    Fighting American? Is that the same series that Rob Liefeld tried to publish when he was ousted from his classic run on Captain America?

    Lets be fair though, the Fighting American was originally a HARVEY comics character created by Jack Kirby during the 50’s. Kinda campy, but he is still a Cold War Kirby creation DESPITE what Liefeld tried a few years back.

      Jack and Joe starting F.A. at Prize comics, home of Frankenstein and the Green Lama. And yes, he’s much cooler than anything Liefeld created with his own little brain.
