Dynamite has revealed that Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt will be collected in a deluxe oversized hardcover format for fans to fully appreciate and treasure the critically acclaimed limited series.
Not only is Kieron Gillen writing superheroes again… Not only is Pete Morisi’s iconic Charlton hero back again… The series turns the mirror around to reflect the deconstruction of the legendary text, Watchmen. Peter Cannon, of course, served as the template for Alan Moore’s Ozymandias, alongside the other characters inspired by Charlton Action Heroes. What if the inspirations get to respond to this modern post-Watchmen landscape of the medium?
The ambitious series by a perfectly in-synch creative team wowed fans and critics when it debuted at the beginning of 2019. Kieron Gillen’s scribe is matched by rising artist extraordinaire Caspar Wijngaard and renaissance man and Eisner-nominee Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou on letters. Additionally, this editions contains all the gorgeous and fun covers of the series by Kris Anka, Kevin Wada, Chip Zdarsky, Sean Phillips, Christian Ward, Paulina Ganucheau and more! All bringing 110% to this series. The next classic text? You be the judge.
This edition will collect the entire series in a high-quality hardcover with pages measuring 7.2 by 11.2 inches. Readers can marvel at Wijngaard and Safro’s art at this larger size. And even Ostmane-Elhaou’s subtle lettering tricks, especially in the game-changing fourth issue.
Fans can cherish this edition of the book, studying it closely for all the Easter eggs and homages. At least until a prequel unauthorized by Gillen is announced…
The Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt Oversized Hardcover is slated for release in September 2019.
