Turok, Dinosaur Hunter. Magnus, Robot Fighter. Solar, Man of the Atom. The Mighty Samson. The legendary heroes whose adventures have thrilled comic book readers for over half a century are back, only this time they all share the same time and the same world - ours! In this breakneck first issue, each warrior wrestles with the perils of the twenty-first century, but a greater evil is approaching, one that will unify the legendary champions in a struggle that will change each forever. Join Eisner-nominated writer Phil Hester (Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, The Bionic Man) and rising star artist Brent Peeples (Last of the Greats, Legenderry: Green Hornet) for the latest and greatest chapter in the Gold Key saga.
The only thing that looks to be the same is Erica is still Solar.
I'm excited to see Mighty Samson back in the mix. He's a favorite of mine. I realize he's not from the Valiant era but if they ever get the Gold Key characters legally and wholly I'd like to see him involved.

After a year+ away I think I can commit to this one title. Unsure if it's a mini, a maxi(12 issues) or ongoing until they decide to cancel it.
Coming April 6, 2016

I love the cover! But of course I will never buy it, as I NEVER buy Dynamite stuff.

I'm surprised they didn't call it "VALIANCE" or "ALLIANT"

(...and misspell it "ALIANT")

:lol:

I'll assume 4-5 issues, then nothing for another year.

Nice cover, but I won't buy any Dynamite books. Let me know when it fails and Valiant buys the rights. :devil:

I'll assume 4-5 issues over the course of a year, then nothing for another year after the last issue hits, assuming the last solicited issue is actually released.

I snagged the first three issues in the Comixology sale. We'll see if they're any good. Also, holy heck I've been gone from this board for awhile.
Manga, comics, who cares? They're pretty much the same thing.

So, yeah, it's pretty good so far. Well-written, serviceable art, but not particularly deep. It's a fun summer crossover. People not reading it aren't exactly missing anything.

Last issue hit today. I may read it in trade if I can bring myself to buy a Dynamite book.
BTW I heard they are done with the Gold Key license.

I did bring myself to buy it, and can say there is no reason for you to hurry to read it.

This is the best news I've herd all year.
I'm surprised the last issue didn't take place in easter bunny land with ompaloompas as a villains.

I have been confused from #1 on this series. However, #5 was not that bad. I actually enjoyed it. It threw a few bones to the VH1 days in my opinion.

And it is great news to hear that they are done with the Gold Key license!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Now if I can just hit the lottery and buy the characters outright .... :hope:

I finally got around to finishing this series. Mess. There was no story. Like, at all.

So - just read issue 1. Got them all cheaply. Supporting LCS. Didn't even know they were publishing until it was done.

Will update and write reviews. Really. On my website as I get there.
Hey, look! I have a podcast!

If I win an argument, it doesn't mean I'm right. It means I'm a better arguer.

In addition, I'm right.
