PREVIEW: Glory #23

The excitement is starting to build as we move closer to 2012 and the return of Extreme comics to the Image Comics lineup.  One of the books we’re most excited about is Glory, which picks up at issue #23 with writer Joe Keatinge and artist Ross Campbell and is definitely a title to watch.  With Keatinge’s take on Glory being fully realized by Campbell in a way that’s got a lot of heads turning before the book is even released.

Image Comics released the below preview of Glory #23 which gives us a taste of what we can expect as the heroine is brought back to the forefront in a way that is both accessible to new readers, as well as loyal to fans of the character dating back to the 1990s.  It’s a delicate balance to take a pre-established character such as Glory, and usher into a new age. Luckily Keatinge and Campbell seem to be hitting on all cylinders, as we see in this preview where Glory punches a Nazi tank. They sold me with that single panel.

Glory #23 is going to be in stores and available digitally on February 15, 2012. Here’s the full solicitation info:

  1. Funny thing, I was at the Dollar Store on Satruday and ran across some comics. It was one of those polybagged bundles of comics from the 90’s. Inside was ShadowHawk #4 and Youngblood Strikeforce #1.

    Shadowhawk had a guest apperance from Savage Dragon.

    Youngblood Strikefile featured Glory, Diehard, and Super Patriot as written and drawn by Mr Rob Liefeld.

    Let’s just say I’m glad I only payed a dollar for this shite.

    • Cover artist extraordinaire Dave Johnson did a four issue mini series of Super Patriot that was pretty mother flipping good and worth digging in dollar bins for.

    • waaahhhh???? the 13 year old part of my brain can’t possibly comprehend what you wouldn’t love about those issues. I just flipped through that strikefile mini the other day and thought, “gee the 90’s were awesome”

    • @dent309. Jae Lee’s art was awesome in Strikefile, I’ll give’em that.

    • The 90’s in comics was crap. The best thing that came out of the 90’s was Jim Lee’s X-Men run and that was only 13 issues.

  2. Man this looks like crap. I don’t knwo where this excitement is but its not here in the south east. Plus alt cover by BLAH Rob Liefeld. Not a good comback.

    • Wanna know what real crap is? Read that issue of Youngblood Strikeforce #1.

      This new rendition of Glory has peeked my interest if only because it is LIGHTYEARS away from what Awesome Entertainment was doing with her in the 90’s.

  3. I’ve got no history with the comic or much of the Extreme stuff. But that cover just screams buy me, buy me now!

  4. I know about Ross Campbell, so how come I’ve never heard of this book?

    Also, what kind of dead inside weirdo talks to a superbeing as she’s DESTROYING a guy (I don’t care that he’s a Nazi; it’s still in the ick category) and tossing his corpse?
