In the middle of Steve Bennett’s latest column for ICv2, he stumbles across comics gold:
DC, take a page from the recent Seven Soldiers of Victory series of mini-series and pick a bunch of older characters at random that need their trademarks renewed and produce some one-shots by some of today’s top talents (everyone under exclusive contract has to do one, no excuses). Off the top of my head there’s Mark Merlin & Prince Ra-Man (an odd couple pair of roommates/supernatural detectives), Anthro (the teen caveman saga reimagined as One Tree Hill where the characters have a license to be nearly naked) and Automan (a kid finds an old retro robot in his garage and they have adventures which at no time involve the government and/or a evil corporation trying to kill them).
I would completely read that Mark Merlin and Prince Ra-Man book. Do you hear me, Dan Didio? Do you hear me?!?
