On his ComicSpace page, Dave Ryan provides details on War of the Independents, a mega-crossover project that will unite Madman, Mr. Monster, Shi, Shadowhawk and a ton of other heroes who were feeling left out of Civil War and Infinite Crisis:
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! The deadline for joining the War was Jan. 1st. There are so many indies and creators out there, some of which I’ve never even heard of, that to be fair I allowed anyone who asked to be involved in it. Let the games begin!
It will be co-published with Arcana and follow a 4 issue lead-in series called “Penance” launching in July 2007.
