Dynamite has sent over the last batch of solicitations and covers for their books shipping in August. This group is a bit more mixed as we start off with two animated TV series, one still going / one ended. Bob’s Burgers and Brickleberry. Both are being done by the shows creators.
Then we move on to two collections of heroes. Kings Quest pulls together Mandrake The Magician, Flash Gordon, The Phantom, Prince Valiant and more while the Gold Key Alliance dives into the classic comic characters of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, Magnus: Robot Fighter, Solar Man of the Atom and more.
And then, at the bottom but definitely not last or least, the collected edition of Dragonsbane from Kirby:Genesis. For fans of Jack Kirby, this was another take on the Norse pantheon of gods featuring Sigurd, Balduur, Honir and Heimdall.
