Here at Hermes Press, we love finding pop culture treasure, and bring it back from memory to reality again. But when we stumbled across Agent 13, buried in the files of his creator since the late ’80s, we knew we’d hit the esoteric jackpot of coolness.
Agent 13 has it all-deathtraps, secret societies, femme fatales, a friend and lovely assistant, and an enigmatic pulp hero-delivered in a hard-hitting style. He’s now coming back from his whispered cult status, the greatest hero no one knows about, except for a few people:
During the Image Comics panel, it was announced the company is planning on bringing back everyone’s favorite Swiss Army Knife wielding hero – MacGyver.
The mini-series, called “MacGuyver: Fugitive Gauntlet”, will be five issues and arrive next summer (2012).
“I don’t want to give too much away, but there’s a gauntlet that MacGyver has to run, and he does it as a fugitive, hence the title,” writer Lee David Zlotoff said. “Let’s just say that someone with an axe to grind decides to play a game with him. He has to live out a week while every hitman in town is after him. A seven million dollar bounty is on his head, and every day it drops by a million. So the hit men have it in their best interests to kill him quick, and he has it in his best interest to run out the clock. But at the same time, he has to find out why this person wants him dead and what the true story is here.”

Vengeance just got hotter, and so did Comic-Con 2011, as TBS talk show host Conan O’Brien made his first-ever appearance at the world’s largest pop culture convention. O’Brien surprised the audience in Room 6BCF today during Warner Bros.

The Flaming C “film” — coming soon … maybe — and character were created in collaboration between O’Brien’s Team Coco, Warner Bros. Animation and renowned animator Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series), who designed the superhero during an impromptu 15-minute meeting with Conan in late 2010. Timm also serves as executive producer of Green Lantern: The Animated Series.
