Best Comics (?) of 2017 – Part Three

Instead of fake awards, and highlighting news for the past year, which seemed to consist almost entirely of people complaining online about one thing or another. Instead of trying to come up with lists of things that I enjoyed, which will most likely embarrass me to look at in a few years, I'm going to hit on a few things from the past year that I thought were worth looking back on with some fondness.

Barbarella #1 Review

One of Dynamite’s releases this week is a comics character with a history going back decades. Barbarella presents the space-faring heroine popularized by Jane Fonda in 1968, based on the French science fiction comic from 1962.

I'm always a little hesitant when a company launches a Kickstarter. Archie learned a hard lesson when it tried to do one with the New Riverdale launch a couple of years ago. Dynamite has apparently been reluctant.

The new Vampirella series has interested me since the #0 issue that was practically given away as a method of re-introducing the character to readers. The feeling of this series was decidedly different, embracing a more mature tone by a writer that grasped what it meant to actually write for truly more mature readers. Vampirella

In Case You Missed It: Betty Boop TPB

The Betty Boop series from Dynamite may have flown under your radar, but it has a creative team that screams for you to consider buying this collection. Roger Langridge has written great comics, some of which he's drawn, and is capable of writing not only comedy, but some stories that you can really get into. Gisèle Lagacé has an art style that lends itself to a variety of stories, as shown by her work on Jem and the Holograms and her own webcomic, Ménage à 3. SHe can take a fun story and inject it with all the humanity needed to keep you pulled in. I'm personally looking forward to re-reading this series in one sitting.

Kiss/Vampirella Press Release Is Entertaining On It’s Own

We get lots of press releases. The Kiss/Vampirella crossover announcement  at first looks like just another press release for a crossover comic. In reading it, it gets highly entertaining with Gene Simmons referring to Vampirella creator Forrest J. Ackerman as "Forry"and writer Chris Selba describing all of the 1970s Kiss-inspired craziness in this comic. It even makes the paragraph-long description of eleven variant covers tolerable. Check out the press release below.

The New Vampirella #1 Will Only Cost You A Quarter

Dynamite has published Vampirella for many years now, and tried a few different takes on her character, most recently changing her iconic, extremely revealing costume to a more modest and practical one. From the look of the covers and the attached press release, the new series is going back to the character’s roots less in
