I've been impressed by the new Vampirella series from Dynamite. It harkens back to classic Vampirella stories with it's setting more in the realm of science-fiction rather than horror, super-heroes, or bad girl comic book genres.
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.
Dynamite has certainly made the effort lately in new projects, endeavoring to breathe new life into established characters.Their recent press release announcing a new Mighty Mouse series shows something that could be a problem for this company fighting valiantly for a larger share of the comics market left by Marvel and DC.
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.
I was pleasantly, but cautiously surprised by Vampirella #0. Dynamite promises a new direction for the character. Vampirella #1 is the official beginning of this new direction. Does my pleasant surprise turn into an appreciation?

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
At SDCC 2016, Dynamite announced a new Betty Boop series written by Roger Langridge and drawn by Gisèle Lagacé. Since we've already stated for the public record this week that Gisèle Lagacé is one of our favorite artists, we're thrilled to share some of the artwork that she shared through Facebook, and from Comics Alliance, who ran the preview pages. Colors on the last preview page are by Maria Victoria Robado.

Dynamite sent us a review copy of the first issue for their new limited series, Control. I went in to the review with no expectations, as the solicitations were a long time ago, and the preview copies come from Dynamite without the solicitation info. The cover isn't even shown until we download the review copy and open it up to read. However, once I opened it up...
Dynamite is making a habit of chronicling the adventures of some iconic female characters. This week sees the release of their latest addition to a roster of heroines, Xena, the Warrior Princess. For the publisher of Red Sonja, It seems like a natural fit.
