Cover by Joe Jusko
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: February 1, 2012
Price $3.99

One of my favorite independent comic publishers in recent years has been Dynamite Entertainment. They have not disappointed me with any of their titles, so I decided to check out Warriors of Mars #1 to see what it was about.

The story is about a man from Earth named Gullivar Jones who is an officer in the Navy from New York City. Jones, wishing that he didn’t have to live in the corrupt world he lives in, is transported to Mars. When he first arrives he meets local townsman from the city of Seth who then tell him to meet the king. While meeting the king, the city comes under attack in which the king’s daughter falls into a canal of water and Jones rescues her winning favor with the king.

Cover by Phil Hester
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: January 25, 2012
Cover Price: $4.99

When it comes to comics relaunches can be hit or miss, but a few years ago when Dynamite Entertainment released their new Green Hornet series I started reading it and instantly fell in love with it. Green Hornet Annual #2 is a great annual one-shot story that not only gets readers caught up on what has been going on, but it’s a great jumping-on point for new readers.

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: December 21, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

If I had to pick one word to describe The Green Hornet #20, it would be-charming. It’s not too often a comic actually makes you feel better after you’ve read it, but this one does just that.

Writer Ande Parks serves up two stories in one issue here. A tale of the original Green Hornet & Kato and one of the modern day Green Hornet & Kato. Both fighting the same villain, but in very different ways.

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: December 7th, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

Every 5 to 7 years World Events Productions reboots Voltron for a new generation. And every 5 to 7 years I get really excited and then I get extremely let down. Well, not this time! Voltron #1 is the fresh take on the property that fans have been waiting for!

Writer Brandon Thomas writes a story that both stays true to the original concept, spirit, and execution of the classic Voltron story, yet throws in enough twists and turns to keep it fresh and very accessible to new readers.

Dynamite Entertainment: Vampirella #9Vampirella #9
Written by Eric Trautmann
Art by Fabiano Neves
Letters by Marshall Dillon
Colors by Marchelo Maiolo
Covers by Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic, Paul Renaud, Fabiano Neves, Ale Garza
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: August 31, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

First off, let me be honest. I’m not a consistent reader of this character, but I used to be. I was happy to be able to read and review Vampirella #9 since it used to be one of my favorite comics. Over the years, Vampirella has had major upheavals to her origin story, so much so that it got a bit confusing at times. Eric Trautmann has been very mysterious about his version until this book. I got a few glimpses but no detailed information which, truthfully, is intriguing. Fabiano Neves brings a starker image of Vampirella than many artists have in the past…quite a few have given her a more bimbo-like appearance, but I was happy to see her dressed to kick ass, not for a lingerie shoot.

Letters by Marshall Dillon & James Dashiell
BOOM! Studios
Price: $16.99
Release Date: April 14, 2010

When I first heard that there was going to be a book where Edgar Allan Poe was going to help his policeman brother solve crimes, I was on board. I really enjoyed this exploration of the invention of detectives and detective stories through the eyes of the original inventor of the genre.

The story follows Edgar Allan Poe, who is dealing with his wife’s passing, and his brother William, the cop who is having trouble solving the murders of local citizens. While Edgar is with William at one of the crime scenes, he points out clues to the murderer, so William realizes he could use Edgar’s skills to help him solve the question of who the killer is. Of course being a story involving the Poe family there is a supernatural twist to the tale.

Cover by Kristian Donaldson
BOOM! Studios
Cover price: $14.99; Available now

I have to admit to a bit of a bias on this, as we here from Geeks of Doom (me specifically) are quoted on the back of the collection for 2 Guns, and it’s the first time that’s ever happened to me, so I would give anything a good review, so long as they quoted me on the book because I am a shallow, shallow man. So, my review of the book can be summed up by that quote shining on the back of the book, “…fun and exciting …This is a great crime story that is worth checking out.” See, my job is done right there. But seriously, I would recommend this book to fans of crime or heist stories or those just looking for a story outside of the superhero mainstream.
