The fantastic return of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s legendary two-fisted superhero, originally created back in 1954!
Fighting American, the ultimate icon of truth, justice and the American Way, and his young teenage sidekick, Speedboy, have found themselves marooned in the 21st Century whilst on the trail of a gang of villains plucked from their past by a mysterious villainess known only as Lady Chaos… Now, there’s nothing left for them to do but to bring some much-needed two-fisted justice and home-spun 1950s grit to a modern, media-obsessed, cynical world.
This critically-acclaimed, all-new adventure, written by Gordon Rennie (Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper and Missionary Man) and drawn by Duke Mighten (Batman: The Book of Shadows, Accident Man and Doom Force) and PC De La Fuente (Robin, Batgirl), sees the rebirth of a true AMERICAN HERO!
