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.

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.
Tomorrow marks the release of Star Wars #1, the launch of a new comic book series from Marvel Comics written by Jason Aaron with art by John Cassaday, so the publisher has released preview pages from the debut issue.
This new Star Wars series, which will be considered “canon,” is a continuing adventure of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Darth Vader in a story that picks up soon after the events of the original 1977 film, Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope.
Check out the preview pages here below, along with a few images from Cassaday’s sketchbook for the issue. You can pre-order the print version of the 48-page Star Wars #1 (2015) through Amazon and TFAW, or head out to your local comic shop tomorrow to pick up a copy.
When it was announced that Marvel would be taking over the publication of the Star Wars comic books, you had to assume they were going to put some of their top talents on the book. And if you didn’t assume that, you assumed wrong, because Marvel has announced their plans for the first set of Star Wars books, and it includes some of their top writers and artists.
Starting in January 2015, Marvel will launch three new comic books, all taking place just after the end of Star Wars: A New Hope. The line of comics starts in January with Star Wars by writer Jason Aaron (Thor, Original Sin) with art by John Cassaday (Uncanny Avengers). This series will follow all of the main characters in an all-new series of adventures set just after the Battle of Yavin.
Check out the covers for the first three issues below and let us know if you’re excited for this new era of Star Wars comics.
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.
