“THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY” #1 (Dynamite) — Clint Eastwood’s iconic “Man with No Name” rides again in this brand new story by writer Chuck Dixon and artist Esteve Polls. I don’t care what you say about “Dirty Harry,” folks — “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and the rest of the “Man With No Name” films were Eastwood at his cigar-chompin’, squinty-eyed best. This issue kicks off the five-part story “Dead Man’s Hand,” and I couldn’t be happier to see the character continue to be one of the premiere bad-asses in any medium.
I’m not saying it’s going to be good, but it definitely piques the interest, eh?
Honorable Mention: “Chuck” (DC/Wildstorm) — Collecting the six-issue series based on the television series, “Chuck” is written by the program’s co-executive producer Peter Johnson and series writer Zev Borow. Fans of the show have told me this was a great tie-in that explored storylines network television simply couldn’t handle. Sounds like a good recommendation to me!
