Public Domain Superheroes Get Their Own Trading Card Set

"Four Color" preview

The Drawn Word has announced plans to do a trading card series called Four Color, highlighting "as many obscure and public domain comic book characters as possible." The company is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, with it already surpassing 75% of its goal.

“When I first started learning about comics in high school, I was fascinated with the amount of old characters who’d fallen between the cracks of comics history,” said Christopher Irving of the Drawn Word. “Since getting into the trading card game with the Madman Comin’ Atcha 3D trading card set (with conversions by Christian LeBlanc), the Amazing Heroes cards, and the Captain Action pack, I decided it was time to collect as many of these characters in trading card form.”

Each Four Color pack will contain 20 different cards, with plans to add more as the the Kickstarter campaign goes on. The initial set will include Black Angel, Frankenstein, Captain Flash, Black Venus, the Target, Black Owl and more.
