New Turok, Magnus, Solar & Samson
At the San Diego Comic-Con, Dark Horse Comics announced the acquisition of the rights to create new comic book series based on classic Gold Key comic heroes including Turok, Son of Stone, Doctor Solar, Magnus, Robot Fighter, and Mighty Samson. Jim Shooter, who revived Turok, Magnus, and Solar for the Valiant Universe in the 1990s, will be plotting and overseeing all four of the new series based on the Gold Key characters for Dark Horse. The new Dark Horse comics featuring Gold Key heroes should debut in mid-2010.
Dark Horse has already released hardcover collections reprinting vintage Gold Key comics featuring Turok, Magnus, Robot Fighter, Doctor Solar, and some of the Russ Manning Gold Key Tarzans.
