Over thirty years since the release of the original film and the franchise still holds just as much magic for me now as it did then. I speak, of course, of the movie Highlander. With the release of this newest comic Highlander: The American Dream #1, I find myself drawn back into the world of sword swinging immortals and their quest to be the last of their kind. As it is so eloquently put: “There can be only one.”

Would you look at this, I’m getting to review a Kiss comic. Usually Empress Eve is the one who gets the pleasure of reviewing Kiss items, but as luck would have it, she’s extraordinarily busy right now and I didn’t hesitate to jump on it! So here is Dynamite Entertainment’s KISS #1!
The setup is this: The world reached a point where civilization was in jeopardy and war threatened to exterminate mankind, once and for all. The Great War, as it is now referred to 468 years later, forced a large group of people underground. They pieced together a new society, saving what they could from the surface in an attempt to preserve at least some of their history. For almost five centuries, these survivors have lived in the subterranean city of Blackwell in peace and solitude. But nothing lasts forever.
Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dynamite comic book titles that were released on December 30, 2015. I’m really enjoying the Vampirella storyline with Aliens, or is it the Aliens storyline with Vampirella. Whichever, it’s been fun. I also got my first taste of Warren Ellis writing James Bond. Well done, sir. Well done, indeed.

You know that saying “You are your own worst enemy?” Well, no one knows that as well as the guy who’s currently calling himself Sebastian. You might know him from his exploits a decade ago. But this story is unfolding in the newest installment: Fight Club 2 #2. Because if you crack the candy(ass) coating you’ll get a long, dark look at Tyler Durden lurking right below the surface. He is buried inside, right? Hunh, well maybe not.
If you find yourself unfamiliar with Chuck Palahniuk‘s Fight Club then shame on you, there’s really no excuse for that kind of behavior. When we are done here I expect you to go grab a copy and read it. And no, watching the movie does not count. Because as sure as I am sitting here listening to Filter, you NEED to embrace the awesomeness that is Chuck P. So much twisted goodness that you won’t know what to do. But I digress. Let’s chat about this comic, shall we?
I don’t know why I never thought of a Star Trek and Green Lantern crossover before, but it makes a lot of sense when you think about it. IDW Publishing, DC Comics, and CBS Consumer Products made the announcement this weekend at WonderCon 2015 that they are teaming up to release Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War this July. The six-issue mini-series will be written by Mike Johnson with art by Angel Hernandez.
The Spectrum War will feature Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps going into the world of Star Trek‘s 23rd Century, joining forces with the Federation after some of the Federation’s greatest enemies find themselves in possession of some Power Rings.
