I love all things Conan. This is an indisputable fact, my friends will testify to it. That is, until this particular comic was delivered to me. I thoroughly enjoyed the Dark Horse led Conan/Red Sonja miniseries that preceded this Dynamite attempt. But Red Sonja/Conan #1 seemed…unnatural, for lack of a better word. Or maybe I’m critiquing it overmuch.

The Spirit #1 is the latest addition to Dynamite Entertainment’s pulp library and I honestly have to say, with very few exceptions, these pulp characters are being given rock star treatment by Dynamite editorial, and it really shows.

The Six Million Dollar Man, Season Six #3
Written by Jim Kuhoric
Art by Juan Antonio Ramirez
Colors by Fran Gamboa
Letters by Joshua Cozine
Covers by Alex Ross and Ken Haeser
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: May 21, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

In The Six Million Dollar Man, Season Six #3, Steve Austin has a LOT of work to do! And, most of it, he’s not even aware of yet. Will he make it through? C’mon, it’s Steve Austin!

Once again, writer Jim Kuhoric does a fantastic job at writing this comic. It’s got everything that you want to see and more. Think of it as watching the original television series, but with today’s special effects. That’s the great thing about comics. NOTHING is off limits. He doesn’t have a producer or a studio to answer to or one that will not allow him to do certain things because it would be too expensive. So, he shoots for the moon, and he totally scores! This issue is packed with action, subplots, and all around great action. There are healthy doses of mystery, suspense, and all-out fun. Comics that are written like this are few and far between.

Doc Savage: The Man Of Bronze #5
Written by Chris Roberson
Illustrated by Bilquis Evely
Colored by Daniela Miwa
Lettered by Rob Steen
Covers by Alex Ross, John Cassaday
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: April 30, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

I’ve been a fan of the Man of Bronze for over thirty years, having discovered one of the books in a local used bookstore. Those pulp stories were like gold (or maybe just bronze) to me. I still feel like the character is the literary equivalent of comics’ Batman. A normal man with perfectly honed skills, strength, and intellect. So it should come as no shock that I asked to review Doc Savage: The Man Of Bronze #5 when I saw it in the review list. And being a long-time fan, I dove straight in. Here’s my take on this issue.
