Galactic Bounty Hunters

Holy cow! Only a few days ago was I railing in disappointment about Marvel's lack of interest in their history, and then at Wizard World this weekend, they announce Lisa (daughter of Jack) Kirby is working with long-time Kirby collaborator Mike Thibodeaux on one of Jack's unfinished projects: Galactic Bounty Hunters.

I have to say that I'm nearly speechless. This really doesn't strike me as something Marvel would be doing. Not that I'm complaining, mind you, I'm a big fan of Kirby's work -- even if it is something that's being filtered through his daughter. This just totally strikes me as something very unexpected and surprising to come from Marvel.

Um... wow.

Let me tell you, this was a LONG TIME coming. I guess the people at MARVEL and the Kirby Kamp have been trying to connect for years. I think also, Marvel is looking to let some history wash under the bridge. Marvel has gotten pretty pedastrian lately and hopefully this is what the fans ... old and new... ordered!
