My Thanks to William Katt, The Real Greatest American Hero for taking the time to talk and pose with me @ the 2009 San Diego Comic Con International!

Earlier this morning I finished sending a re-write of the chapter I was asked to write for an upcoming book to my Editor...  

Having that out of the way made me feel good!

Just like I felt 'good' reading the final issue of what has turned out to be a well written and illustrated three issue 'origin story arc' of 'The Greatest American Hero' from Catastrophic Comics / Arcana Comics!

Sure, it may have been a little bit of nostalgia reading the comic book series, but you can also see by the front cover of issue #3 above, that the series has been updated to the 2000's!

Issue #3 is actually the final installment in the 'origin story arc' of the comic book title.   I am hoping that there will be a continuation of new adventures for this title from Catastrophic Comics that has the blessing from the TV Show creator Stephen J. Cannell!

After the 2008 San Diego Comic Con International (SDCCI) I blogged about seeing the Greatest American Hero Panel.  I was fortunate enough to see William Katt, Connie Selleca, and Robert Culp at that special program.  It was there that William announced that there would be a comic book title named after the show they were all in!  I looked forward to seeing that title, and have blogged a few times about the earlier two issues, and also seeing William Katt at this year's 2009 SDCCI.

It was at last month's SDCCI that I picked up the third issue, and have since read it.  I get so many comics / graphic novels sent in that it does take time to read and then review via blogging the ones that I want to bring to my blog readers attention!

This 3rd issue does tie up the origin story arc, but also has a teaser for what could come next.  I suggest that you take a look at the issues if you were a fan of the show.  The show's flavor does carry over to this print format very well.  That's due to the script by William Katt, Derek McCaw, and Christopher Folino.  Plus the pencils and inks by Clint Hilinski.  The full package was edited nicely by Editor Sean O'Reilly.

You should be able to pick up copies of the three issues published so far from your usual sources.  If not, Catastrophic Comics does have an eBay Store also!

If after reading this title you find yourself interested in what William Katt and Catastrophic Comics are doing next and what other comic conventions they may be attending, check them out at: http://www.catastrophiccomics.com

BTW, unless we are on site all day and night during a three day or longer comic con... we do blog daily on comic book creators, comic book reviews, and pop culture news and events!

Wow! The greatest American Hero comic!? That's great! I like how it keeps that 'retro' eighties look on the cover. And with the original actor writing the script..well, they would know what's best.

It gives me hope that one day they could do something like that for Voyagers! I always loved the idea, I wish I was an artist, then I would get that ball rolling, lol. I have toyed with the idea of making an amateur comic book, using a comic book software program I have and photoshop, but it would be a lot of work, and I would really only be able to use screenshots from the series and pretend that the action I conjure up is real, lol. It's all in my head and I can see it working, but I'd have to carefully script it out and such. 

Thanks for blogging this,

Take care, G.
