What A Dick

I have to say I’m loving The Mighty Samson from Dark Horse. The book is hilarious and wonderful. Taken from the old Gold Key comic, the story takes place in a post apocalyptic world where tribes are duking it out for the control of slaves. Believe it or not, this very dark concept seems light hearted and it’s due to the writing of Jim Shooter…back in comics again.

When I heard that Dark Horse snatched up the old Gold Key (by way of Valiant) characters with Shooter was at the helm, I was excited to welcome the return of Magnus, Turok, and Solar. But it’s The Mighty Samson that has me more excited than the other three. He’s actually kind of dick–our hero Samson–expecting women to be at his beck and call…even going so far as to tell a story about how his mother was a good slave who minded her master.

The only dower is that it comes out once every two months. Ah, well. I guess I’ll enjoy the anticipation between ishs!
