New Turok, Magnus, Solar And Doctor Spektor Comics Coming From Dynamite In 2014 [NYCC 2013]

Dynamite Gold Key Books
Dynamite

A common set of questions at every Valiant Comics panel since Dark Horse wrapped their stint on the properties has been about what's up with a group of characters originally published by Gold Key but later licensed by Valiant in the 1990s: Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, Solar: Man of the Atom and Magnus: Robot Fighter.

Those questions can be put to bed now, as Dynamite Entertainment, not Valiant, has announced a new line of comics via a license with Dreamworks Classics. Also part of the deal is Doctor Spektor, an "occult detective" character who hasn't been seen since a Gold Key run in the mid '70s aside from a series of reprints from Dark Horse.

Ask Chris #157: Temporary Misinformation

AskChrisNew

Q: Is there a creator or character you initially disliked before later becoming a fan? If so, what turned it around? -- @MASolko

A: If you've read this column before -- or, let's be honest here, if you've even just kind of glanced at it before clicking on something else -- you're probably already aware that I'm a person with some pretty strong opinions that I form quickly and then stand by against all arguments to the contrary. This is obviously the best way to have feelings, but I'll admit that my rush to judgment has occasionally led me to be...

...temporarily misinformed.

New ‘Action Comics’ Writer Greg Pak: ‘Superman’s Not A Monolith – He’s A Hero In Motion’ [Interview]

Pakseid

With the recent launch of Batman/Superman and a trio of "Villain Month" issues, you'd think that one man would have enough of writing Superman. As it turns out, however, Greg Pak has a dire need that can only be sated by an ongoing series. That all-consuming hunger to tell Superman stories is (presumably) why he and artist Aaron Kuder are taking over Action Comics starting with November's issue #25.

We spoke to Pak to find out more about his influences for the series, whether it's difficult to juggle two Superman stories set at different times, and, perhaps most importantly, what his plans are for Terra-Man.

12 Very Important Things About ‘Batman/Superman’ #1 [Spoilers]

Batman Superman

A very enormous Superman movie opened recently, and the Man of Steel's publisher DC Comics is availing itself of the occasion to launch some new projects designed not just to entertain its existing readership but to welcome Man of Steel viewers intrigued by what they’ve seen on screen. We already discussed the first issue of Superman Unchained, the new series by DC superstars Scott Snyder and Jim Lee, and this week saw the debut of Batman/Superman, billed as the story of the first meeting of the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. The book is written by recent DC recruit Greg Pak, a ComicsAlliance favorite for his work on Marvel books like Planet Hulk and Hercules, and artist Jae Lee, the former Dark Tower illustrator and popular cover artist who raised his game immensely with the visually stunning contributions to the controversial Before Watchmen project.

As was the case with Superman Unchained, the pairing of Lee and Pak has drawn some lapsed DC readers back to see what’s become of the World's Finest since their New 52 makeovers. It is mainly from the perspective of that New 52 n00b that we contemplated this auspicious new issue and noted the following Very Important Things.
