2000AD's Kek-W and Bulletproof Coffin's Shaky Kane have a new Image comic book on the way in July.

An homage to the classic comics, CAP'N DINOSAUR pulls inspiration from mail-order-advertisements found in comic series of the 1950s and 1960s. When a mysterious drowned man falls out of the clear blue sky, The Cap'n and Honey Moon follow a trail which leads them to a deserted amusement park, but what they find will take readers' breath away.

"Half the fun of old comic books were the mail order adverts," said Kane. "So I figured that if the mail order adverts were to somehow feature in the story itself, well then you'd get the full fun!"

"Shaky and I are trying to channel a free-wheeling old school spirit—harness the strangeness that used to infect comics back in the late 50s and early 60s," elaborated Kek-W. "We want to inject some fun back into things. Reality is overrated!"

A nice bit of light'n'brighty comics for the summer sun, it seems!
