August 21st, 2007 (Berkeley, CA) – Image Comics’ archival collections of Jack “King” Kirby’s creator-owned work continues with CAPTAIN VICTORY AND THE GALACTIC RANGERS!
“CAPTAIN VICTORY is to NEW GODS what NEW GODS was to THOR,” says Image Comics Publisher Erik Larsen. “Jack once again reinvented age-old archetypes into something completely new and different. This series is the combination of the bombastic, over-the-top action and mythology of NEW GODS with super-gadget-packed, space-faring adventure stories.”
This hardcover collection will contain the entire 14-issue run originally published by Pacific Comics and will include an assortment of backup material much like Image’s previous Kirby collection, SILVER STAR. In addition, each page will be completely re-mastered and re-colored.
Image Comics Executive Director Eric Stephenson adds, “It’s an honor to add another Kirby classic to the Image line, especially in such a definitive edition. These collections represent Jack at his purest. New ideas are invented every other panel; new characters appear in practically every issue. We’re very proud to return CAPTAIN VICTORY to print.”
CAPTAIN VICTORY AND THE GALACTIC RANGERS HC (SEP071945), a 376-page hardcover with a cover price of $44.99, will be available for order in the September issue of Previews and will go on sale in November 28th.
