007: For King and Country #4

Aug 23, 2023

The StoryHaving gone to Washington in order to get some help from his CIA contact Felix. Bond has a chance encounter with 005 who claims that again Gann 002 was second in command of Myrmidon and cannot be trusted. Having no other evidence to prove this. Bond has to do a little digging himself and is starting to wonder about who he can and can't trust. Things escalate somewhat when Agent Clark is nearly captured by Myrmidon.

007: For King and Country #6

Dec 8, 2023

Philip Kennedy Johnson wraps this story up beautifully and leaves a few threads open so that Gann can potentially make a return at some future date. I loved the themes and tropes that Johnson used to tell this story. Nanotech and other technologies that have the potential to allow one person to play god is of huge concern as is A.I. in general. So this book story is one that I feel many fans will likely be discussing for some time to come. The topics and themes within the story are very much mirroring many of the discussions that have been happening in the world's media for quite some time. Bond's decision in the end was as much for the rest of the world as it was for England.

Adventureman (2020) #1

A promising start to what looks like it may be a good pulp-style story. My only criticism is that Claire's meal with her family dragged on a little, but perhaps that was the point. Matt Fraction has something pretty cool brewing here. I'm ready for my second serving.

"TO THE GREATEST UNKNOWN" does a fantastic job of trying up one story arc and sawing the seeds to start a newer story. Thankfully, we'll not have to be waiting quite as long for the next issue. But that said this particular issue was well worth the wait as I had very nearly forgotten that I had subscribed to this book. Especially given that Covid and various other considerations had delayed its release by a whole year.

Matt Fraction giving us a ghost Adventureman story this close to Christmas is genius. The artwork continues to work really well with Fractions narrative and the colours and visuals continue to look very much like an old 30s pulp series, but set in the modern-day. Additionally, this issue is a wonderful introduction for the cowboy hero Champion Strong, who I am hoping we'll see more of in the months ahead.

If I have any criticism of this book. It is that we haven't really seen too much in this story from the opposite side of the fence as to the kind of upbringing the Messiah's opposite number had and how he or she has been living their life. I guess the writer is saving all of that for later issues. Either way, it would be cool to see that.

American Mythology: Monsters (2021) #1

Jan 23, 2021

Overall. ‘American Mythology Monsters' is a fun reinterpretation of the classic Universal Monster movies from the 1930s. The artwork is pretty good for a black and white book and allows you to fill in the colors with your own imagination. Out of the three stories. I found ‘Bite' to offer the most interesting reinterpretation whereas ‘Safiya' was the most visually interesting.

Avatar (2019): Adapt or Die #3

Jul 12, 2022

OverallThis story continues to move along at a satisfying pace. The events of a virus taking out the indigenous life on Pandora is somewhat similar to what happened to many Native American tribes when the European settlers made America their home. Bringing with them strains of many viruses and diseases that the Native tribes had no immunity to. The interplay between Moat and Eytukan provides the backbone of this story as Eytukan's anti-human views give him some compelling arguments. We also have some nice moments between Grace and Selfridge as the latter says that the disease could well make his job easier. Of course, Grace isn't too impressed with Selfridge's attitude.

But its the scenes set in the 30's that really show off Robinson's work here. His attention to detail and the specalative look of Doc's invention of the flying car is brilliant fun.

The inhalers that Shaw gets put me in mind of the Superdrug that was depicted in 'Limitless'. I really want to see this made into a TV show or a movie. It is that much fun.

I loved how S.T.R.I.K.E. was used in this issue.

This has been a fantastic monthlycomic, which I am going to miss now that it is at an end. Hopefully, David Avallone will come up with another caper for Bettie and her friendsto figure out at a later date.

Bettie Page: Halloween Special #1

Oct 23, 2018

OverallAn enjoyable read and a reminder that I cannot have enough Bettie Page comic book stories in my life. I was really impressed with what Leah Williams did with so little space to fill and Dave Avallone continues to impress with his knack for being able to write a pulp story and create dialogue that fits specific time periods.

Nov 19, 2018

OverallA solid opening issue, which sets the ball rolling on another bunch of adventures for Bettie Page. I'm looking forward to seeing where David Avallone will take this in future issues. I really enjoyed how we got a brief callback to the Halloween issue, which was released last month and I really appreciated how fast we got into the adventure. I look forward to seeing what Bettie thinks of the English dessert known as Spotted Dick. If indeed she has time for such trivial pursuits.

Most of all though. It is the way the mystery of this book is set up. It very much feels like a 1930s and 40s movie serial with the cliffhanger ending, which keeps you on the edge of your seat. I can't wait for issue 3.

Bettie Page (2018) #3

Apr 9, 2019

My only complaint is the lettering. In the panels where Bettie is wearing the helmet. It is barely visible due to the fact that her voice sounds lower. The letterer chose to have the lettering fade to a point where even the most sighted person would have to squint in order to read this dialogue. I have friends that are partially sighted who read comics that would have struggled with this. So I have to address this issue by asking if there might have been another way to sell this fact in the story. Instead of fading the text so much.

Jan 27, 2021

Overall. The Agatha Christie feel of this story reminded me of countless movies and TV shows have seen over the years. Though I don't think any of them had a heroic Elephant called Tuskems. In a sense, it was the use of the Agatha Christie-style mystery that gave this comic a warm and familiar feeling. Although I had pretty much figured out who the villains were a couple of issues back. But, despite that. I still had fun following along with the story. It's a fun read, but not the best Bettie Page story to come from Dynamite.

This isn't a bad story, but I can't help but feel that the character of Beauregard is getting a lot more attention than the titular character who seems to be a lot less streetwise than previous incarnations of her character that have been published by Dynamite. Hopefully, we see Bettie evolve in future issues because right now she doesn't seem to be the same character that I have read in previous books as Beauregard seems to be doing all the investigation.

The panels of a Dying Martha Wayne asking the Els to take over the Kingdom were brilliantly drawn. As was Luthors transformation and introduction as a key villain. The final page where we see The Dark Knight and Alfred ride out is really cool. I can't wait for more Dark Knights of Steel.

Elvira Meets Vincent Price #4

Jan 6, 2022

Once again David Avallone proves to be a master of pulp storytelling as well as the double entendre. He captures Elvira's personality brilliantly and pretty much every interaction that she has is brilliantly written. I also really enjoyed how well-written the banter was between Elvira and Vincent Price and would love to see this pairing return for more adventures.

Dec 5, 2019

This has been a fun series to follow. It is apparent that David Avallone's imagination knows no bounds when it comes to writing leading ladies in comics, which is something that has been apparent since he released his Betty Page comics. His take on Elvira has been as good as Betty. So much so that I think it would be fun to see a crossover between the two ladies in a future series. You could probably do Elvira, Betty Page, and Vampirella in the one series. Of course, Dynamite would have to give the go-ahead on that, but hell. I'd read it.

We also learn that it is a rival tribe to these druids that have been helping Morgana, which could make for some interesting events in issue 3 given that Apocalypse and unconscious Rogue are the only defence for the Lighthouse given that Captain Britain has gone off to the otherworld.

OverallTini Howard continues to weave an interesting and fun story. I've really enjoyed the inclusion of Merlyn and now King Arthur. Though King Arthur being the bad guy in this is something I am not sure about. Hopefully, Betsy and her team are able to make him see reason. As I suspect Merlyn's influence on Arthur is a huge part of what will wind up resolving this story arc. Furthermore, I'm finding Merlyn being such a closed-minded character to be a little disturbing. However, I do realise that art. Even when it comes to comics is rather subjective. And I am kind of enjoying how this book is challenging some of my pre-conceived ideas when it comes to the King Arthur legends.

Tim Seeley's narrative has been thankfully fairly easy to follow with each issue, which is a miracle given that with it being set in a different universe in each issue it could be a lot more complex. I really liked the good humor in this issue and the cheesy jokes coming for Orco who was looking to have Holidays named after him. This immediately made this issue feel like the animated show that I remembered watching as a kid in the 80s. So this was a rather nostalgic issue for me.

OverallThis was a fairly good conclusion to the current story arc, but also an origin story of sorts for the partnership of James Bond and Brandy Keys, which is going to continue into the next story arc. As a long term Bond fan. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about his being partnered up for the long term, but I do like the partnership that has formed here in that Brandy seems very much like James Bond in that she is a rule-breaker, but unlike Bond, she is across all the details. Whereas Bond is always off the cuff in that he improvises a lot more than he plans. All I ask of the writers is this, please don't have Bond and Brandy fall in love'. It never ends well when Bond falls in love.

I enjoyed the backdrop of the fishermen blaming their misfortunes on the French and the Tory MP talking about the fishing quotas that were supposedly being imposed by the EU. But the best part was how the Merwoman is relating her story to us as well as to Constantine. It will be interesting to see how Constantine will help the Merwoman get some retribution in the second part of this story, which will hopefully release at some stage in July.

John Constantine: Hellblazer #8

Aug 1, 2020

I really enjoyed the analogy that Constantine uses to describe magic. How he compares magic to a school of salmon and the miracle that is migration in terms of all the crap that they put up with only to move to the exact same spot that they left the year prior. Overall. A fun read and perhaps one of the more tragic Constantine stories that we have had to date.

John Constantine: Hellblazer #9

Sep 1, 2020

OverallSimon Spurrier comes up with a neat story, which plays on many of the conspiracy theories to do with the British Monarchy and takes advantage of some very recent scandals. Namely the whole deal with Prince Andrew and his associations with Weinstein. Lucky not a single Pizza join was soiled with Royalty in the making of the book. The set up of the Royal Family's fondness of Horse Racing and Horse breeding was brilliantly utilized to give us a Unicorn story, but with a Constantine twist.

John Constantine: Hellblazer #11

Nov 2, 2020

Aaron Campbell continues to provide some brilliant artwork for this series. I loved the atmosphere he manages to evoke with his rough penciled outlines for the winding stairs that lead to what is under Parliament. The drawing of Clem Thurso is also quite freaky. Especially in late pages when you see him with part of his face mask removed.

Kick-Ass vs Hit-Girl (2020) #1

Nov 10, 2020

This opening issue sets things up brilliantly. But it also shows me just how much I have missed given that Maurice had only awoken from his coma and just begun his campaign of blackmail when I last read Kick-Ass. Nevertheless, I had little problem picking up the story and was caught up pretty quickly. Steve Niles writing is quick and fast and doesn't overly rely on exposition. Instead, he uses dialogue and action to move things along, which allows Marcelo Frusin lots of room to use his imagery to push the story forward. In short, this first issue hits really hard and pulls you in, and doesn't let go. It's a brilliant opener.

For instance, the way in which Kick-Ass is eavesdropping on Kick-Ass as she takes out the gang members. It's all brilliantly done. I can't wait for the next issue to come round.

The writing of this comic continues to be top notch. Raymond Obstfeild has been doing an awesome job of transcribing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's novel into a comic book and has been helped massively by the brilliant art of Joshua Cassara.

The Artwork by Jen St-ongecontinues to do some really nice things. I loved the drawings of Nancy and the gang when they were kids exploring the same caves and the facial expressions are really well drawn. There is kind of a Japanese influence to the drawing with the use of rather large eyes.

Sheena: Queen of the Jungle (2017) #6

The reveal on the final page, which introduces us to Huntress is worth the price of admission alone. I look forward to issue two.

Sheena: Queen of the Jungle (2017) #7

Mar 26, 2018

Overall. This was another solid issue with some awesome story beats and great artwork. I can't wait for the next issue to see what it all goes. Plus I'd love for us to be able to get to know Sheena's Grandmother a little more. She makes a big impression on this issue and hopefully will stick around for awhile in forthcoming issues. We get left with an excellent cliffhanger, which could well potentially be history repeating itself.

Sheena: Queen of the Jungle (2017) #8

Apr 23, 2018

Overall. This is a fantastic issue that sees the story moved forward, the issue starts off with a nice flashback to Sheena's early childhood. Hopefully, we get to see Sheena's mother return in the next issue. Issue seven was a really great issue in which mother and daughter reconnected and it be nice to see that paid off a bit more.

Sheena: Queen of the Jungle (2017) #9

May 30, 2018

Overall. This issue builds at a rapid pace and is obviously drawing this chapter of the story to its natural end, which we'll likely see in the next issue. All that said. I somehow think Sheena will most likely have a few more encounters with Caldwell Industries in the months to come. They are proving to be a recurring threat.

Sheena: Queen of the Jungle (2017) #10

Jul 11, 2018

This was a fantastic issue, which saw a few confrontations as well as a couple of reveals. Writers Marguerite Bennett and Christina Trujillo continue to feed us enough clues about the story and plot to keep us interested while providing some nice dialogue between the various characters.

Sherlock Holmes (2023) #1

Sep 25, 2023

I found this 75-page origin story for Spencer Holmes to be really entertaining and think that they'd be better served calling the book Spencer Holmes as opposed to selling it as Sherlock as they move forward. The characters were fun and engaging and Spencer was very easy to like. Especially given the trauma that she experiences during this first adventure.

Sherlock Holmes: The Vanishing Man #1

May 2, 2018

Overall. This is a great first issue that has me wanting more. What happened to Michael Williams? Will Wiggins manage to get away from the chemist? Does Michael Williams disappearance have any connection to the archaeologicalfindings that Holmes read about? I guess we're all going to have to wait to next month to get some of these answers.

I particularly enjoyed the banter between Swiggy and Thomas at the start of the issue and I love that this world has pre cogs and psychics and such. Love the use of mythology in this book and the fact that Merlin is portrayed as more of a villain.

Space Bandits #2

Aug 5, 2019

OverallThis second issue continues the story that was so wonderfully set up in the first issue. Mark Millar provides a hatful of fun dialogue and some of the exchanges between the main two character are already sounding very much like banter. I loved how he has Cody take Thena through her plan and the various stages of it. It felt a little like Oceans 11 meets Prison Break and Star Wars.

Space Bandits #4

Oct 1, 2019

OverallThis issue was worth the wait. I especially enjoyed the quieter moments where Cody and Thena get to do a little bonding, which sort of put me in mind of films such as Thelma and Louise. It is very apparent that seeds are being sewn for the final issue, which promises to be an absolute stonker if the final page cliffhanger is anything to go by. Like pretty much most readers. I can't wait to see how all of this will end, but also hope it will lead to some further adventures for these two strong female characters.

Space Bandits #5

Nov 5, 2019

OverallA fantastic way to close out the story. The final moments in which we see Thena and Cody kind of put me in a mind a little of the ending to ‘Trading Places'. This is another one that I will be looking to buy a physical copy of when it is released on trade. If it is out in time for Christmas. It is one I'd definitely add to the list.

Star Trek (2022) #3

Jan 23, 2023

The writing team made clever use of Q for this story and reuniting Q with Sisko was fun to see given that the characters have only encountered each other once and the DS9 series. The book leaves off with a fun tease for the next issue in which I think we will see Sisko visit a planet of Gods, hmm, I wonder if he will get to ask these gods if they need the use of his Starship. I'm pretty sure Scotty will have a word or two to say about that. All in all this story feels like a Star Trek story.

Star Trek (2022) #6

Apr 15, 2023

This issue does a fairly decent job of continuing this outlandish and metaphysical story in which Sisko gets to go where absolutely no one has gone before as he talks a God down from wiping out the Earth. Added to this we get a nice reference to the first issue of Star Trek: Defiant as Sisko looks to recruit someone to take over from Worf as his second in command. For now the story pauses as the Theseus returns home to DS9. But the hunt to capture Kahless will most likely continue in future issues.

Star Trek (2022) #7

Apr 29, 2023

The ArtworkThe artwork throughout this book is fairly solid but is a bit hit-and-miss with some of the character likenesses. Specifically when it comes to Sisko's wife. That said the drawings of the various locations such as Quarks Bar are fairly strong. By far the strongest art is when we see a fleet of Dominion War-era Cardassian Ships go up against Sisko.

Star Trek (2022) #8

May 23, 2023

At a certain point in this story. We get a nice homage paid to the Deep Space Nine TV show as we see Jake Sisko recall the adventure he had with his dad when they navigated space in a Bajorian Sail Barge. The art for this segment, which sees Theseus kitted out with Bajoran Sales is brilliant to look at. It also made me smile seeing Tom Paris's big goofy grin while using an old ship's steering wheel to steer the ship.

Star Trek (2022) #10

Jul 15, 2023

This issue wraps up the trial of Benjamin Sisko rather too quickly for my taste as I felt it was all a little too rushed. However, the mission brief of this issue was obviously to get the story arc concluded in order to start the ongoing Star Trek comic to link up with the DAY OF BLOOD storyline that has just begun in Star Trek: Defiant. This mission is absolutely accomplished with some thrilling final pages.

Collin Kelly does a solid job of finishing this story but leaves a few plot threads hanging to get picked up in future issues. I loved how the issue ended with Lore looking to take advantage of the power vacuum that Kahless had left behind. But I also loved the clever way in which the writer uses Sela and makes her a relevant character again.
