Color me even more interested in Titan Comics’ Summer launch, thanks to the news that the publisher is reviving A1 as part of its line. Bleeding Cool reports:
The new A1 will lauch in June as a monthly anthology and will include comics that Elliott has been developing with Heavy Metal.
Creators will include Dave Elliott, Barnaby Bagenda, Garrie Gastonny, W. H. Rauf, Rhoald Marcellius, Sakti Yuwono and Stellar Labs, and the first three strips will be the fairytale mashup Weirding Willows, the superhero fighting in the Hevane/Hell apocalypse Odyssey and the wolrd’s greatest seven assassins, Carpe Diem.
Hopefully, the deal also includes some form of collection or reprinting of some of the earlier A1 material; the first run of the series had material from Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison, Dave McKean, Jamie Hewlett, Barry Windsor-Smith, Glenn Fabry and pretty much everyone and anyone who was active in the late 1980s/early 1990s British comic scene.
