Warren Ellis's next American comics publisher is Dynamite Entertainment. Ellis is coming to the publisher to spearhead the relaunch of their Superpowers line, a line-up of comics featuring golden age heroes in the modern day. The acclaimed writer joins the publisher for their tenth anniversary.
"I've long been fascinated by the period in comics that produced these characters, and I'm very much looking forward to working out the strange, atmospheric take on the weird thriller that they inspired," Ellis said in a press release. "Also, it's going to be a pleasure to finally do a job through the good offices of my old friend Nick Barrucci."
The Superpowers line has previously drawn creators like Alex Ross and Jae Lee to its ranks. While no specific release details, including date, number of series, or artist were mentioned, we expect more details to come in the next couple of weeks as we see the comic convention circuit begin in earnest.
