CBR: The Golden Age Is Back in "The Next Issue Project"

Comic Book Resources - CBR News: The Golden Age Is Back in "The Next Issue Project": "This December, Image Comics will publish an anthology featuring characters you haven't seen in a very long time. 'The Next Issue Project' will showcase top talent from the world of comics reimagining Golden Age characters that have fallen into the public domain. But it's not quite as simple as that - the series will literally publish the next issue of a great golden age book, with modern interpretations of Golden Age super heroes.

The series is attracting considerable interest, with commitments coming from an august list of creators that includes Erik Larsen, Mike Allred, Kyle Baker, Frank Cho, Bill Sienkiewicz, Howard Chaykin, Steve Niles, Phil Hester, Dan Brereton, Ashley Wood, Joe Casey, Ivan Brandon, Eric Canete, Gerry Duggan, Frank Espinosa, Jay Faerber, Steve Gerber, Brandon Graham, B. Clay Moore, Moritat, Tom Scioli, Jim Valentino and Tony Salmons.

CBR News caught up with the man behind 'The Next Issue Project,' Image Comics Publisher Erik Larsen, to learn all the ins and outs of this series and where the inspiration for this series came from."
