      Bah, hell...I just spotted the typo in my subject line. Dynamite isn't projecting quite THAT far in the future, folks!

      One more:

      LORDS OF THE JUNGLE #2 (of 6)
      (Writer) Corinna Bechko (Art) Roberto Castro

      Displaced in time, lost in an unfamiliar wilderness, and beset by enemies on all sides, Sheena must search for a way home before her own jungle is destroyed.

          I have to admit I would never have thought of this one, but that Francavilla cover is cool beans. After looking at the names (not familiar with either of the Daves) I have to wonder if the series can possibly live up to the promise of that cover, but I guess I'll be buying it anyway.

            SPOILER ALERT: Sheena is not a member of the British aristocracy, and holds no title. The thing is, you can't pluralize either way and have it work. Would you have preferred QUEENS OF THE JUNGLE? LORD AND QUEEN, RESPECTIVELY, OF THE JUNGLE? SHEENA QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE AND A JUNGLE LORD WHO SHALL OTHERWISE REMAIN NAMELESS TO PREVENT TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT? Just go with it and don't pick nits.

              Awright!

              By Corinna Bechko and Jonathan Lau.

              The Golden Age heroine returns! New York during the Second World War is a place of mystery and intrigue, but with all our boys fighting in Europe, who will stand up to the forces of darkness at home? Miss Fury is ready to step into the breach, but even she doesn’t understand the shadow she carries within herself. Is it a force of good or of evil? And can she learn to control it in time to stop the deadly attack that threatens to destroy the Big Apple?

                Genevieve Valentine and Aeiel Medel

                After the Twilight of the Gods, the world is precariously uncertain – and Xena and Gabrielle have been missing from it for twenty-five years. Even without Livia, the power of Rome is growing: Caesar is determined to conquer by lies what he can’t conquer by force, and the people at its edges know what’s coming. (All roads lead to Rome, and Rome is hunting.) Xena and Gabrielle scramble to stop him before they have to wage war against a man they once called a friend. But along the way, Xena will have to confront her past against a rogue band of women warriors, and Gabrielle, whose secret visions are becoming prophecy, will have to protect Xena – at any cost.

                  Turok, Dinosaur Hunter. Magnus, Robot Fighter. Solar, Man of the Atom. The Mighty Samson. The legendary heroes whose adventures have thrilled comic book readers for over half a century are back, only this time they all share the same time and the same world – ours! In this breakneck first issue, each warrior wrestles with the perils of the twenty-first century, but a greater evil is approaching, one that will unify the legendary champions in a struggle that will change each forever. Join Eisner-nominated writer Phil Hester (Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, The Bionic Man) and rising star artist Brent Peeples (Last of the Greats, Legenderry: Green Hornet) for the latest and greatest chapter in the Gold Key saga.

                    Battle on Xen and Gabrielle. It's great that they're returning in new comics, but the solicitation sounds really odd.

                    So, Livia is now Eve, but Caesar (is this Augustus who was a decent guy or someone else) is hunting Xena and Gabrielle for some unknown reason. That seems a little repetitive of Julius Caesar's hunt for Xena in season 4.

                    And Xena must face someone from her evil past (which is about 31 years ago in this timeline)? Again, that's a pretty repetitive storyline for Xena and was done time and time again during the TV series. Finally, Gabrielle has suddenly acquired the gift of prophecy (that one time in One Against an Army being the exception) and is keeping her visions a secret from Xena. Once again, this is repetitive of season 4 when Xena kept the visions of their deaths a secret from Gabrielle.

                    I'm enthusiastic about finally getting to read some new adventures of Xena and Gabrielle, but the setting in "season 6" (instead of the golden age of seasons 2/3), the solicitation and even the preview art which shows Xena with the classic chakram instead of the yang yang chakram which is accurate and featured on the cover, don't fill me with confidence.

                        spoiler alert - it's wrong.
                        people with your attitude, "hey it's totally wrong but let's just ignore it cos it's 'nit-picking'" are just ridiculous. like the people who whine "grammar nazi" when people have the temerity to point out they used "your/you're" incorrectly etc. Instead of, y'know, bothering to learn the correct one.
                        here's another spoiler - the people doing this are "professional" writers who do this for a living, if they can't come up with a more workabale title then that says a lot about their talents, doesn't it?

                          A. It's meant to invoke a sequel to LORDS OF MARS (but is otherwise unrelated).
                          B. I don't see you offering any workable (and marketable) solutions for a title that don't include the trademarked "Tarzan".
                          C. There's nothing grammatically incorrect about it. Factually, it's incorrect, but then so is the singular "Lord of the Jungle" since the phrase is meant only metaphorically. In England you can inherit a title of the landed gentry, but not in Africa. If we're being sticklers for accuracy, we'd have to refer to Tarzan as "An English Lord in the Jungle". Sheena isn't a ruler of any region or tribe in Africa, either.
                          D. Why are you so hung up on the stupid title on the cover? It's not important. The story and artwork are what's important.
                          E. "cos" and "y'know" are not legitimate words.

                            Not taking sides here, but what WOULD you call it?

                              Seriously though... does anybody not get that this is DE's "branding" for its public domain version of the trademarked Tarzan? Lord of the Jungle, Lords of Mars, Lords of the Jungle... I don't recall anyone raising a stink over the highly-illogically titled Warlord of Mars Dejah Thoris over the course of its 37-issue run. That too was a branding thing... logically, it should have been called Dejah Thoris, Princess of Mars.

                              For that matter, Marvel has been publishing a title called X-MEN for 50+ years, and at no time has that group not included female members... in fact, a recent iteration (2013-2015) of the title X-MEN was composed entirely of female characters!
