Lady Rawhide #1Lady Rawhide #1
Written by Eric Trautmann

Release Date: August 7, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Lady Rawhide #1 really surprised me. I’m a big fan of Zorro and his universe, but in the past, Lady Rawhide was basically the Catwoman to his Batman. That has really changed in this new incarnation from Dynamite Entertainment.

I’ve been a fan of writer Eric Trautmann for a little while. Actually, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with him. I LOVED his work on the excellent Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist miniseries. He was doing such a great job on that book, I was really hoping that it would turn into an ongoing series. Then, I didn’t really care at all for his Red Sonja issues. So, when I heard he was writing another book with a female lead, I was more than a bit skeptical. Well, I was pleasantly surprised by this issue. It wasn’t just good, it was GREAT!!!

Grimm #2Grimm #2
Plot by Jim Kouf & David Greenwalt
Script by Marc Gaffen & Kyle McVey
Art by Jose Malaga
Colors by Thiago Dal Bello
Letters by Marshall Dillon
Cover by Lucio Parrillo
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: June 12, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Based on the hit NBC television series Grimm, this comic book series takes Nick and team on all-new adventures and to all new places. Grimm #2 stays true to the show in almost every way imaginable. You can read the comic and almost hear the actors’ voices as you do. As with the television program, we seem to be introduced to new Wesen (pronounced “vessin”) all the time. But that’s only part of the story…

We start this issue with Nick (our resident Grimm and a police detective), Hank (his partner on the police force), and Monroe (a Blutbad clock connoisseur) in Vienna. Having recently traveled there to track down Nick’s mother and the three coins that she was hiding, they find themselves in the company of a badass female Grimm (who dresses as if she moonlights as a dominatrix) and the Resistance with whom she fights. Finding that his mother left him a clue to decode, he sets about trying to unlock the secrets within. Unfortunately, the Wesen army of the Royal families are hot on his trail. A little retreating, some sexual tension, and a whole lot of bullets later, we bear witness to what could be the end for some of our beloved team. Only time will tell because the issue ends at a very exciting part!

Release Date: April 17, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

The Bionic Man vs The Bionic Woman #4 is the big action issue that leads up to the big finale next issue. It’s full of action, and crisp, sharp dialogue and great art, to boot!

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. LET KEITH CHAMPAGNE WRITE THE BIONIC MAN MONTHLY SERIES!!!! He excells in everything that that book needs on a monthly basis. Humor, great, believable dialogue, the ability to put heroes in “real world” situations without going too over the top. Dynamite NEEDS him on that book!But, back to this issue. Steve is missing 3 of his limbs and he’s up against the main big bad from the series. Who can rescue him? I’m not telling! But, Champagne combines all the charm, action and plot line in this book that it’s a great modern day version of both franchises.

The Mighty Skullkickers #1The Mighty Skullkickers #1
Story by Jim Zub
Pencils by Edwin Huang
Inks by Edwin Huang and Kevin Raganit
Colors by Misty Coats and Mike Luckas
Color Flatting by Ludwig Olimba
Letters by Marshall Dillon
Covers by Edwin Huang and Jim Zub, Chris Stevens
Image Comics
Release Date: April 24, 2013
Cover Price: $3.50

The current Skullkickers story arc has been in many ways a commentary on mainstream comics. Although it may seem like I’m making a proverbial mountain out of a blood-soaked-talking-ape-heavy molehill, the team behind Skullkickers have done something that exposes the clearly visible cracks in the veneer that is modern comic publishing.

When DC’s New 52 announcement came down the pipes, most of us thought the same thing, “this is lame, they are just trying to sell more comics.” Then we bought all of them, and a solid portion were terrible. It’s these marketing gimmicks that Jim Zub and the Skullkicker’s team are lampooning with their current story arc. However, when writing commentary into any story, sometimes a plot and solid characters are sacrificed in the name of sticking it to the man. Luckily, the appropriately titled The Mighty Skullkickers #1 delivers a one-two punch of gorgeous art and wit-drenched writing.

The Bionic Man vs. The Bionic Woman #2 is more of the same if you read the first issue. And that is – AWESOME!!! When you picture team-ups in your head, THIS is the kind of book that you picture. A well-told story that makes sense and brings together two of your favorite comic books into one epic masterpiece!!!

I said it last month, and I’ll say it again – writer Keith Champagne should be writing the monthly series for BOTH Bionic Man and The Bionic Woman!!! Champagne does an incredible job at portraying everyone in the “Bionic” universe with dead-on accuracy. Not only that, but he makes the audience believe, in this super-powered day and age, that having bionic ears, eyes, legs, and arms IS a legitimate super power. He’s done the incredible and updated a television series successfully into a fantastic comic. That is truly rare.

Green Hornet #30Green Hornet #30
Written by Jai Nitz
Art by Jethro Morales
Colors by Kristy Swan
Letters by Marshall Dillon
Covers by Phil Hester & Stephen Sadowski
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: October 31, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Green Hornet #30 fills in a much needed gap in the current comic market. And that is super heroes solving crimes and fighting bad guys. Other companies have heroes battling heroes, fighting super villains, but this is just back to basics good guys vs. bad guys.

Author Jai Nitz turns in a fun script in this issue. It’s PACKED with new twists and turns in the Green Hornet saga. He introduces some new allies for the Hornet, does a great job moving the villains story forward without even having the villain IN THE COMIC. And, last but not least, he changes something in the Green Hornet mythos that has never been done before. So far, I kinda like it. It’ll be interesting to see where it goes and if the changes stick.

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: June 13, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

I’ve haven’t had much exposure to Vampirella other than drooling at her famously scant costume in issues of Wizard when I was a teenager. In 2010, Dynamite Entertainment acquired the rights to Vampirella and began publishing her series soon thereafter. One of her longtime allies, Pantha, gets a spot in the limelight with the debut of her own ongoing series, Pantha. This release is the first move of Dynamite’s planned expansion of the Vampirella universe.

In ancient times, Sekhmet the Egyptian goddess of war, committed some atrocities. As punishment, Ra separated several of her aspects and sentenced them to eternally roam the Earth, atoning for Sekhmet’s sins. Pantha, an immortal shape-shifter, is one of these aspects. In this debut comic, she’s investigating a missing persons crime near the Mexican border in New Mexico. What she finds introduces a nemesis long thought dead and a mysterious woman, Mayra, who seems to have some link to Pantha’s Egyptian past.

A Game Of Thrones #6A Game Of Thrones #6
Based on the novel by George R.R. Martin
Adapted by Daniel Abraham
Art by Tommy Patterson
Colors by Ivan Nunes
Letters by Marshall Dillon
Cover by Mike S. Miller
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: February 29, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

This month in A Game Of Thrones #6 we deal mainly with interpersonal relationships between the characters, helping to feed the already twisting plots. Allies are not always to be trusted, nor are enemies always the most dangerous. George R.R. Martin‘s debut novel is brought to the comic reader in breathtaking fashion.

We begin by seeing Jon Snow humiliating one of his “brothers” of the Night’s Watch. Not his finest hour nor an intelligent move on his part. Luckily, he quickly sees the folly of his ways, just as his father, Eddard Stark, knows that being hundreds of leagues away in King’s Landing is perilous on multiple levels. Surprisingly, he discovers his wife is nearby and being hidden in a most unusual place. Again, not everything is as it seems.

Vampirella Vs. Dracula #2Vampirella Vs. Dracula #2
Written by Joe Harris

Cover by Joseph Michael Linsner
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: March 7, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

Ever wonder what would have happened if things were slightly different in the old tale of Dracula? Well, this series explores the concept of it all being a repetitive loop, one where things play out slightly different each time, with the characters sometimes being unaware of what is coming to pass. Add to this timeless tale a new entity, in the form of Vampirella, and you get some very different results. Vampirella Vs. Dracula #2 involves the meeting of the two vampires as well as some distinct changes to the plot.

Robocop: Road Trip #3RoboCop: Road Trip #3
Written by Rob Williams
Illustrated by Unai De Zarate
Colored by Alejandro Sanchez
Lettered by Marshall Dillon
Cover by Fabiano Neves
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: February 29, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

The operative word here is ‘Trip.’ Y’see, RoboCop is going insane. He’s having flashbacks to his childhood that quickly turn into nightmares, and he’s seeing old enemies in hallucinations and talking to them.

Unfortunately, he’s dealing with a few other problems while he’s losing his mind. America has fallen, OCP has taken over Old Detroit, he and a handful of fellow officers are on the lamb, trying to cross the Michigan border to get U.S. military aid, and, as RoboCop: Road Trip #3 opens, he’s sinking to the bottom of Lake Erie, about to be mauled by a large, robotic mountain lion.
