Thread: The Owl #1 hits next Wednesday!

    Default The Owl #1 hits next Wednesday!

    Okay, so The Owl #1 hits shelves this upcoming Wednesday and I've got to express just how happy I am to see the Project Superpowers franchise relaunched after being dormant for far too long. I sincerely hope that everyone gives this title a shot and that it leads to a 3rd volume of the core Project Superpowers story, these golden age characters deserve to shine and this is going to be their best bet as a part of this established line, but only if DE sticks with it this time around.

    Default Woohoo!

    Yeah, I'm definitely excited for this. I asked my shop if they were getting it in and he said they were definitely getting it. I'm one of the first in the shop so I know I'll get my copy. I can't wait to get back into this world.

    Every cover I've seen excludes the Project Superpowers logo that all the other Project Superpowers related series sported, I'm wondering if Dynamite intends this to be a part of the #PulpX line of comics instead? Thoughts?

    I think that Project:Superpowers has been 'gone' long enough that they just decided it might be confusing to use the logo.

    Fear not, The Owl is Project Superpowers and not PulpX.

    Just finished it. Good read! It sets a few thong up and gives us some background with out hitting you over the head.

    Now if we can just get the Ghost, the Flame, The Face and the return of Black Terror

    This was better than I expected but it wasn't as good as the pulp books. The fighting was cool and the art was good, i will get issue 2

    Default Exciting Start to The Adventures of The Owl!!

    I really liked The Owl #1....

    GREAT START....to see The OWl as he was....in the 1940's.

    Good action sequence to get the present day story....started.

    Then, what many of us had hoped for.... the tie-in to PROJECT SUPERPOWERS. Hoo-ray!!
    There they were.... our heroes...The Black Terror, Target, The Flame, Mr. Face, ....ah...Daredevil.... Miss Masque, Green Lama...all tied together with THE OWL. (So, at least we know we're in the right Universe.)

    A nice comparison page...and some great action stuff.

    I enjoyed most of the book.

    Here's where I come up a little short on the book and can't call it "great".

    The "soft-art" on page 5 of the police officer started me worrying again about the "Dynamite art" that curses (my words) the DE books that I give up on. I was sorry to see it in some of the panels. (Deduct points.)

    [Same thing happened on MASKS ... most pronouced...on The Shadow (See: #2, page 6 and #3,page 3 ... and The Black Terror in issue #3.) I dropped MASKS after issue#3 because of the "soft-bad-art".] THE BLACK TERROR looked awful.

    Then, the story stretched crudulity, for me, to bring a new "OWL-GirL" into the first issue. Way-too-much of a chance of THAT happening. In issue #3 or #4....OK.... but not in issue #1. (Deduct points.)

    Am I going to get issue #2..?.... sure. But just a little disappointed in the things I was unhappy with.

    It could have been... and almost was.... a great REUNION.!!!

    I just hope the new Owl Girl won't turn into something trite, like being his granddaughter.

    Still, it was nice to get back into the PSP Universe. I am already upset that The Owl is only scheduled as a 4-issue limited series. Still, the first 4 issues of The Black Terror was also a limited series and then went on to be an ongoing book--and hopefully will be again some day.
