Comics Review: "ELVIRA Meets H.P. Lovecraft Volume 1 #1" Calls You to Cthulhu

ELVIRA MEETS H.P. LOVECRAFT VOLUME 1 #1
DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT

STORY: David Avallone
ART: Kewber Baal
COLORS: Walter Pereya
LETTERS: Taylor Esposito
EDITOR: Joseph Rybandt
COVER: Dave Acosta with Walter Pereyra
VARIANT COVER ARTIST: Robert Hack
32pp, Color, $3.99 U.S. (February 2024)

Rated Teen+

Chapter One: “The Collect Call of Cthulhu”

In 1981, actress and model Cassandra Peterson created the “horror hostess character,” known as “Elvira.”  Elvira gradually grew in popularity and eventually became a brand name.  As Elvira, Peterson endorsed many products and became a pitch-woman, appearing in numerous television commercials throughout the 1980s.

Elvira also appeared in comic books, beginning in 1986 with the short-lived series from DC Comics, Elvira's House of Mystery.  In 2018, Elvira returned to comic books via Dynamite Entertainment.  Elvira's latest comic book series is Elvira Meets H.P. Lovecraft Volume 1.  The series is written by David Avallone; drawn by Kewber Baal; colored by Walter Pereyra; and lettered by Taylor Esposito.

Elvira Meets H.P. Lovecraft Volume 1 #1 (“The Collect Call of Cthulhu”) opens with Elvira about to enjoy some dreamy boot-knocking when she is mystically cock-blocked.  Infamous horror and fantasy author, H.P. Lovecraft, has returned from his sweet hereafter, the Abyss.  It seems that one of the “Elder Gods,” the Lord of the Abyss has a mission for Howard Phillips Lovecraft.

He must find the last true copy of the ancient tome of dark magic, “the Necronomicon.”  Completing this task will free Lovecraft from his miserable eternity.  Lovecraft's first problem is that he needs Elvira to join him because she has a reputation in many mystical realms of being the one who turns back all manner of supernatural threats.  His second problem is that Elvira is not interested, even if it means the return of Cthulhu.

However, the threat may be bigger and more familiar than she realizes...

THE LOWDOWN:  Since July 2021, Dynamite Entertainment's marketing department has been providing me with PDF review copies of some of their titles.  One of them is Elvira Meets H.P. Lovecraft Volume 1 #1, one of many Dynamite/David Avallone Elvira comic books that I have read and enjoyed.

I really enjoyed writer David Avallone and artist Juan Samu's sexy, ghostly romp, Elvira Meets Vincent Price, a five-issue miniseries published in 2021.  Avallone offers another tasty... coupling, this time pairing the Mistress of the Dark with a ghost of American arts and culture who is not nearly as delightful as Vincent Price, the renowned fantasy and horror author, H.P. Lovecraft.  Avallone sprinkles the script for this first issue with references to Lovecraft's reputation, including a sly, near slip of the tongue regarding Lovecraft's racism and bigotry.  Whereas Elvira Meets Vincent Price reads like a comic book version of a Bob Hope romp, however, Elvira Meets Vincent Price seems to be dark and maybe scarier.  At least, that is my take on it this early in the series.

Artist Kewber Baal proved to an excellent match for Avallone's humor in the most recent Elvira comic book miniseries, Elvira in Monsterland.  Here, Baal turns Avallone script into a swell comedy, but his graphical storytelling surrounds the repartee with a swirling mass of darkness and horror comic book energy.  Walter Pereyra's colors convey this interplay of comedy and scary that keep the story moving.

I'm being conservative with my grade for this first issue of Elvira Meets H.P. Lovecraft, but I am very excited about it.  I expect great things, and dear readers, I expect you to read Elvira Meets H.P. Lovecraft #1.

I READS YOU RECOMMENDS:  Fans of Elvira and of David Avallone's Elvira comic books will want to read Elvira Meets H.P. Lovecraft Volume 1.

Comics Review: "LILO & STITCH Volume 1 #1" Brings Back a Girl and Her Alien Dog

LILO & STITCH VOL. 1 #1
DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT

STORY: Greg Pak
ART: Giulia Giacomino
COLORS: Giulia Giacomino
LETTERS: Jeff Eckleberry
EDITOR: Nate Cosby
COVER: Joshua Middleton
VARIANT COVER ARTISTS: David Nakayama; Jennifer Meyer; Craig Rousseau; Joshua Middleton
32pp, Color, $3.99 U.S. (January 2024)

Rated “All Ages”

Lilo & Stitch is a 2002 animated science fiction and action-comedy film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation.  The film's story revolves around an orphaned Hawaiian girl named Lilo Pelekai, and an extraterrestrial creature, “Experiment 626.”  Lilo adopts the alien as her “dog” and renames him “Stitch.”  After some trials and tribulations, the two bond, and Stitch uses his powers to keep his “ohana” or extended family (which includes Lilo's older sister, Nani), together.

Dynamite Entertainment has been producing licensed comic books based on Disney characters and IP for over a year.  The latest is Lilo & Stitch Volume 1.  It is written by Greg Pak; drawn and colored by Giulia Giacomino; and lettered Jeff Eckleberry.  The series continues the adventures of the title characters as they face new alien threats.

Lilo & Stitch Volume 1 #1 opens on Planet Turo at the Galaxy Defense Industries Sub-Facility 12B, which is in the midst of a break-in.  It seems that someone is searching for the records of Dr. Jumba Jookiba and his “Experiment 626,” which was designed to break everything it touches.

Meanwhile, on Earth, specifically the island of Kaua'i, Hawaii, Lilo, Stitch, Dr. Jumba, and alien Agent Pleakley are enjoying some fun as only they can.  Their activities lead to words of wisdom from Nani and her boyfriend, David Kawena.  It's all about “ohana” (family) and “kuleana” (responsibilities).  The family time, however, is interrupted by the arrival of robots in service of the “Cluster Sovereign.”  They want Stitch, but can they find him after he finds the perfect place in which to blend?

THE LOWDOWN:  Since July 2021, Dynamite Entertainment's marketing department has been providing me with PDF review copies of some of their titles.  Lilo & Stitch Volume 1, Issue #1 is the latest, and is also the first Lilo & Stitch comic book that I have read.

It's been almost two decades since I last saw the film, Lilo & Stitch.  I don't remember much about it, other than a few characters and that I really liked it.  I'm curious about the upcoming live-action version of Lilo & Stitch being produced by Walt Disney Pictures.

This Lilo & Stitch comic book is nice, but it isn't directed at my demographic.  This is a children's comic book, and that's a good thing.  Writer Greg Pak has fashioned a gentle adventure that promises to pick up the pace in the second issue.  I have to admit to being curious about what comes next.  Artist Giulia Giacomino captures the Disney animated aesthetic with her illustrations and colors, and it is also kids' comics friendly.

So, if Lilo & Stitch is your thing, Lilo & Stitch Volume 1 #1 is worth a buy, especially if you want to give it to a young reader.

I READS YOU RECOMMENDS:  Fans of Dynamite Entertainment's Disney comic book series will want to read Lilo & Stitch Volume 1.

Comics Review: "FIRE AND ICE VOLUME 1 #2" is a Savage Tale

FIRE AND ICE VOLUME 1 #2
DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT

STORY: Bill Willingham
ART: Leonardo Manco
COLORS: Leonardo Manco
LETTERS: Jeff Eckleberry
EDITOR: Matt Idelson
COVER: Joseph Michael Linsner
VARIANT COVER ARTISTS: Leonardo Manco; Gary Frank
32pp, Color, $3.99 U.S. (December 2023)

Rated Teen+

Fire and Ice created by Ralph Bakshi and Frank Frazetta

Chapter II: “The Price of Power”

Fire and Ice is an animated epic, dark fantasy, adventure film directed by Ralph Bakshi.  The film is the result of a collaboration between Bakshi and the legendary fantasy painter, Frank Frazetta, with the film's screenplay being written by veteran comic book writers, Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway.

In 2022, Dynamite Entertainment announced that it had gained the license to produce a comic book series set in the world of Fire and Ice.  The series would act as a prequel to the film.  Fire and Ice the comic book is written by Bill Willingham; drawn and colored by Leonardo Manco; and lettered by Jeff Eckleberry and Taylor Esposito.  War is coming, and it will rage between the realms of Ice and Fire.  Many tribes, cities, and nations will be caught in the middle, some fated to be ground into oblivion because of it.  Who will be the saviors and heroes?

As Fire and Ice Volume 1 #2 (“The Price of Power”) opens, the legendary masked warrior, Darkwolf, battle, Otwa the giant to the death.  What if, however, death is not necessarily easy to come by.

Meanwhile, Juliana, Queen of the Icelands discovers that her precious son, Kaledan, has been assassinated.  She does not know that her younger son, Nekron, murdered his brother in order to be the heir to the throne.  Now, Juliana is launching an all-out war on the Fire Kingdom and its allies, calling forth the Ice Lands' most depraved allies to do her bidding.

THE LOWDOWN:  Since July 2021, Dynamite Entertainment's marketing department has been providing me with PDF review copies of some of their titles.  One of them is Fire and Ice Volume 1 #2,  which is one of the few Frank Frazetta-related comic book I have read in a long time.

I have never seen Fire and Ice, except for a few minutes so long ago that I can't remember that time or what I saw.  I am a fan of the film's director, Ralph Bakshi, especially of his 1977 film, Wizards.  Like a lot of people, I also enjoy looking at Frank Frazetta's paintings.

I thought readers could enjoy Fire and Ice Volume 1 #1 without having seen the movie.  Reading the Wikipedia page on the film and reading Bill Willingham's engaging script was enough to make the first issue a joy to read.  I found myself a little more in the dark while reading this second issue, but I liked the Tolkien meets Frazetta vibe of the story.  So far, each chapter raises the stakes high enough to keep me interested.

Willingham's script works so well because it is in the hands of artist Leonardo Manco, who easily captures the prehistoric and savage splendor of the sword and sorcery genre to which Fire and Ice belongs, in both pencil and color.  This issue Manco captures the intrigue and especially the menagerie of monsters, beasts, and creatures that will serve the Ice Lands.  I found Manco's depiction of Juliana's gathering of invasion forces rather invigorating.  I can't wait for more.

Hey, dear readers, this is really good stuff. I'm an definitely coming back for more, and you should definitely come around at least for the first two issues.

I READS YOU RECOMMENDS:  Fans of Ralph Bakshi and Frank Frazetta will want to try the comic book, Fire and Ice Volume 1.

Comics Review: "ALICE COOPER Volume 2 #2" is for Those About to Rock

ALICE COOPER VOLUME 2 #2
DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT

STORY: Rodney Barnes
ART: Edu Menna
COLORS: Adriano Lucas
LETTERS: Troy Peteri
EDITOR: Joseph Rybandt
COVER: Stuart Sayger
VARIANT COVER ARTISTS: Stuart Sayger; Andrew Mangum; Jae Lee
32pp, Color, $3.99 U.S. (November 2023)

Rated Teen+

Alice Cooper (born Vincent Damon Furnier) is an American rock singer, actor, and Grammy Award-nominated recording artist.  He is known for his outlandish stage shows which include fake blood, stage illusions, and pyrotechnics, to name a few elements.  Originally the name of his band, Furnier made “Alice Cooper” his legal name and embarked on a solo career in the mid-1970s.

Dynamite Entertainment has preciously featured Alice Cooper as a comic book character in Alice Cooper Volume 1 (2014-15).  Cooper returns to comic books in Alice Cooper Volume 2.  It is written by Rodney Barnes; drawn by Edu Menna; colored by Adriano Lucas; and lettered by Troy Peteri.  The series finds Alice Cooper in the middle of a promotional tour for his new album when he notices something decidedly odd about some of his new fans.  It's all part of Lucifer's plan to strike out at the rock star he hates/envies the most, Alice Cooper.

Alice Cooper Volume 2 #2 opens with Lucifer, Son of the Morning, revisiting his past.  Once he was creation's greatest musical performer, but God didn't like his jams.  Eventually, the cursed humans came along; Lucifer's music career faded; and that caused a rebellion...

Now, Lucifer has set his sights on Alice Cooper, who performs his hits night after night to ravenous crowds and thunderous applause.  But why does Lucifer believe that Cooper is the one standing between him and (don't call it) a comeback?  Enter the archangel Gabriel with a powerful musical instrument that will help Cooper clear away the devils of darkness.  The real showdown, however, will begin at a small venue where the blues are played.

THE LOWDOWN:  Since July 2021, Dynamite Entertainment's marketing department has been providing me with PDF review copies of some of their titles.  Alice Cooper Volume 2 #2 is the latest, and it is the second Alice Cooper comic book that I have ever read.

In my review of of Alice Cooper Volume 2 #1, I told you, dear readers, that I am not really a fan of Alice Cooper.  I said that it was not because I did not like Cooper; I do find him interesting.  By the time I discovered him, however, the legendary rock band, Kiss, was already providing me with my rock 'n' roll weirdness.

Now, I am a big fan of screenwriter, television writer-producer, and comic book author, Rodney Barnes.  He is a master of dark fantasy, horror, and science fiction, but he also has a deft touch with comedy.  I am having a kick reading a tale in which Lucifer is stupidly obsessed with Alice Cooper as the reason he, Lucifer, isn't at the top of the pop charts.  Barnes' concept is both hilarious and witty, and I am anxious to see where this goes.

Edu Menna's art and storytelling bring Barnes story to comic book life in a variety of moods and changes of style that give this story a surreal tone grounded in a kind of everyday reality.  The devilish surreal mixes with a kind of down-and-dirty reality.  Menna makes this series feel like more than just another dark fantasy comic book; he makes it feel like an event.

Adriano Lucas's colors make sure this series comes off as something a little bit more than just another trip into dark fantasy, and Troy Peteri's lettering conveys the overall sense of oddness that permeates the first two issues.  Alice Cooper Volume 2 has utterly surprised me, and I'm sure it will continue to delight.  Let this series surprise you, dear readers.

I READS YOU RECOMMENDS:  Fans of Alice Cooper and of the comic books of Rodney Barnes will want Alice Cooper Volume 2.
