I hate Dynamite Comics for one very simple reason. They publish comics with outstanding covers and often bleh interiors. There have been exceptions for sure, such as the last King Features effort, but once again I find myself lusting after a gaggle of comics I sadly fear will disappoint.
That said, I will be getting the debut issues of each of the comics above if only for the great Darwyn Cooke covers. For more see this. The King Features characters, especially The Phantom are among my all-time favorites in the genre and I hope (against hope) that these comics are entertaining in their own right. With a black Phantom, an Arboria-based Jungle Jim, and a time-traveling Valiant, they will be different for certain.
The scheme is for there to be five four-issue limited runs which will fuse into one larger story in the late spring or early summer. Certainly sounds ambitious enough.
But I do know I'll be getting them. Sigh..I hate Dynamite Comics! I hope I love these though.
