Classic martial arts action is promised in the 2019 limited series Dead Legends. Scheduled to run for five issues, Dead Legends is described as a "martial arts throwback" and is scheduled to debut this February from writer James Maddox, artist Gavin Smith, colorist Marissa Louise, and letterer Ryan Ferrier.The team is currently raising funds on Kickstarter, aiming to garner $15,000 by Sunday, October 7.
"A widow seeking revenge. A champion hellbent on losing. An assassin second-guessing her contract," reads the series' description. "With over 100 pages of story and many more pages of extra features, Dead Legends is the martial arts throwback series that hits harder than a kick to the skull, brought to you by a group of dedicated comics pros who are prepared to deliver excitement with every turn of the page."
Maddox and Smith have completed the first issue and most of the second, and plan to utilize any Kickstarter funds to pay the colorist, letterer, and editor, and then all printing, shipping, and fees.
