Have you read Jungle Girl? Did you understand the end? Me not, too! Oh yes, there was no end, there was a gigantic cliffhanger. Ouh, yeah. Let's start another one of this amazing adventures. It's so masochistic. I like it. Yessss! Hit me with your open end, baby. The pain of Marvels retcons and re-boots is so baby against Dynamites really pleasureful unfulfilled adventures.
Here's a good license, Remo Williams (and the supreme master on Sinanju, Chiun!)
I know Marvel published a couple of series in the 80s, but I'm not sure if they still have the license.
What do you all think?
Red, Frank Cho's Jungle Girl was different from most other DE titles in that it was creator-owned (I think the only other DE series that qualify are those created by Garth Ennis). They were clearly marketed as miniseries (with the second miniseries having the title Frank Cho's Jungle Girl 2) -- as opposed to a lot of other DE series where it's not clear whether it's "limited" or "ongoing". With the creator-owned series, you can never really be sure whose decision it was to not continue (it might not have been DE's). Frank Cho created it and chose the creative team, I don't think he just tossed the concept in DE's lap and said "Do whatever you want with it as long as you keep sending me checks". He's free to take it to another company to continue it as well. It worked for The Boys when Ennis moved it from DC to DE.

So apparently Syfy has cancelled Sanctuary to create more reality garbage and further alienate it's fanbase. . . . ok wait I know I was making a point about comics here. . .
OH OK, SO since Dynamite has done Warehouse 13 and BSG they would be the logical ones to give us Sanctuary Season 5. The show is packed with monsters, super people. high tech, old high tech (steampunkish), and even a little magic so it already seems more suited to a comic than a series. The finale left us with a kind of blank slate when SPOILERS the surviving main characters started a new sanctuary and began to operate in secret. As a comic we could also see the return of characters like John Druitt who was conspicuously absent toward the end.
In the unlikely event that the Siegel heirs win the Superman copyright case, maybe Dynamite could license "The Original Superman"...
I'd buy it!
As I mentioned a few posts back, I'd like DE to pick up The Destroyer
I know IDW currently does a GI Joe comic, but I would like to see the GI Joe Adventure Team based on the toy from the early 1970's.
You mean Bulletman, Atomic Man, Tom Stone...those guys? That would be great!

They might easily come up with a storyline to tie the "Adventure Team" to the regular (3.5") Joe continuity, whether taking place in another time (the 1970s) or as some special branch of the regular G.I Joe team.

Tony, you are spot on. dont forget the sea wolf submarine, the Adventure Team Vehicle and Kung Fu Grip!!!
Positronic, thanks for the confirmation. I figured it would have to come through IDW. I personally havent seen any GI Joe comics in the Adventure Team genre. Just wanted to make sure I hadnt missed something.
