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...

Red Sonja: The Long Walk To Oblivion

The people of Meru are in terrible danger from an ancient evil, and there is only one person who can save them — the Hyrkanian warrior woman, Red Sonja! A lone Meruvian is sent to find Sonja and bring her back east — a treacherous trip that ends in a trap laid by Sonja’s old enemy, the evil wizard Kulan Gath in Red Sonja #0! It’s the adventure set before the new hit series, in this extra-sized one-shot!

This book is a bit odd, because it’s supposed to be the prelude to Issue 0 of the new Red Sonja ongoing.

As you can see below, the page to the left is the end of Long Journey and the one on the right is the end of issue #0.  I call this book odd because Issue 0 came out in December and this book is coming out in May...

The Greatest Adventure #1

In ancient days, Jason gathered the greatest heroes of his age and set out on the ultimate sea voyage. Now, in Tarzan’s era, Jason Gridley does the same. The greatest heroes of the Edgar Rice Burroughs universe come together as the crew of the good ship Venture, with none other than Tarzan as their captain. It’s a race this time, against a battleship of dark hearted villains, and the fate of many worlds hangs in the balance.

I don’t know if I am the best to review this because my last review was on Dynamite’s book Sovereigns where they were putting together all the old Gold Key characters like Turok and Magnus.  This book is the same but this time it was more with all the Edgar Rice Burroughs characters...

Okay I did get a tad confused when I first opened this book.  Even though it said Dynamite on the cover I thought this was a Valiant book because well it has Solar, Mangus, Dr...
