Spy Seal #1

Story / Art / Cover: Rich Tommaso

“THE CORTEN-STEEL PHOENIX,” Part One Journey into the thrilling world of international espionage as one of Britain’s most covert MI-6 divisions, The Nest, recruits a brand-new secret agent to their team: SPY SEAL! An exciting new comic series—reminiscent of The Adventures of Tintin and Usagi Yojimbo—and created by SHE WOLF author, RICH TOMMASO.

When looking up some details about this comic I found out something interesting about it.  Apparently the creator had made this character when he was 13 and his fans encouraged him to make comics based on the character.

The major highlight of this book is the art.  The creator has such a clean and fun cartoony style that fights well with the anamorphic spy action going on.

Also, it’s very much a more old ...

Elsewhere #1

Story: Jay Faerber
Art / Cover: Ron Riley, Sumeyye Kesgin

COPPERHEAD WRITER JAY FAERBER TEAMS WITH RISING STAR SUMEYYE KESGIN TO UNVEIL ELSEWHERE: THE FANTASTIC STORY OF WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO AMELIA EARHART! Mysteriously transported to a strange new world filled with flying beasts and alien civilizations, Amelia desperately struggles to return home. Along the way, she forges alliances and makes enemies as she goes from aviator to freedom fighter in a rebellion against a merciless warlord!

Funny note, I actually bought this comic before it was given to me to review.  When I have a light comic week (when not a lot of my regular books haven’t come out) I like to check out what new is out and give it a try.

I saw Elsewhere, saw Jay Faerber’s name and Amelia Earhart on the cover and I was...

Centipede #1

Writer: Max Bemis
Art: Eoin Marron

Based on the classic Atari game! When a terrifying creature from beyond the stars attacks his planet, Dale’s journey begins. But he is not out to save his world. It is already too late for that. As the lone survivor, the only thing he wants is revenge!

Writer Max Bemis (Worst X-Man Ever, Foolkiller) and artist Eoin Marron (Sons of Anarchy Redwood Original) bring you a tale of survival and vengeance like you’ve never seen before.

Centipede is a part of Dynamites current line of comics based on old Atari games.  Their first one, Swordquest, I reviewed the first issue and found it interesting how they tackled the plot for that game.

Now for Centipede I will admit I always assumed it was a sci-fi plot to the game...

Writer: Fred Van Lente
Art: Bob Q

Another challenge for THE GREEN HORNET, his aide KATO, and their rolling arsenal, THE BLACK BEAUTY! On police records a wanted criminal, THE GREEN HORNET is really Britt Reid, owner/publisher of The Daily Sentinel. Reid and Kato have traveled to Central City to participate in the futuristic World’s Fair, to get the skinny on the “Newspaper of Tomorrow,” a device capable of predicting headlines before events happen! But isn’t that a dangerous power for the press to wield… and say, who’s that blue-suited skulker in the shadows?

Dynamite has a pretty healthy list of older licensed characters like the Lone Ranger, the Green Hornet, Bettie Page, Flash Gordon, ect, ect...

Swordquest #1

Art: Ghostwriter X

The Atari Age returns to comics with the most unexpected story of the year: SwordQuest! In 1984, Peter Case was on his way to being crowned champion of SwordQuest, set to win the last of four contests and lay claim to a golden sword worth over $50,000! But when the game was discontinued, Peter found himself without a game to finish. Now, over thirty years later, Peter’s stuck in a different kind of game entirely — the game of life, and he’s losing fast...
