Sheena/Tarzan crossover: That's right, Dynamite acquired the right to Sheena Queen of the Jungle and is kick off her arrival by teaming her up with Tarzan Lord of the Jungle!!! I have to admit, I'm SUPER surprised that this team-up didn't take place years ago, but I think it's gonna be super fun to read. And, you guys know that I can't mention Tarzan without including a YouTube video of one of my favorite cartoons ever. Filmation's 1980's Tarzan cartoon! Enjoy:
JAMES BOND!!!! Wow, HOW long did we have to wait for this? Too long, in my opinion! Dynamite announced that they had acquired the license awhile ago, but had been playing coy for quite some time about when the book would launch and what the creative team would be. Well, the wait is over and the new Bond comic will be brought to us by writer Warren Ellis and artist Jason Masters. While you all know I'm not the biggest Warren Ellis fan out there, I really think this book is going to be a home run. You can read a great interview with Dynamite Senior Editor Joe Rybandt right here.
Back to the Future: An honest to God, movie related, Back to the Future comic book! What's even better? It's co-written by Back to the Future co-creator (and no stranger to comics himself) Bob Gale and Erik Burnham, with art by Dan Schoening!!! I don't think there's anything you could want more from a Back to the Future comic.
OK, I'm running outta steam with this post. There's a lot of :honorable mentions" that I wanted to make, but you'll see them later in the year (and next year) as they come closer. Let's get to the money shot:
ROM/The Micronauts: NOBODY saw this coming. NOBODY. Not even me. About 2 second after it was announced at the Hasbro panel, this image hit the internet:
-As much as for Chris, this is a dream come true for me as well. I've always been a huge fan of both properties, and to get the chance to sell these books is just incredible. I truly never thought that it would happen.
So, consider this a preview of the things to come here. I'll be covering/reviewing/promoting all of these things, and many more, in the months to come. You think you've seen electrifying before? You ain't seen nothin' yet, baby!!!!!!
