Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #5

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #5 is the last issue of this beautifully snarky mini-series from Dynamite. There’s a little bit of everything here. Ray guns, retaliation, retribution, resurrection, re-killing, redemption, and a bunch of weird creatures.

Actually, that’s all I’m going to give you. If you weren’t already convinced by my last four issues worth of reviews, giving you more details won’t change your mind now. In fact, you don’t even get another random clickbait link, so there. Ryan Browne and Pete Woods have kept me entertained for the last five months, I have no doubt they will do the same for you.

Last month I threatened to give this issue only a single star just for ending, but honestly I can’t give it less than the 4 out of 5 stars that it has been sitting at ...

The Shadow #2 (2017)

When I wrote my review of The Shadow #1, I mentioned what a big fan I was of old time radio (OTR) shows in general, and The Shadow specifically. Dynamite’s newest series of The Shadow has so far only shown us the titular character in flashbacks and news reports. Issue #2 continues that, as we see The Shadow launch an assault on a mansion in upstate New York that ends in the entire building burning to the ground killing everyone inside.

The scene then perfectly transitions to a newscast covering the fallout of the fire, and then to the hospital room of an amnesiac burn patient and Mary, the medical student who has been working with him (off the record) to recover his memory...

Grumpy Cat/Garfield #1+2

Writer: Mark Evanier
Art: Steve Uy

It’s the inevitable meeting of the sourpusses! Garfield, the reigning cynical cat of newspapers and TV crosses paths with Grumpy Cat, the internet sensation whose scowl endeared herself to the world. Who’s the most sarcastic? Well, he likes lasagna and not much else…and she doesn’t even like lasagna. Can these two inhabit the same comic book mini-series, let alone the same planet? You’ll find out in a trio of issues written by Mark Evanier and illustrated by Steve Uy. We’d say it’s the cat’s meow but neither of these cats meows.

I’m sorry but it was hard to get into these books.  I am suffering a bit from fatigue of licensed properties moving into comics...

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #4

Welcome back to this sweet, sweet garbage (no really, the story opens in a dump). When we last left our heroes(?) sidekicks(?) villains(?) Sparky had inadvertently killed his mentor Big Blue, and is now an infantile jibbering idiot; an insane Tim is wearing an oven mitt duct taped to his face, a la Phantom of the Opera, to hide the rainbow scar left from his confrontation with Rainbow Boy; and Captain Battle Jr. has just arrived and doesn’t know what to think about all this.

Meanwhile, in the Libertyville General Hospital, the Mayor sits at the side of Rainbow Boy, who managed to survive Tim’s attack. This touching scene is then interrupted by the Mayor’s soon-to-be ex-wife, who confronts him about his Mayor being confronted about his affair.

Back in the junkyard, Captain Battle (Sr...
