Then there was a Turok story that was followed by: "Join the hunt with Turok in Magnus #1! And then, for good measure, they did it AGAIN with: "Doc Spektor returns this August in Turok #1!"

    Seriously, what the hell Dynamite? Personally, I'm intrigued just because of my obsession with Valiant and my knowledge of what's going on in the comic world every month, but how do they expect to get any new fans interested if this is how they're going to market it? It just seems so sloppy. These characters deserve Valiant.
    There's a Turok#1 coming, will check that out. But I'm passing on the Sovereigns.

    Ditto. I follow the Gold Key characters even through this iteration at Dynamite which has been more miss than hit.

    Turok's back: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/05...ries-dynamite/
    This concept sounds kinda interesting glad they're using the Lost Land again.

    I loved Sovereigns 0-1. After that i tried Magnus 1 and liked it, too.

    So now my Question: Do i have to read the older Issues of Solar, Turok and so on...? I started the first 4 Issues of Dynamites Turok story (his origin), but i dont know if its incontiunity, or not...

    I was a bit surprised how much better Sovereigns was than Gold Key Alliance but that's not surprising. Getting worse than GKA would've been a feat, they had no where to go but up.
    Magnus was decent and too much time had passed from the Turok tale in Sov#0 to Magnus #1 that it didn't flow for me. I'm going to go back and read both together later.

    To answer your question: The prior Dynamite material of these characters is not the same continuity. Read it as standalone, what they are doing with Sovereigns and any material with the GK characters going forward is it's own continuity. Despite that they will reference general character traits that are part&parcel of most any iteration.

    Bought all thee issues last week (Sovs 0-1 and Mags 1) and quite enjoyed them. Magnus was surprisingly good.

    Very interesting take on Turok he looks more Black than Native American.

    By chance I glimpsed the cover for Magnus on Comixology. Intrigud, because I liked Magnus in the past and thought the new concept sound great, I picked the first issue up.
    A good read, will check the others as well.

    This has me SMH as well. Turok could not look any less Native American if the artist tried and it's not just that the colorist messed up. The facial features are just not right.

    Magnus is interesting but I'm not solidly just fawning over it. The story feels a bit like the over arching narrative to Avengers A.I. from a few years ago that ran for 12 issues. I may be one of the few who read that whole series. Felt it deserved more of a chance so I'll stay with Magnus for just that reason as well.

    Curious about Doctor Spektor's back up story as well.

    Well I finished Sovereigns, and liked it a fair amount... it was fun and for sure unique. Can't say it gets me hype to read anything else from DynaKey, but I don't feel like I wasted money.

    Just put down Magnus #1 a second ago, and liked that as well. It was a very strange direction to take the character and world in, and I'll probably pick up at least issue 2.

    Now what about the other three characters? I thought Chuck Wendig's Hyperion series was hot trash, so I'm not looking forward to trying out Turok (although I probably will at some point), and Aubrey Sitterson (the guy that badmouthed 9/11 mourners) is writing the Doc Spektor back-ups, which makes me want to stop while I'm ahead.

    Anyone got any info?

    EDIT: Oh, and is there going to be a Solar book? Seems strange to have Turok and Magnus, but not Solar...

    Turok #2 - It answers the least mysterious question ever posed--yes, it's his daughter he's trying to save. The flashbacks to Turok(?) and his daughter having once lived in a normal house et al poses the question: how are you two here? It also makes me say, I don't buy that you're really Turok in as much as a guy who usurped the name cause he's wiley. I think upon arriving here in the Lost Land where Time is wonky he heard how feared/respected Turok was and took the name. Then had actions of bravery to ensure no one questioned him that put him place to begin tracking down his daughter. This character has demonstrated he's crafty, cunning, smart and tough but he's a black guy from "regular time" on Earth. He's not THE Turok, especially not the Turok we've seen in Sovereigns. Given we are to make a link between them. In this era of politically correct publishing it makes very little sense to take one very, very under represented ethnicity(Native American heroes) and replace it with another ethnicity that one can't exactly claim is under represented(Black Heroes).
    He's a great character. I'd read a non-titled Turok book with him but he's not Turok. I'm going to keep reading and see where the explanations go.

    The Dr. Spektor in training back-ups have been very disappointing.

    I get the impression I'm the only one reading the latest version of Dynamites Gold Key titles. Am I right?

    Turok #3 was read last night and continues to be a fun read. I'm actually curious if we are going to find out who "Turok" was before he took the name Turok. That's the part of the mystery I'm most intrigued by at this point. It's a foregone conclusion he'll get his daughter back.

    The Dr. Spektor back-ups continue to be poor, alas, if the teaser is true in this issue the finale of these Dr. Spektor backups concludes in Magnus next issue.
