This is the first issue of a series based on the popular 60s era female private detective.

Pretty good, though a tad predictable.

Writer Steve Bennett is my go-to guy for comics. And I have this title on my pull list. He wrote me two days ago saying he'd just read this very book...and was actually surprised at just how good it was in both story and art. He gave it a decent thumbs up and said I'd most likely enjoy it as well. Now comes your endorsement, Glen and I'm getting anxious to see it.

The second issue of the 2 part mini provides a nice climax and conclusion.

This title really should have a lot more buzz.

Like you Glen, I liked part one a great deal and expected part two to be as good. So thanks for you report. Am anxious to get my copy. As for them not giving the book much hype, a lot of that has been partly due to a scatter-gun approach to marketing and advertising. Something that may soon change as Moonstone has hired my good pal, Tommy Hancock as their new head of that department. I fully expect to see some major changes in the future.
Moonstone's biggest hurdle has seemed to get the spotlight away from the bigger boys, thus gems like HONEY WEST go unnoticed.

Which would be a shame because it's a solid title...great writing and artwork.

Honey West #3 is another great issue, this time about the murder of a Zsa Zsa Gabor proxy.

Get it.

Honey West #4 continues the movie storyling, and things are moving right along. Several people ty to kill her several times.

This comics deserves more buzz.

Moonstone published a flip book with Honey West on one side and Kolchak on the other.

Neither of them are that great. It seems the 8-12 page story is a lost art in comics.

Honey West #5 wraps up the story. Pretty good stuff, true to Honey's character.
