Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: April 1, 2015

I went into Legenderry: Green Hornet #2 with a little bit of trepidation. Not only had I never read the Dynamite Legenderry series, but I’ve never really had any exposure to steampunk. Yes, I’m familiar with the basic concept of it, but I know next to nothing when it comes to the particulars. But, I love the Green Hornet, so I figured I’d give it a shot.

Alternative history has always fascinated me, mainly because our past is full of pivotal points in time. If we were to alter a single incident, what else would change? Similarly, time travel offers the exact same scenarios unless you are among those who believe that fate is decreed and cannot be changed. The only reason I mention this is because Divinity #1 works on the premise that during the Cold War, the Soviets were far more advanced than we Americans were. But as oftentimes happens, fledgling science has repercussions. Which leads us to our story…

Shadowman: End Times #1
Written by Peter Milligan
Art by Valentine De Landro
Letters by Dave Lanphear
Covers by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Jeff Dekal, David Mack
Valiant Entertainment
Release Date: April 30, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

It’s time to shake things up a bit in the dark and scary world of Shadowman. Not just another story arc, Shadowman: End Times #1 is the first in a three-part mini-series that is bringing some big changes for Jack Boniface. And as to whether or not he survives this, only time will tell.

This issue opens with our hero, Jack, wrestling with his own personal demons. We’ve heard that expression many times before, right? Well, in Jack’s case it’s literally accurate. You see, he’s the host for a semi-demonic spirit called a loa. This entity grants him great powers, but at the same time exacts a horrible price, tainting his soul and trying to overpower his psyche. And since this is a hereditary power, he’s all too aware of how the end usually comes.

Comic Review: Watson and Holmes

Watson And Holmes #1-6
Created by Brandon Perlow & Paul Mendoza
Written by Karl Bollers
Art by Rick Leonardi, Larry Stroman
Colors by Paul Mendoza, GuruEFX, Archie Van Buren, Jay David Ramos
Letters by Taylor Esposito, Dave Lanphear, Nicole McDonnell, Wilson Ramos Jr.
New Paradigm Studios
Cover Price: $2.99 each

Is it just me or does it seem like everything is getting a makeover or a reboot these days? I know the winds of change are always blowing but sometimes it feels like everything is the same, though perhaps just slightly different. Take the legendary Sherlock Holmes, for instance. New movies, a couple of ongoing television programs, and several different comics. Some are modern, some are not. Every one of them is ever so slightly different in the concept, few are spectacular. None of them, however, are as far off the beaten path as Watson And Holmes.

This particular incarnation features two men, both African-American, with a distinct sense of civic duty. We still have Holmes as a private investigator with uncanny deduction skills but this time he’s a bit more action oriented. His well-known and steadfast companion is still in the medical field but this time he’s an intern and far more athletic than in versions past. The setting is very urban, gang activity is a way of life and death is commonplace. A place where the innocent and the guilt live side by side and the line between them is blurred. And even though the status quo is so disheartening, the locals are terrified of what might happen were they to become involved in anything.

Quantum and Woody #5
Written by James Asmus
Illustrated by Ming Doyle
Colors by Jordie Bellaire
Lettered by Dave Lanphear
Covers by Andrew Robinson, Lee Garbett, David Lopez, and Mike McKone
Valiant Entertainment
Release Date: November 6, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

James Asmus continues writing duties for Quantum and Woody #5 along with illustrator Ming Doyle and colorist Jordie Bellaire. Fresh off their first adventure, the two misfit brothers who’ve accidentally gained super powers are taking on life together — and this time they’ve brought a pet goat along for the ride!

Upon realizing that the bracelets Eric (secretly the superhero named Quantum) and Woody both wear force them to rejuvenate their powers every 24 hours or else they’ll perish, the brothers put aside their differences and move in together. Unfortunately for Eric, Woody — acting like an immature child as always — invites a beautiful clone of the evil scientist who killed their father to live with them. The two men soon begin to grasp the notion that having powers is quite the adjustment. Meanwhile, there are blatantly evil happenings going on all over the city and someone very close to Eric wishes to take advantage of his new found abilities.
