Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #1

Welcome thrill-seekers, to Libertyville, USA. If you are unfamiliar with Dynamite Entertainment’s Project Superpowers series, and its subsequent spin-offs, that ok. A good spinoff doesn’t rely on it’s source material too much. You don’t need to watch Cheers to enjoy Fraser. Smooth Willie Williams Jr., Mayor of Libertyville, catches you up on the important details in a short “expository seminar” which basically comes down to the fact that Libertyville has “too many $&@#(! Heroes”

When the full blown heroes are busy trying to get a piece of the spotlight, what hope does a sidekick have? That’s basically the story we have when Captain Battle Jr., Sparky, and Tim (you’ve heard of, Tim, haven’t you?) are the first on the scene when Dr...

Action Lab Dog of Wonder #7

WHO is this canine from the future? WHEN in the past has he taken Percy? WHAT is going on here?! It’s a story that could only be called…BARK TO THE FUTURE! And this is just Part One!

It’s funny that that last time I read this title, I was starting a new arc. Sadly, I lost track of it and never finished, but come back in just in time for the next. So, let’s see what’s going on with Action Lab Dog of Wonder in the seventh issue and the Bark to the Future arc.

During a puppy rescue mission, Action Lab is suddenly met by a time traveling, very Whovian parody dog named Toby. The pair travel back to 1792, when the League of Animals was formed, an event someone is trying to stop...

Groo: Fray of the Gods TPB

What happens when you put artist Sergio Aragonés and writer Mark Evanier together, then toss in some letters by Stan Sakai, and colour it with some Tom Luth? What you get is the longest running creative team around, and probably another wandering tale of Groo. In today’s case, it’s Groo: Fray of the Gods.

Fray of the Gods was originally announced by Dark Horse as a 12 issue limited series, with the first issue being advertised as such, and the preorders for the TPB collection of the first four issues being advertised as Volume 1. Somewhere the plan changed slightly, and the story concluded with issue #4.

The Comixology description of issue #4 starts:

“It’s the last issue of a four-issue Groo miniseries, and we all know what that leads to: the first issue (coming soon) of the next fou...
