A resurrected avenger with a time limit twist: Mr Reese takes myriad familiar pop culture elements and shakes them all together to make an entertaining new series in The Adventures of Gravedigger.
A criminal given a second chance at life becomes a superhero battling menaces including a Lovecraftian wizard and the Headless Horseman. Guest appearances by other pulp inspired heroes of Mr Reese’s creation, already established and popular in their own right, never overwhelm the title character; it is always clear that it is her show and everybody else can either help or stay out of her way.
I’m looking forward to reading further volumes of her adventures and if you give it a read you’ll more than likely feel much the same.
Joel, thanks for the kind words! Whenever I have a crossover or guest appearance, I try to give all the heroes their just due but I also play by the old “comic book rules” – if it’s a Gravedigger book, she should ultimately save the day. Glad you liked it!
