Dynamite Entertainment has announced Superpowers will be the next project for Alex Ross and Jim Krueger. Apparently the project has been under development for the past three years and the first issue should see the light of day before the end of 2007.
“SUPERPOWERS will be unlike anything that Dynamite has done to date,” said Dynamite Publisher Nick Barrucci in a prepared statement. “Not only in terms of the subject matter, but in terms of every approach we’re taking with the series. After all, it’s not everyday you get to work with Alex Ross. Although, I should throw in a tease that I’m living the dream of two lifetimes as this is just one of the projects we have cooking with Alex in 2007 and 2008!”
Ross will be co-plotting the series and do the cover work and character designs, with the series written by Jim Krueger.
Take the jump for more information and the first painted piece for Superpowers that will also be a print available at Alex Ross’ booth at next week’s Comic-Con International in San Diego.
From the dawn of the 20th Century came a new chapter in mankind’s history, unleashed during a time of great war and destruction.
It was the beginning of the Age of the SUPERPOWERS, yet with the closing of the Second World War, this new spark seemingly flickered and died.
Now the story can be told of the great lost Superpowers — men and women with incredible abilities who changed the course of mankind forever . . . and who had been thought lost . . .
Until now . . .
