Though the first issue of Titan Comics’ Fighting American doesn’t arrive until October, the comic book publisher is giving Simon and Kirby’s creation a first release at the San Diego Comic-Con next week.
From the press release we learned all the details about how you can grab a #0 edition with cover art by Terry Dodson.
Joe Simon & Jack Kirby’s Fighting American first appeared in May 1954, and was the embodiment of the homegrown, patriotic, apple pie-eating American superhero. Fighting American brought square-jawed justice to “the Commies” and villains such as Double Header, Hotsky Trotsky, and Round Robin.
In Titan Comics’ new Fighting American series, written by Gordon Rennie (2000AD, Starship Troopers) with artwork by Duke Mighten (Judge Dredd), the story continues after Simon and Kirby’s legendary 1954 series…
Titan Comics are proud to present a first look at this brand-new Fighting American series with an Issue #0 – containing a preview of Fighting American Issue #1, and numerous back matter features that go inside the new series including; an interview with writer Gordon Rennie, character sketches by Duke Mighten, as well as the complete origin story of the red, white, and blue hero by Simon & Kirby!
