Four years ago, Dave Ryan was posting pages from his new planned comic World Wide Warriors, with art by Allan Goldman. Last year he launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise money to publish in print. He didn't get nearly enough. It didn't stop them though. And in May, from Red Anvil Comics Group, they will be bringing the first issue to a wider audience through this Wednesday's Diamond Previews. We have the solicitation for the first issue.

And courtesy of the Indiegogo campaign, a full preview as well… and a word regarding the journey…
World Wide Warriors is a good, old fashion diverse superhero genre book honoring the classic Claremont/Cockrum Uncanny X-Men with a JLA vibe to it and a sprinkle of Watchmen. Allan Goldman and I started working on this title a few years ago and with the help of colorist Tony Brandão and lettering by my lovely wife Nilda, we have nearly 4 issues finished to date.
