      So much of that stuff is so not appealing to me. (Will have to see what else they announce later.)

      Then again, what I am interested in probably doesn't typically sell as well with the general comic buying audience these days.

            I might read a James Bond 007 comic book by Warren Ellis, if I liked the artwork. We'll see.

            Out of this month's batch, definitely getting:
            Vampirella 1969
            Vampirella Vol. 2: God Save the Queen TP

            Waiting for trades:
            John Carter, Warlord of Mars
            Justice Inc: The Avenger
            The Shadow Vol. 2

              Ditto. How many times have I heard "Sorry, we stopped ordering that"? Between that and trying to find the specific cover variant I wanted of a particular title, it just seemed a lot easier in most cases to wait for the trade paperback.

                JUSTICE, INC.: THE AVENGER #6

                Written by Mark Waid, Christopher Sequeira, art by Ronilson Freire, cover by Francesco Francavilla

                Final issue! Betrayed by a former ally? Richard Benson and his Justice, Inc. team find themselves standing at the brink of a world war thanks to misplaced loyalties and a villain with a grudge that threatens to bury all of humanity!
                I know I wasn't all that thrilled with this title, but that is a surprise to me!

                At the moment I plan on getting:
                * MASKS 2 #8 (Final Issue, but we new it was an eight-issue run going in)
                * WILL EISNER'S THE SPIRIT #5

                will probably trade-wait The Shadow, and undecided on the new Bond series. (Also undecided if I'll finish out the run for The Avenger or not.)

                So, not too much for me (again).

                    Not really impressed with the choices. I enjoy Bond, but really don't like what Ellis did with PSP. I will have to wait before I buy in.

                    I guess I fall into that category of I buy what nobody else does. Outside of The Shadow, is Dynamite doing any pulp going forward?

                      Well, Will Eisner's The Spirit sort of falls into that area, being based on the old comics for the 1940s about a masked crimefighter (though with some revisions to characters since things like keeping Ebony as his stereotypical 1940s version wouldn't work in a modern-written story).

                        Oh, that's nothing new for DE. Just because they don't tell you from the get-go that it's going to be 4,5,6,8 or 12 issues, you know that doesn't mean it's going to run for 20 or 30-odd issues. It's more like, "Here's a new series, we'll get in at least one story arc, and see how it goes sales-wise. If you guys like it enough to buy lots of copies, maybe we'll keep it going for another arc or two or three". They may even have dropped the word "ongoing" at one point or another, but you know that's just optimistic thinking. When they say nothing about how many issues, or even if they might say 'ongoing', you have to consider that that's just best-case scenario thinking... more like "ongoing, as long as you continue to buy it".

                          Close enough for me. Sort of falls into a gray area in-between pulp, Golden Age comic book characters, and newspaper adventure strip characters. So not quite a pulp character like The Shadow, not quite a classic newspaper strip character like The Phantom, not quite Golden Age comic book heroes like PSP.

                            With Project Superpowers, even before Ellis, I wouldn't quite label that as straight "Golden Age comic book heroes". To me, they're more of a based on and borrowing the characters from Golden Age comic books but definitely with much more modern twists / sensibilities. Almost like clones of Golden Age comic book heroes, the same way that modern-day Superman and Batman are so far removed from their Golden Age counterparts. The innocence and fun / simplicity are nowhere to be found.

                              True enough. But then Dynamite's The Shadow comic book isn't Walter Gibson's pulp Shadow either. Neither is Matt Wagner's take on The Spirit perfectly in sync with Will Eisner's, nor are the King Features adventure heroes in Dynamite's comics the same as they were in the classic newspaper strips. All of them involve "much more modern twists / sensibilities". That may seem a little more obvious with Golden Age comic heroes only to the degree that they were originally slightly more juvenile than our other examples.
