Format: Paperback
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.

Fans of Road to Perdition, Ms. Tree, Quarry or other works of Collins will enjoy the hard boiled style in this Faust meets Mike Hammer story. Dynamite (a Peter Morisi creation from the forties now owned by Dick Tracy and Batman scribe Collins) is a Mike Hammer knockoff (or tribute depending on your opinion). A hard boiled detective who loves the ladies and lays waste to the bad guys in Chicago. Until one of the baddies come back from the grave...
Fans of the Ms. Tree comic series (the longest running detective comic without a cape) will notice the clean art of Terry Beatty (lately of the animated Batman comics). I highly recommended this book for it's fun and fast paced action, as I do all of Beatty and Collins work. It's comics as they should be-enjoyable.

Format: Paperback
Collins does it again when it comes to hardboiled crime, with a one-eyed shamus named Johnny Dynamite who likes playing for keeps with the outfit. Johnny meets up with a former groupie turned actress named Selma Rosenkrantz stage name Vikki Vickers, who wants to be either a housewife or a movie star but her mobster boyfreind won't allow either until Johnny deals with him. When he comes back she's dead, and he swears to pay her louse of a boy freind back for it along with the guy who killed her. He kills the mobster and leaves Freddie Faust lying in the desert gut shot, but Faust strikes a deal with the devil. In exchange for immortality and wealth, Freddie forfeits his soul and goes back to Chicago to take over the rackets. He sends killers after Johnny and he sends them to the morgue, only to have them come back from the dead to get him, Johnny tracks Faust down and has it out with him. About thirty years later in the witness protection program, he finds Faust still alive and goes back home to finish the job. The body by the coroners own admission is thirty years old, so if they want to try him be his guest. A great story for all to read.
