Before Ozymandias – Dynamite Signs Up Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt

Dynamite Entertainment has signed up the rights to Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt, one of the original Charlton Comics characters that inspired the characters of Watchmen. Specifically Ozymandias, currently being recreated by Len Wein and Jae Lee.

Coincidentally, Jae Lee has been doing a lot of cover work for Dynamite Entertainment lately. And he's one of the people drawing covers for his book. As is Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons, Alex Ross, John Cassaday and Ardian Syaf.

While Charlton Comics was sold to DC Comics, Peter Cannon creator Pete Morisi kept his rights, an early example of creator ownership. He has previously licensed those rights to DC, but it seems that this time Dynamite stepped up.

And Alex Ross collaborator Steve Darnell will be returning to comics to write the book with Ross, while Jonathan Lau draws the book. Take a look at some cover and art…
