The Story Continues
These stories aren’t beginning but they are continuing!
Grimm Fairy Tales #11 turns it’s attentions away from fairytales to tackle science fiction with this War of the Worlds inspired issue.
X-O Manowar #10 belongs to the long running Valiant universe. This standalone interlude featuring the armoured emperor of the planet Gorin might be a good stepping in point for anyone new to the character or universe. This might appeal to fans of Iron Man or cosmic comics.
The Greatest Adventure #8 continues the bizarre adventures of Edgar Rice Burrough’s heroes and heroines as they team up like the Avengers to battle Martians and dinosaurs. For fans of prehistoric monsters, aliens, Tarzan and John Carter from Mars.
James Bond: Kill Chain #6 is the latest offering in Dynamite’s range of James Bond comics. Can James Bond stop SMERSH and Operation Hooded Falcon? We’re betting he can.
George R.R. Martin’s A Clash of Kings #7 is the latest instalment in Dynamite’s comic adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire. For fans of the television series Game of Thrones who might not want to tackle Martin’s dense prose.
Turok #5 might sound familiar to 90s gamers. The Dinosaur Hunter is back in this series written by Chuck Wendi and Aubrey Sitterson. Expect dinosaurs and violence. And probably more dinosaurs.
Eternity #3 is a new instalment in a Valiant series that only started in November. Set in a realm beyond the limits of human perceptions and featuring a cover that looks like Groot with a flower for a head this is sure to be a surreal cosmic adventure.
Ninja-K #2 You probably didn’t know that MI-6 has a covert “Ninja Programme” but then that’s probably the point. Unfortunately for the ninja spies who’ve vowed to serve Queen and country, someone does know, and they’re after every last ninja, including hero Ninja-K. Think Bond but with ninjas.
