  • Project Superpowers, thus far... (check list)

    Hello!

    I'm a bit late joining the Project Superpowers party. I stumbled upon #0 and #1 at a local used book store and--of course--I was hooked.

    I am just curious, how many issues and series have been published so far? Also, is there anywhere that I can get some background on the concept behind the series; I've read something about all of these characters being "public domain"... COOL!

    Thanks for you help!

    -------------------------

    PS Here's my best newbie attempt at Project Superpowers thus far... (please add corrections, additional info)

    Project Superpowers: 0, 1/2, 1-7, Prelude; hardcover trade, softcover (in January 2009)
    Black Terror: 1, 2, 3 (of ??? planned issues)
    Death Defying 'Devil: ( ??? issues planned; to begin publication in December?)

        Here's what I can tell you briefly: In the '30s and '40s there were a bunch of comic companies and tons of super heroes. After WWII super heroes lost much popularity and companies went out of business. Many of those characters were never heard from again and are now public domain.

        The idea behind the series is - there were once dozens of super heroes, but after WWII they all vanished. Why did they vanish? Where did they go? What if they came back?

        If you want background on the characters themselves, there's some links in my sig that can get you started...

            Happy to have you aboard Ninjaface.

            There is a thread on this forum with character sheets for all of the main characters. I also created a yahoo group for Project Superpowers that has a little more stuff on it, including Bibliographies and links to Info sites and Golden Age Reprint sites.

              Yes, Prelude is the new $1 issue that is supposed to preview the 2nd series, as well as the 3 spin-offs. Not a lot of details about the Sketchbook, but I assume it will be similar to the Avengers/Invaders Sketchbook. It is mentioned in the Prelude solicitations.

                Black Terror has been moved to November? And the hardcover and Masquerade title to next year? Jeez, I am getting tired of all these delays. I understand that they have a lot on their plate because it's still the beginning for them, but it is still painfull.
