Titan announce new creative team for ‘Fighting American’

by Phil Wheat

Titan Comics have announced that their Fighting American redux is to get a brand-new creative team, and a fresh new adventure in The Ties That Bind #1, coming in March 2018.

Fighting American first appeared in 1954, created by the minds behind Captain America Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. In their original Fighting American series, Simon and Kirby introduced readers to Nelson Flagg who took part in an experimental US Military procedure that saw his mind transferred into the enhanced and revitalized body of his dead brother, Johnny Flagg, to become America’s first and only super hero, Fighting American.

Titan Comics’ direct continuation of the original series takes place 63 years later, with Fighting American and his sidekick Speedboy marooned in the 21st Century. Fighting American: The Ties That Bind will see the original Fighting American faced with new and classic enemies, and some old Flagg family secrets are revealed that could break our heroes’ All-American spirit!

Written by returning series writer Gordon Rennie (2000AD, Fighting American) with art by new series illustrator Andie Tong (Spider-Man, TEKKEN), Fighting American: The Ties That Bind will debut with a stunning cover by the iconic Superman comic book artist, Jerry Ordway. Said new series artist Andie Tong:

It was exciting to hear that I would be involved in the second arc of Fighting American, taking over from the talented Duke Mighten, and carrying on the legacy that Mr. Joe Simon and Mr. Jack Kirby started.

Fighting American: The Ties That Bind #1 will go on sale in comic book stores on March 2018.
