There are plenty of comics in stores today. Before you head to your LCS, take the jump to see what Dynamite Entertainment is offering up this week.
In the late 1960s and early 70s, few actors stood as tall in their heroic roles as Ron Ely. From television’s Tarzan to the big screen’s Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze, Ely’s 6-foot-4-inch muscular frame made the scenery cower when he stepped before a camera. The 74-year-old actor stands just as tall today, commanding audiences with his tales of those golden days of pulp fiction on film. Warner Archive Collection has brought Ely’s best-loved roles back into the spotlight, making the classic titles available on DVD and through its new live-streaming service, Warner Archive Instant.
