It’s been twenty years since Neil Vokes’ series The Eagle appeared on comic book stands, but in May, American Mythology Productions brings the series back with brand new stories.

Created in 1986, The Eagle ran 23 issues under Crystal Publications, but now American Mythology Productions, and Vokes are teaming for a new run featuring the original creative team of Jack Herman and Neil Vokes.

“When are you going to bring Eagle back? Ever since the demise of the EAGLE comic in the early ‘90s our fans have been asking that question. Not a single convention appearance all these years has gone by without at least one fan asking me that. I began a new story line many years back that involved the return of Eagle to Crystal City. This was based on an idea Rich, Jack Herman and I discussed while still doing the series,” Vokes said in a prepared statement.

“We had planned on ending the series at some point with Eagle’s ‘death’ – this was to occur after a final battle with his arch enemy, Wulfgar. My plan then was to have the new storyline open years after the death of Eagle, who has now become a legend and eventually bring him back from ‘the dead” to start new adventures. It is there that we begin our new tale- in the middle of a battle to the death…”

The Eagle #1 has a $4.99 cover price, unleashing “a night of 1000 ninjas in this exciting and unique mix of martial arts, the occult, and horror. ”
