Jack Kirby and Joe Simons's the Fighting American is being revived for a new title at Titan Comics, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Titan's new series will reportedly pick up immediately after Kirby & Simon's original 1954-55 seven-issue run, with the new story by Godon Rennie and Duke Mighten.

Simon and Kirby created the Fighting American in the early 1950s following a revival of Captain America by Marvel Comics (then known as Timely Comics). Although initially set in the mold of a U.S. patriotic hero, the two creators eventually pushed the creator-owned character into superhero satire, remarking on the McCarthy hearings.

Over the years, various publishers have licensed and created new Fighting American stories, including DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Harvey Comics, Awesome Entertainment, and most recently, Dynamite Entertainment.

No details about the launch date of Titan's Fighting American title were given.
