When Skyman Met Obama

As announced at Rose City Comic Con, Dark Horse will publish a new superhero comic early next year from the pages of Captain Midnight.

Skyman, by

Joshua Hale Fialkov, Manuel Garcia

and Javier Bergantiño Menor. With the following variant cover by Freddie Williams II and Dan Scott

After an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Captain Midnight, a drunken Skyman accidentally kills an innocent man! Turns out he's not only an overly patriotic zealot; he's also a dangerous PR nightmare. Needing a new face for their initiative ASAP, the Skyman Program turns to US Air Force Captain Eric Reid: a wounded veteran on the ropes, looking for a new lease on life. Reid must fight off his personal demons to have any chance of surviving the potentially deadly initiation.

You know, Fialkov became famous this year, for walking off the Green Lantern comic after refusing to kill off DC's most high profile black character John Stewart.

I just hope nothing nasty happens to Obama…
