Jim Butcher The Dresden Files: Dog Men banner

If you know anything about me at all, then you know I have been a Jim Butcher fan for years. Meeting him was one of the greatest things that ever happened as a bookstore manager and I have long been a supporter of all things Dresden Files. So the recent announcement that there was another comic book series coming is one worthy of shouting from the mountain tops. Yep, that’s right. A new series is coming this Summer from Dynamite Entertainment called The Dresden Files: Dog Men.

Check out the covers for Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Dog Men #1 here below.

Vampirella 2017 #1
Written by Paul Cornell
Art by Jimmy Broxton

Cover C by Joseph Michael Linsner
Cover D by Cosplay Cover Variant
Cover E by Jimmy Broxton
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: March 15, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

The one thing that sticks out, at least with me, is the sheer number of times this character has been given new origins or has be revamped (no pun intended) over the decades. To be fair though, most don’t deal with the future like Vampirella 2017 #1 does here. She has changed much over the decades, but has always remained a kick ass vampire that takes no crap from anyone.

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: March 15, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I don’t normally make a habit out of reviewing or spotlighting every issue in a mini-series, but with this one I cannot seem to help it. Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #3 continues to astound me and make me nostalgic for my childhood. Additionally, with March being Women’s History Month, it only seems fitting that we celebrate these iconic characters. Though, to be fair, I plan on celebrating this series each and every month regardless.

Release Date: March 8, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Okay, so confession time. I am not a fan of the Charmed franchise, best known for the television series which ran from 1998 to 2006 on The WB (before it eventually became The CW). I tried to like it but it wasn’t really my cup of tea, so to speak. My wife on the other hand, loved the TV series and every single novel that I could find that featured these witches. But as it holds such a special place in her heart, I decided to show it some love here. Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to Charmed: A Thousand Deaths #1 from Dynamite Entertainment.

Release Date: March 8, 2017
Paperback | Digital

Is it just me or is everything taking a turn for the darker side lately? Well, I can tell you that Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie #1 is certainly following that trend. This is nothing at all like the books I grew up reading in the seventies. As a matter of fact, it feels like it would make a rather successful television show on the CW.

Bond. James Bond. Iconic and straightforward, just like the man himself. As a matter of fact, this might be both his greatest strength and most crippling weakness. In the newest tale from Dynamite Entertainment, Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007: Black Box #1, this is explored and exploited in equal amounts.

Covers by Kyle Strahm & Greg Smallwood, Tom Mandrake & Mohan, Michael Adams, Ken Haeser

Release Date: January 25, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I think we can all remember our first concert/show, right? If you are an audiophile then I have no doubt you do. Well, KISS: The Demon #1 reminds me of my first show since the headliner was the aforementioned band KISS. Not only were they my first band to see live but, later on, they were the first group I ever went and saw without an adult.

So, to say they hold a special place in my heart is to understate things in an enormous way. The point is, I share that same feeling with the main character of this story, which is a prequel to the ongoing comic.

Last month I reviewed the first issue of this mini-series and found it to be everything I wanted and more and the follow up is no different. Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #2 is phenomenal from start to finish. Action packed and full of sly references to that time period and the changes that have occurred since.

This revival of iconic characters from my youth has been extraordinarily hit or miss, but in the case of Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #1, it is certainly a home run. I was always a huge fan of Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman, but only occasionally watched The Bionic Woman. Not sure if it was a schedule conflict or what; I remember liking the 1970s Lindsay Wagner show, but just not seeing it often. Now, our friends at Dynamite Entertainment have teamed up with DC Comics to bring us one of the best TV titan team-ups ever!

Art of Atari review

Art of Atari
Hardcover | Kindle
Written by Tim Lapetino
Foreword by Ernest Cline
Afterword by Robert V. Conte
Dynamite Entertainment
Publication Date: October 25, 2016

Art of Atari, a lavish book which covers all things visually historic and celebratory regarding the storied, pioneering video game company, is out in bookstores now, and without question, if there ever was a must-have book for the video game zealot, the pop culture maven, or the scores of gamers in between, this is it.

Absolutely essential from cover to cover and irresistible in its one-two dazzling punch with its presentment of facts and a literal overstuffed yet 100 percent effective usage of photos containing pretty much every single facet of the company’s output that required some sort of art, Art of Atari leaves no stone un-turned, not even the most minute pebble. From the packaging of the boxes for its line of 2600 VCS games to the sides and front of its successful and now almost legendary line of arcade coin-op games, and advertisements that stretched from stark simple white background designs with a spectrum of colorful game boxes to the most rebel rousing and sensory lifting art of the highest caliber, it’s all showcased this hardcover tome, and then some.
