    I had seen the teaser, but it didn't register. Yeah, that IS Captain Victory's chest emblem, isn't it? As for the (famous?) quote, I don't remember it, but I'll take their word for it.

      This is the solicits for Legenderry#1:
      LEGENDERRY: A STEAMPUNK ADVENTURE #1

      Written by Bill Willingham, art by Sergio Fernandez Davila, cover by Joe Benitez.

      It's a world in which the great heroes of our stories live in the flesh. We start in the Big City, protected by Vampirella and the Green Hornet. A scarlet clad woman of mystery rushes into a bar, pursued by a team of assassins. The terror that breaks loose there and then will eventually lead (in the issues that follow) to The Phantom's Jungle, Flash Gordon's space age town of Landing, battles in the sky with Captain Victory, and so much more, until finally, we arrive in the Monstrous Lands, protected by... well, nobody.

          Interesting. I was a big fan of Joe Casey's GØDLAND at Image, a decided homage to all things Kirbyesque, so he may be the right man for the job.

          I'm a bit puzzled why he would need the help of 8 other people to create stories of CVATGR, though. I would have thought one or two artists could handle the job. Colorists and letterers usually don't get mentioned in promo pieces (often because that hasn't been nailed down until last), and if so, are usually credited as such.

            Hopefully this means other Genesis characters are on their way back too, especially Silver Star. I wonder if this will be connected to the previous series or if this will stand on it's own or kick off a new universe?

              Starting this year we have a Goldkey universe, Kings Watch universe and now a Kirby universe, maybe even Chaos, I hope DE knows what they're doing and don't bite off more than they can chew.

                Kings Watch won't last, neither will a Kirby universe if they try again. Now it appears the pulp line is dying off.. ...

                Makes me want to steer clear of their Gold Key stuff despite how awesome it looks.

                  Sounds like you're on the verge of becoming a 'trade-waiter'.

                    This isn't directed at anybody and just a general comment

                    The problem with 'trade waiters' is that if not enough people buy the series it lowers the chance of becoming a trade. I'll admit I've done it with a few books, Spider and Kato:Origins to name a couple. And it some times seems tht writers are writing with an eye toward the TPB and not the regular series.

                      I try to meet halfway; I get the books digitally (usually discounted) then buy the trade for a hard copy, assuming I enjoyed the book enough to warrant what is basically a double purchase.

                      I have a cottage at which we don't have an internet connection so I like being able to choose my reading format.

                        With the exception of some titles aimed at younger readers, it pretty much seems to be industry standard. A title has to perform pretty poorly to NOT get a trade collection. Even Green Hornet Strikes! got a trade collection once the long-delayed final issue was published. In another instance, Dragonsbane did not, after its long-delayed final issue. There's been no solicitation (unless it's in February's Previews) for an Owl TPB yet either, but I feel pretty sure it'll happen, if only because it's PSP-related. No trades for Peter Cannon or Thun'da, either. But it seems like about 80-90% of DE titles do get one, regardless of whether it's a mini or ongoing series. At Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and Image, it's closer to 100%.

                          I don't do digital, but I buy the single issues, and like you "assuming etc." That usually works out for Dynamite titles something like 50-60%. I can always sell the single issues off later, unless decide to keep them just for the covers.

                              Apparently so!

                              http://www.fandompost.com/2014/05/22...angers-series/

                              Dynamite Entertainment is continuing to load up on some really interesting series kicking off in August and one more that’s added to the list is that of Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers. The series is coming from the creative team of Haunt, Joe Casey and Nathan Fox with interior artwork by Jim Rugg and Ulises Farinas. With the property being one that came from Jack Kirby back in the day, this new incarnation is one that should have some pretty interesting and wild takes considering the source.

                              “As a fan, this was the first Kirby creation I was in on the ground floor of… so to be writing this series is a big deal and a huge honor,” says writer Joe Casey. “And we’ve got some of the best artists in the business — a lot of my favorite artists, in fact — to turn this thing into a jam of cosmic proportions. And just like Kirby always did, we’re going to be pushing the envelope in all sorts of cool ways.”

                              “I am very pleased to announce that one of my father’s iconic characters will once again be part of the world of Dynamite Entertainment,” adds the Trustee of the Kirby Family Estate, Lisa Kirby. “Nick Barrucci has brought together a very talented team of people, which include writer Joe Casey and artist Nathan Fox. Through them Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers will be introduced to a whole new generation, and for those already familiar with The Captain and his team, I am sure you’ll be entertained as well!”

                              “We’ve wanted to relaunch the universe of characters by the late, great Jack Kirby, but wanted to wait for the right creative team to help us reintroduce the characters to comic fans,” states Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “Joe Casey is a huge fan, and is bringing his own voice to these fantastic characters. We spoke about the direction he thought would engage fans, and Nathan Fox’s participation just sealed the deal. This series has been in the works for over a year as both Joe and Nathan had to fit it in to their schedules, and we did not wish to rush the series. I have to say, I couldn’t be happier. Fans are going to be ecstatic with Joe and Nathan’s story and art for the series.”

                              “Honored to be working with Kirby’s cast of characters and expanding the world of Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers with Joe Casey,” states artist Nathan Fox. “But the six-foot tall cherry on top of it all is getting to collaborate with such an insanely talented rogue’s gallery of awesomeness. This is easily one of those mind-blowing storyteller’s gigs. So humbled by the crew and looking forward to what all that Joe and the rest of us have in store for Captain Victory.”

                              “To draw some of Kirby’s craziest inventions with Joe Casey orchestrating the thing and to make a kick ass jam comic with some of the best cartoonists in the industry today: these are the reasons I wake up in the morning.” said Michel Fiffe.

                              “Captain Victory is one of Jack Kirby’s last comic books. It is an honor and thrill to work with his characters. It’s also cosmic! Cosmic is very fun to draw! I’m excited for people to see my Captain Victory work and I’m excited to work with and be part of the team of cartoonists that Dynamite has assembled to create this new Captain Victory book.” said Jim Rugg.

                              “I’m a huge Kirby fanatic, so obviously it’s a huge honor and a thrill to work on Captain Victory! And to be in such great company with all these amazing artists…it doesn’t take a genius to figure out how stellar this project is going to be.” said Jim Mahfood.

                              “Working with Joe (Casey) is always a pleasure,” says Dynamite CEO / Publisher Nick Barrucci. “Joe’s vision for Captain Victory is jaw dropping-ly great and that we’re excited in the direction he’s taking the series in!”

                              Plot concept: In Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers #1, Captain Victory is launched into an epic adventure that spans both space and time! All your favorites are here — as well as all-new enemies to face! Your new favorite cosmic comic book has finally arrived!
