I don't know if anyone read Turf but Jonathan Ross is now teaming up with Bryan Hitch on this new book.
In the world of reality TV, it's not uncommon for a program to air two episodes in one week to boost viewership and gain fan support. But in comics, doubling up on content is a rare beast.
That's why it's a bit surprising that today CBR News learned "America's Got Powers" -- the new Image Comics series from Jonathan Ross and Bryan Hitch -- will double up for its April debut. "We are pleased as punch to let you know that April won't just see the release of 'America's Got Powers' issue #1 by me (Bryan Hitch) and him (Jonathan Ross). It will also have issue #2, just fourteen days later," the artist explained. "That's right -- issues #1 and 2 of 'America's Got Powers' both out in April. The fact is, we just couldn't wait to show you the next issue, so we decided not to!"
Fans can expect #1 on April 11 and #2 on April 25. And the extra shot of content isn't the only piece of news Hitch was willing to share. "To help us make it extra special, our pals, legendary 'Watchman' and 'Secret Service' agent Dave Gibbons and the 'Superior' 'Supercrook' himself, Leinil Yu have joined the party and are each drawing variant covers for the first issue.
I want to see Dave Gibbons' and Leinil Yu's variant covers before I pre-order but I will
be buying this. I love Wossy and Bryan Hitch's art was the reason I picked up my first comic as an adult. The concept also sounds very cool.
