Dynamite Add Captain Action To Their Line Of Pulp Heroes

For a while, Ed Catto and Joe Ahearn have been trying to revive the Captain Action property, publishing comics, starting a toyline, doing deals with other licenses to use their owned costumes to dress up Captain Action as other characters.

And now he seems to have signed a deal with Dynamite, for a new series Codename: Action that sees Captain Action alongside Green Hornet, Kato, the Spider, and Black Venus.

And possibly dressing up as them, I don’t know.

The comis is by Chris Roberson and Jonathan Lau with issue one covers  from Jae Lee, Francesco Francavilla, Jonathan Lau, Johnny Desjardins, and Art Balthazar.

CODENAME: ACTION takes place during the Cold War, as unknown forces scheme to heat up the global conflict.  When key officials on both sides of the Iron Curtain are replaced with doppelgangers, the infiltration threatens to disrupt the precarious state of world affairs… until one young secret agent shapes the world’s masked heroes into a force with singular purpose and unyielding resolve!
