Codename: Action from Dynamite unites Captain Action with Green Hornet, Kato and More!
Dynamite Entertainment is teaming up with Captain Action Enterprises for the September launch of Codename: Action. Thesix-issue comic book event unites Captain Action, with classic pulp heroes including Green Hornet, Kato, the Spider, and Black Venus. Written by Chris Roberson and featuring artwork by Jonathan Lau , the debut issues will include variant covers by accomplished illustrators Jae Lee, Francesco Francavilla, Jonathan Lau, Johnny Desjardins, and Art Baltazar.
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!
Codename: Action #1 is solicited in the Diamond July Previews catalog for release in September. Dynamite has welcomed a talented pool of artists, including award winners and fan-favorites, to provide a selection of cover variants for readers to enjoy. Shipping to retailers in an equal ratio of cover variants, Codename: Action #1 features five covers, one each from Jae Lee, Francesco Francavilla, Jonathan Lau, and Johnny Desjardins, plus a special “Captain Action Spy Cover” design edition. Dynamite will also produce a sixth, Subscription-Only “Cute” variant featuring artwork by Art Balthazar, limited only to retailer initial orders as a reward for dedicated Dynamite fans.
