THE COMPLETE ALICE IN WONDERLAND HARDCOVER
184 pages FC • $24.99 • All Ages
Written by LEWIS CAROLL
Adapted by LEAH MOORE & JOHN REPPION
Art by ÉRICA AWANO
Cover by JOHN CASSADAY

Take one politely stubborn and opinionated young girl. Add an overactive imagination. Shake in a heavy mix of puzzling and bizarre guides. Reduce all morals and lessons to the nonsensical degree and send it all on a journey to nowhere….

These are the ingredients that Lewis Carroll combined to create a fairy tale unlike any other. Dynamite Entertainment is proud to present for all ages The Complete Alice In Wonderland, the most vivid adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s genre bursting tales of young Alice and her adventures in Wonderland. It contains Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass and the LOST chapter (from Looking Glass) “The Wasp in a Wig!”

“By adapting Carroll’s work so faithfully, writers Leah Moore and John Reppion remind everyone that there is a reason the title of his novel was not just ‘Wonderland.’ In their hands, readers can’t help but realize that Alice is a remarkable creation.” – Philadelphia Daily News

“This is a wonderful re-imagining of a classic tale.” – Comic Book Resources

“Carroll’s wildly imaginative story rightfully explodes onto the page of a comic. Of course, it helps that artist Érica Awano and colorist PC Siqueira are easily up to the task; the work is a glorious mash-up of westernized manga and pastels, giving this book the unique visual look it demands.” – Comic Book Waiting Room

“They have instilled in me a desire to understand the original as well as continue to read this version. As far as adaptations are concerned, I can think of few higher compliments.” – Broken Frontier

THE GREEN HORNET: YEAR ONE #4
32 pages FC • $3.99 • Teen +
Written by MATT WAGNER
Art by AARON CAMPBELL
Cover by JOHN CASSADAY, FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA (1-IN-10)
“Black, White & Green” retailer incentive cover by JOHN CASSADAY

The origin of the original team of crime-fighters continues! Set in the golden age of comics and history, writer Matt Wagner weaves a tale of action and adventure unlike anything else seen on the comic racks! Add in the exquisite art of Aaron Campbell and Francesco Francavilla, and you have the perfect companion to the modern day adventures of the Green Hornet from Kevin Smith and Dynamite! Our tale is split across time, following both Britt and Kato developing into the men they would become and the adventures they formed together as the Green Hornet and Kato!

“Wagner takes the reins of the first Green Hornet, Britt Reid, and sets the story in the halcyon days of the 1930s, when the Green Hornet radio program first aired. I love the period piece he’s working with because it’s such a big difference from the Green Hornet Kevin Smith is currently writing.” -BlogCritics.com

PAT LEE’S WIDOW WARRIORS #1
32 pages FC • $3.99 • Teen +
Written by LLOYD CHAO & CHRISTINE CHI-LONG TO
Art and cover by PAT LEE
“Virgin” retailer incentive cover by PAT LEE

Book 1: Family Honor Over a thousand years ago, the great kingdom of China was under constant threat of invasion by powerful tribes and warring states along its rugged western border. For generations, one fiercely-patriotic clan of warriors — the “Yang”– battled bravely in the nation’s defense. The widows of the clan pleaded with the Emperor, whose own court had become weakened by corruption and greed, to send reinforcements. But none came. Soon, the last remaining Yang soldiers were overwhelmed by a sea of bloodthirsty invaders. Distraught and incensed, the Yang widows – a few hundred strong and many of whom also seasoned warriors – took arms and set off to the western border.

But even before reaching the enemy, the journey itself would be fraught with peril. In their determination to avenge the deaths of loved ones, the Widow Warriors would face the full fury of nature’s most destructive forces, a vast enemy army with sorcery and monsters on its side, and perhaps most powerful of all, the demons within themselves.

Written by LEAH MOORE & JOHN REPPION
Art by AARON CAMPBELL
Cover by JOHN CASSADAY

Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic detective Sherlock Holmes returns in all-new adventures! Sherlock finds himself involved in a mystery that has him fighting for his very life and Watson putting the pieces together to either save his friend or condemn him! Written by Leah Moore and John Reppion with reverence and a modern edge, artist Aaron Campbell completes the Victorian mood under the striking and iconic John Cassaday covers. Also contains bonus material such as script pages, a cover gallery, and a complete Sherlock Holmes short story by Arthur Conan Doyle with new illustrations.

“A fantastic opening shot, literally, to a great new Holmes mystery that I can’t wait to read the next chapter of.” – Ed Brubaker, writer of Captain America, Daredevil, Criminal and Incognito.

“…Sherlock Holmes is alive and well and living inside this book!” – J. Michael Straczynski, creator of Babylon 5, writer of Thor, Amazing Spider-Man and Clint Eastwood’s Changeling

“Moore and Reppion bring new life to the iconic Holmes and Watson, with a tantalizing tale and their hallmark attention to period detail. Whether you’re a dedicated Sherlockian or a Holmesian newbie, grab this one!” – Leslie S. Klinger, author of the New Annotated Sherlock Holmes series.

“A wonderful plunge into Sherlock Holmes’s world of mystery, danger, and intrigue! A great read!” – Robin Furth, co-writer of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower graphic novels.

“As a Doyle fan and an avid Holmes follower, I was skeptical about any new edition of these classic characters. I’m delighted to say that the book exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. The story and dialogue are crisp and clever without seeming out of time. The artwork by newcomer Aaron Campbell and storytelling by Leah Moore and John Reppion scripting, are first rate. Great faces and delicious angles. This book is in the hands of smart creators who have clearly done their homework and given Sherlock Holmes a bold and fresh voice. Add to that a fantastic Cassaday cover and what are you waiting for?

“It’s a Batman story with a brand new wrapper!” – Jeph Loeb, writer/producer of Heroes, Lost, Smallville, writer of Hulk and Batman The Long Halloween.

“The Trial of Sherlock Holmes does an absolutely incredible job of revisiting well known characters and making them fresh, vibrant and mysterious. This is a terrific rendition of Holmes, with great writing and plotting, and absolutely striking art. It’s so rare to find canonical material rendered so respectfully and faithfully, and yet so amazingly successful on its own terms.”
– David Liss, author of The Devil’s Company and The Whiskey Rebels.
