As I mentioned in my James Bond: Origin Vol. 2 HC review, I wasn’t really a James Bond fan. Reading the James Bond comics of Dynamite Entertainment, however, changed that. James Bond #6 is another great issue that will make you glad 007 is in comic books.

As a kid, I loved watching the Green Hornet and Kato on TV. In fact, I liked “The Green Hornet” even more than the “Batman” TV series, and was thrilled when they had a crossover.

But Green Hornet #1 by writer Scott Lobdell (Flash Forward, Uncanny X-Men) and artist Anthony Marques (Vampirella, Red Sonja) is the first time I’m reading a Green Hornet comic book. Spoilers ahead.

Before Dynamite Entertainment, I didn’t know Bettie Page. An American model whose heyday in the 50s immortalized her as the Queen of Pinups, the real-life Bettie Page was a remarkable woman who became an iconic figure in pop culture.

Which is why I’m happy to meet Bettie through Karla Pacheco’s (Spider-Woman) new series, which is beautifully illustrated by Vincenzo Federici (Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep). Spoilers ahead.
