A ruthless crime lord is on the rise. The clock is ticking on a politician's life.

It's the return of Ronald Jackson, one of the pulp-era Spider's most trusted associates!

Having returned from Titan, Dejah reunites with her Grandfather and Father and finds that a Criminal Underworld has gotten a foothold in Helium led by the enigma "MORTUS." In order to discover Mortus true identity and bring down his organization, Dejah and a notorious Weapons Master assume different identities and infiltrate Barsoom's criminal underworld where they encounter assassins, gangsters, and a vile world of corruption and deceit that Dejah never knew existed.
Fabiano Neves

Red Sonja is keeping busy as usual.

RED SONJA: ATLANTIS RISES #3

Price: $3.99 Covers: Lucio Parrillo  Writer: Luke Lieberman Artist: Max Dunbar
Fighting fire with fire. To overcome the ancient evil that threatens Hyborea Red Sonja must avail herself of an older evil from the heart of the Nameless Isle. Meanwhile, King Kazel has continued his conquest, but when the victorious king returns to Atlantis, he may find Doom awaits him.

The last first look is for the Lone Ranger.

THE LONE RANGER: SNAKE OF IRON #4

The Masked Man comes to Tonto's aide. But have the faithful companions found one another only to die together? Dozens of innocents may died in a bloody massacre unless the legend of the Spirit Horse can come to life to bring peace to the prairies.

Basically, the Lone Ranger will fight his way through the blizzard along with a troop of cavalry to rescue Tonto and the trainload of folks.

When did Dixon start writing Lone Ranger? Looks like another series for my trade waiting list.

I don't dig Ale Garza' artwork at all.

The Spider is a great series, the other series are great as well.

Evey single one of these titles are great. The Vampirella and Red Sonja covers rock.

Posted by Katie24

The Spider is a really, really great comic and that Francesco Francavilla cover is sure puuurdy.

Can't wait. Really enjoying Dynamite's work on Vampirella and Dejah Thoris. Red Sonja has always been great under them. Honestly, Dynamite has slowly turned into my favorite non DC/Marvel publisher over the past few years since they've acquired other properties (namely Chaos! Comics). Too bad they didn't get Lady Death - although I really enjoy her new series.

I did like the Red Sonja cover art. I don't know why I feel like I've seen the Vampirella cover art before somewhere. I'll definitely pick up the Red Sonja comic. I'm not sure about the Vampirella because I am not enjoying Vampirella vs Dracula series. I was hoping for more Jennifer Blood and Ninjettes.

Does anyone actually buy Vampirella, Red Sonja and Deja Thoris for the plot?

This preview makes me think Dynamite is transitioning into soft core comics....

Posted by rasx

Those Paul Renaud covers look nice.

Posted by RoboShark

Admitted this the other day on here....I want Vampirella.

It is sad how misogynistic these covers are. I like Dynamite comics a great deal, but these covers are a sad statement of commercialism and pleading to the lust of young men, or old men, either way. Would it be that story content and non soft core porn covers and art work isn't enough? What a cheap trick this is. The second covers of both Vampirella and Mars are straight out of a playboy or some such. It is cheap, unclassy, inappropriate and most of all, it belittles the Name Brand of Dynamite. This was a poor editorial decision. I bought "Prophecy" this past month and i had to hide the cover from my wife and daughter because I was embarrassed by it. I would love to be the EIC for Dynamite and change what is a promising opportunity to expand and grow and become a major player, maybe even getting more than one title in the top fifty selling titles according to Diamond. It is decisions like this that has kept Dynamite from growing. These characters are beloved and don't need a pornographic cover to sell them. I just think of the wasted potential.

Yes please preach on! Because we all love to hear the same thing every time Red Sonja, Vampirella, and Dejah Thoris comics get previewed on this site. Perhaps Comicvine shouldn't preview these comics at all because they offend your's and a lot of other people on this sites delicate sensibilities.

Agreed, particularly his Vampirella cover.

I am SO glad that the Spider's run has been extended. The first storyline has been amazing.
