    Dynamite has done well with Doc Savage before " the Justice Inc story arc with the Avenger and the Shadow was very well done. Savage had foes and allies who were his equals. They had not only the ability to stop him; they had the ability to defeat him. Heroes are often judged by their villains " the Rogues Gallery that confronts them. Holmes has Moriarty. Batman has the Joker. Dr Who had the Master. In the pulps, Doc Savage had John Sunlight. Read Full Review

    Doc Savage is a character that could have a pretty fun renaissance if given the chance and a bit of a mainstream push – we're still holding out hope for that Shane Black movie working right – and this series shows the way you can work past and present into it well enough. I still stand by the idea that Doc works best in the past but Roberson and Rezak handled it well enough in the present even if they do seem to be almost too capable with their corporation and staffing. There are definitely some fun things in this series overall and I liked the mystery of Arachne as it went along but Weaver as the final villain just ended up falling short and wasn't as compelling as it could be. It'll be interesting to see what the next Doc series is like. Read Full Review
