In the throes of the cancellation of DC’s First Wave line, we learned that DC no longer had the rights to publish Doc Savage.
Well now, thanks to Baltimore Comic Con, we have news on exactly where. And, yes, it’s where you’d expect. Dynamite have signed a licensing deal with Conde Nast to publish comics featuring the character.
And they appear to be being written by a man fired from DC Comics, Chris Roberson. Which should be interesting. The book is to be drawn by Bilquis Evely, and published from December. Chris is quoted as saying;
“We start in 1933, soon after Doc Savage made his first public appearance. The next issue takes place in the late 1940s, shortly after the last published issue of the Doc Savage pulp magazine. The third issue jumps forward to the early 1960s, and so on. Each of these issues will be self-contained adventures that gradually piece together into one larger story spanning some 80 years. The approach we’re taking is, just because the magazine was no longer being published, that doesn’t mean that Doc wasn’t still out there saving the world.”
