Image Comics has announced it is holding off on the Jack Kirby Captain Victory hardcover. The company is doing this so a proper restoration of the classic comic can be properly restored.

“The last thing we want to do is release an inferior version of this material,” Executive Director of Image Comics Eric Stephenson stated. “The more involved we’ve gotten in the restoration process, the more obvious it has become that the files and art we’re working simply aren’t up to par with those used for SILVER STAR. Faced with the decision to either complete a sub-standard edition or do this with the care and fine attention to detail it deserves, we’ve decided to push the book’s release back.”

Apparently, it has been much harder to track down all the original pages for Captain Victory and finding high quality scans of Kirby’s originals. Image Comics will re resoliciting Captain Victory as a 376-page hardcover in 2008.
