This April, Matt Fraction and Terry Dodson are teaming for Adventureman, a new series at Image Comics.
According to Matt Fraction, he and Terry and Rachel Dodson have been working on Adventureman for a long time. Before you jump on the title of the book, take a look at the description of the series from Image Comics:
The story of beloved pulp hero “Adventureman” ended with a never-resolved cliff-hanger for his legion of fans as their hero faced execution at the vile hand of his ultra-nemesis “Baron Bizarre.” And now, eighty years later, single mother Claire and her Adventurefan son Tommy seem to be the only two people alive that remember the thrilling Adventureman sagas… but from that memory burns the spark of… resurrection. What if it was all true? What if it all really happened? And what if it was happening again? Where his story ended… her story begins!
The art design has a lot of art-deco stylings, and I do love me some Dodson art, and considering the first issue is going to be 64-pages while still featuring a $3.99 cover price, I think this is going to be a no-brainer of a book to pick up.
