‘Tiny Titans’ Creators To Launch ‘Captain Action Cat’ Event In April At Dynamite
Fresh off the news that Dark Horse is going to be publishing the print collections of Tiny Titans creators Art Baltazar and Franco‘s Thrillbent series Aw Yeah Comics, the publisher, along with Dynamite Entertainment, and creative team are announcing one crazy crossover.
Not only will Captain Action Cat: The Timestream CATastrophe feature all the Aw Yeah Comics characters, but it’ll also include Captain Action Cat, a feline version of the classic toy Captain Action, and a collection of Dark Horse characters including Ghost, X, Captain Midnight, and the Occultist. The first issue of the series hits April 16.
“I feel so lucky to be in this industry and that people are willing to let us play with their toys,” co-writer Franco said in a press release. “This one means quite a bit to me personally because this crossover event features something we created—Action Cat from our own Aw Yeah Comics—which we get to cross over with Captain Action (as a cat) and the heroic crew from Dark Horse.”
Here’s how the press release describes the story:
There is something evil out there, and Evil Cat is determined to find it . . . even if it means searching throughout the Silver Age to do it! Could this blip on the screen be the one known as Doctor Evil Cat? What will happen when the Silver Age and the “Aw Yeah Age” collide? What does this mean for the timestream? The fate of the comic world may change forever! Plus, a mysterious frozen souvenir from the Golden Age makes a visit! For the first time ever, The Timestream CATastrophe introduces Captain Action Cat, an anthropomorphic action hero based on the classic action figure/adventure toy, Captain Action!
Franco and Baltazar just wrapped up their Itty Bitty Hellboy series for Dark Horse in December.
