Queen Sonja and Damsels look pretty good.

Posted by DonFelipe

The Green Hornet cover uses a nice combination of bright color. I like the contrast between the green and the red/yellow. The funniest thing is the hat "not" burning in flames.

Looking forward to reading everything.

Damsels and Dejah Thoris!

Damsels! <3

I was hoping the spin-off would be solicited but I have no idea what month that starts, just that it's 2013

Dynamite continues to publish some of the best pulp comics in the industry. The Spider and The Shadow are always amazing comics to read. My reading history with both characters were pretty minimal, but both these titles have engaged me right off the bat.

I always enjoy Eric Trautmann work on Red Sonja. It's such a great series and well deserved of more attention.

I love Francavilla's covers

I haven't read any of Dynamite's Comics yet but some of them do have my interest. The Spider is one series that I will want to read. Maybe I'll check out Vampirella and the Red Sonja books. The Shadow and Green Hornet books are maybes for me.

Paul Renaud is absolutely amazing! I bet issues sell simply on his covers alone!
