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.
Dynamite Entertainment has five comics and a collection of last year's Swords of Sorrow event arriving at your local comic shop. Check out the previews and see what you want to add to your weekly haul.
Dynamite has some really great books arriving at your local comic shop this Wednesday. Alice Cooper Vs. Chaos! #5 writer: Tim Seeley, Jim Terry artist: Jim Terry cover: Joyce Chin incentive cover: Joyce Chin (B/W art) FC • 32 pages • $3.99 • Teen+ Alice Cooper discovers just how chaotic the Chaos! Universe can truly be, as he faces off against the horrific monsters of his own mind. Meanwhile, the Chosen tangle with a monstrous tree, while Evil Ernie is the prisoner of an even more evil pharmaceutical company! Can the unlikely alliances of Alice Cooper, the dream witch Vex, and the vampire assassin Chastity escape from a twisted nightmare realm and stop the badder guys from beating the bad guys?
It's a big, thick week for Dynamite Previews, and not with the number of books hitting your local comics shop, but in the page counts for the three books they're shipping to stores. Check out the previews below.
Dynamite just added another book to their releases for this week, Vampirella 1969. Even through all of the changes in the industry, Vampirella remains one of the most iconic female characters around. Her resurgence in 1991 heralded the rise of the bad girl craze in American comics, of which she is one of the handful of characters to survive. Dynamite's handling of the character since 2010 has honored her past, as well as progressing her story forward.
It's a light week for Dynamite Comics this week, but after the hectic publishing schedule that they've had this summer with the Swords of Sorrow event, I think fans of their comics will welcome a lighter week. Check out the Dynamite Comics previews below.
We get review copies from several companies in our e-mail every week, and in most cases, we don't review them because of the comics review policy we have of using reviews to promote the best that comics have to offer unless a comic is being so heavily promoted that it's in the interest of our readers for us to review them. This week, Dynamite sent us some review copies and I decided to take a loot at a Red Sonja special, Red Sonja 1973, which has several short stories featuring the She-Devil With A Sword as she was called back shortly after her 1973 debut.
I have been very hesitant about this crossover Dynamite is putting together with all of their female characters, but see the definite potential in it, and seeing Gail Simone heading it up has me hoping for the best. After seeing three of the variant covers for this issue, I was very worried about what was ahead.
So, you’re going to swing by your local comic shop for some books to read over the long weekend when everyone else is slugging it out over Black Friday deals. Well, Dynamite is hoping you’ll pick up a couple of their comics. Bionic Woman: Season Four #3 Brandon Jerwa (w) David T. Cabrera (a) Sean
