Grumpy Cat/Garfield #1

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.

Most of the time, I’m interested to see what new antics that everyone’s favorite lasagna eating cat is up to next. While I wasn’t disinterested, I wasn’t really all that concerned with the other half of this new crossover...

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #3

So, let’s do a quick recap: thus far Dr. Baron von Science, Black Terror, and Blue Bolt have all been killed by Tim using a ray gun stolen from found in Dr. Baron von Science’s secret lab. Here’s the thing, though – they weren’t. The ray gun didn’t disintegrate them, it transported them to the very strange Dimension 42. How strange you ask? Black Terror has only been there a week, and he has “vomited in horror fifteen times”.

We begin issue #3 with a continuation of the snark between the “Narrator” and the “Editor.” As far as the actual story in concerned, we find Rainbow Boy in a darkened kitchen, wearing nothing but his rainbow helmet, rainbow briefs, and the key to the city, where he is confronted by Tim over that key...

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...

The Green Hornet ’66 Meets The Spirit #1

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...

Project Superpowers: Hero Killers #2

So at the end of the last issue, Sparky, Captain Battle Jr., and Tim witnessed the evil Dr. Baron von Physics murder Black Terror. They then disarmed Dr. Barron and were forced to shoot him with his own disintegration ray. The ray gun then disappeared, possibly stolen by a corrupt cop. That’s what happened. That’s what the boys told everyone, and they are sticking to that story. Big Blue doesn’t believe it, though, and WHAT REALLY HAPPENED WILL SHOCK YOU! Whatever it was, it all worked out in the end. The boys got the key to the city, and Captain Battle Jr. got a chocolate malt.

Not long after, the key is then given to Rainbow Boy (this hero of the moment thing seems to be a regular occurrence in Libertyville, USA)...
