Magnus_featured

Dynamite is rebooting the classic Gold Key comic, Magnus: Robot Fighter, and has released new covers from its upcoming Magnus. This new version is written by Kyle Higgins with art by Jorge Fornés, and we can recognize some key differences from the original right away. To start with, Magnus is no longer wearing a mini-dress. No big surprise there --- most reboots over the years have given him pants.

But secondly, this take on Magnus is a woman.

Sovereigns_featured

Magnus Robot Fighter, Doctor Spektor, and Turok began as the stars of Gold Key Comics, a company that no longer exists. In the 1990s they found a home at the original Valiant Comics, but now they're published by Dynamite. And they're getting a shot in the arm, courtesy of The Sovereigns #0, a 48-page one-shot coming out in April that Dynamite has been teasing over the past couple of days. Priced at only $1, the book comes from creators Ray Fawkes, Johnny Desjardins, Aubrey Sitterson, Chuck Wendig, and Kyle Higgins.

The Most Strange-erous Game: Predator’s Weirdest Hunting Trips

pred-feat

Aside from their first initial, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Archie Andrews have never had all that much in common. That changed this week, when Dark Horse Comics released Archie Vs. Predator, and the alien big game hunter that menaced a dirty, sweaty, well-muscled cast lead by Schwarzenneger in the 1987 film Predator set his sites on Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and their quite killable gang.

In film, Predators have been mostly content to hunt humans, and aliens from the Aliens franchise, across a series of five films — Predator, Predator 2, AVP: Alien Vs. Predator, Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem and Predators — but in comics, they've pursued and usually failed to obtain some pretty exotic skulls.

Fred Van Lente Talks ‘Magnus,’ ‘Conan’ and ‘G.I. Joe’ [NYCC 2013]

FVL01

Most creators would probably consider a con to be successful if they had one big project announced. This weekend at NYCC, Fred Van Lente, who's already had a big year with G.I. Joe, Brain Boy and Archer & Armstrong, managed to land himself two. Not only will he be part of Dynamite's Gold Key relaunch as the writer of Magnus: Robot Fighter, he'll also be taking over Dark Horse's Conan the Barbarian at #26.

I sat down with Van Lente at NYCC's Artist's Alley to find out more about these projects, as well as why G.I. Joe #3 is the best single issue of the year -- and why he's leaving that book after #11.
