RECOMMENDED READING: JUSTICE INC. COLLECTED EDITION...
This image is getting to be a familiar sight on CRIVENS!,
but hey - what a belter, right? I only bought the first issue of the
regular 2015 DYNAMITE comicbook because of ALEX ROSS's
'homage' to JOE KUBERT's original 1975 DC COMICS cover,
but I recently acquired the collected edition of the six-part series
and it was a nice little read. I felt I'd just picked up from where
I'd left off back in the '70s when I was a teenager.
There's a couple of instances where the letterer has skipped
a word, which requires re-reading to catch the meaning, and the
art has some minor problems where cars (very nicely rendered)
and people aren't always proportionate size-wise, but all-in-all, if
you're a fan of pulp heroes in general and The AVENGER in
particular, then you'll enjoy this softcover volume.
Check out your local comicbook store, where you're sure
to find a copy of this book sitting on the shelves. Remember
to pay for it before you leave though, as it's always embarrassing
being rugby-tackled on your way out the door when you've for-
gotten to hand over your cash. I wonder how long it'll be 'til
HOLLYWOOD sees the potential in this property for a
big-budget movie? We'll see.
Incidentally, I'd put a clear protective cover on the book
not long before scanning, which slightly reflects the scanner's
light. Hopefully, it doesn't impair your visual enjoyment, but
I wasn't going to risk damaging the book by taking it off and
putting it on again. (I knew you'd understand.)
