His Name Is … Savage! Returns this December
That’s right! Gil Kane’s 1968 creation will be returning to the world of comics with new adventures starting in December through Paper Movies. His Name Is … Savage! for those who are unfamiliar is a short lived noir comic with a story you could picture the likes of James Bond having to endure. After Gil Kane had passed in 2000, few people thought they’d ever see more of this rather obscure creation from the man that brought us characters like Hal Jordan and Iron Fist.
Writing this reboot of His Name Is … Savage! is veteran comics writer Steven Grant whose known for his work on comics like Punisher and The Avengers. Illustrating this return is up and coming artist Jesus Antonio Hernandez Portaveritas with colorists Falk Haensel and Raul Manriquez. The new logo and lettering was done by multi-Ringo Award nominated letterer Taylor Esposito who also contributed to ComicMIx’s Mine! anthology.
