A Graphic Novel Deserving Of More Attention Jan 8, 2007
I followed the four part Johnny Dynamite mini-series when Dark Horse published it back in 1994. It struck me as a cross between James Ellroy and "Kolchak The Night Stalker". Terry Beatty's artwork recalled the stiff and static art style from the Charlton Comics era of my youth. I found the compiled version of the series disappointing because the series was originally printed in garish white, black & red, and here it's printed only in black and white. It sounds weird, but I miss the ugly red print, perhaps when it reaches another printing they'll add the third color. I would still recommend this book because it's a great story and the artwork rocks in a funny way, too.
