Titan’s new ‘Fighting American’ book to debut as SDCC 2017

by Phil Wheat

Titan Comics have announced that fans attending San Diego Comic-Con will be able to get a first look at Titan Comics’ new Fighting American series with a convention special Issue #0 featuring a black and white pencil cover by comic book legend, and personal favourite of mine, Terry Dodson! Written by Gordon Rennie (2000AD, Starship Troopers) with artwork by Duke Mighten (Judge Dredd), this new chapter in the Fighting American story continues after Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s legendary 1954 series…

From the press release:

Joe Simon & Jack Kirby’s Fighting American first appeared in May 1954, and was the embodiment of the homegrown, patriotic, apple pie-eating American superhero. Fighting American brought square-jawed justice to “the Commies” and villains such as Double Header, Hotsky Trotsky, and Round Robin.

Titan Comics are proud to present a first look at this brand-new Fighting American series with an Issue #0 – containing a preview of Fighting American Issue #1, and numerous back matter features that go inside the new series including; an interview with writer Gordon Rennie, character sketches by Duke Mighten, as well as the complete origin story of the red, white, and blue hero by Simon & Kirby! Plus, this 24-page comic comes with a special black and white pencil sketch of Terry Dodson’s cover to Issue #1.

Check out the awesome Terry Dodson cover below and, if you’re going to the San Diego Comic Con this year, this special edition is available to purchase at the Titan booth #5537 at San Diego Comic-Con 2017. There’s also an opportunity to get their comic signed by cover artist Terry Dodson at Titan booth #5537 on Friday 21st July at 1pm.
