We’re in the home stretch of the biggest superhero launch of the year as Dynamite continues to proudly present Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet! The dark forces that took the life of the original Green Hornet now set their sights on young Britt Reid Jr as he takes up his father's war on crime. With the help of the Kato family, Britt begins to grow into his role as hero. But a larger, more sinister game is afoot, one that could cost our new Green Hornet not only his life, but the lives of everyone in Century City. From the unproduced screenplay by fan-favorite Kevin Smith, featuring the careful hand of Phil Hester and artist Jonathan Lau! And check out the strong line-up of all-star covers!

      

         

     

BULLET TO THE HEAD #2

32 pages FC  •  $3.99  •  MATURE
Written by MATZ
Art and cover by COLIN WILSON


Senator Sterling is dead - his corpse found with that of an underage hooker. But why the cover-up? That’s the question being asked not only by two of New York’s Finest... but by the killers themselves. Bullet to the Head, a crime noir tale of violence and revenge from writer Matz (Killer) and artist Colin Wilson (Ed Brubaker’s Point Blank), continues from Dynamite!

Praise for BULLET TO THE HEAD #1

“Wilson is a fantastic artist.... He does a great job with different-looking people - everyone is realistic and lived-in, which is tough to do... his layouts are very nice, as he packs the pages with visual information. If you've never seen a Wilson comic, pick this up and check it out!” – comicbookresources.com

“Matz's script really brings you in and moves you along... Wilson's art is clean and sharp, yet gritty enough around the edges for that crime drama feel. 5 stars (out of 5) ” – projectfanboy.com

This is by far my favorite non-Garth Ennis  [Dynamite Entertainment] property....  You should pick up a copy at your LCS early.”– ifanboy.com

THE COMPLETE ALICE IN WONDERLAND HARDCOVER

184 pages FC  • $24.99  •  All Ages

Written by LEWIS CAROLL
Adapted by LEAH MOORE & JOHN REPPION
Art by ÉRICA AWANO
Cover by JOHN CASSADAY

Take one politely stubborn and opinionated young girl. Add an overactive imagination. Shake in a heavy mix of puzzling and bizarre guides. Reduce all morals and lessons to the nonsensical degree and send it all on a journey to nowhere….

These are the ingredients that Lewis Carroll combined to create a fairy tale unlike any other.  Dynamite Entertainment is proud to present for all ages The Complete Alice In Wonderland, the most  vivid adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s genre bursting tales of young Alice and her adventures in Wonderland.  It contains Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass and the LOST chapter (from Looking Glass) "The Wasp in a Wig!”

“By adapting Carroll’s work so faithfully, writers Leah Moore and John Reppion remind everyone that there is a reason the title of his novel was not just ‘Wonderland.’ In their hands, readers can’t help but realize that Alice is a remarkable creation.” –  Philadelphia Daily News

“This is a wonderful re-imagining of a classic tale.” – Comic Book Resources

“Carroll’s wildly imaginative story rightfully explodes onto the page of a comic. Of course, it helps that artist Érica Awano and colorist PC Siqueira are easily up to the task; the work is a glorious mash-up of westernized manga and pastels, giving this book the unique visual look it demands.” – Comic Book Waiting Room

“They have instilled in me a desire to understand the original as well as continue to read this version. As far as adaptations are concerned, I can think of few higher compliments.” – Broken Frontier
