Golden Treasure

By now we have seen 12 issues of this series (not to mention the original run with 8 issues) and all the extra titles that make this reincarnation of Golden Age heroes spectacular to this reviewer. Golden Age heroes are copy right free I take it, as they have appeared in many other titles from the big two and many independent publisher. None other has done it as well as Dynamite Entertainment under Alex Ross’s artistic and plotting direction. There are characters here to populate an exiting comic universe and Project Superpowers does it the way comics need to do it to become relevant to the reading public.

What makes this reincarnation work? Simply by creating an alternate reality in which a cabal of super evil doers corrupt a once proud super heroic family (Dynamic Family) and imprisoning the champions of the Golden Age in an Urn that transform them during their hibernation, morphing their powers and internal drives.

The realization of this transformation and the resulting conflicts drive this series to many paths, each as interesting as the others, giving us a complex universe of situations that can be exploited by the creators in multiple titles. This is resulting in a complex story line that can be traced logically as it evolves and maintains its internal logic issue upon issue unlike what we see in many of the multilayered comics released by the big two.

The fact that there is a continuity in the writing, plotting and artistic contributions is a credit to the vision of the authors and artists working for Dynamite and in this series in particular. Way to go Dynamite!!!
