Dark Horse and Dynamite Proudly Announce CAPTAIN ACTION CAT: THE TIMESTREAM CATASTROPHE #1, Debuting in April 2014
From the Eisner and Harvey award-winning, New York Times best-selling, famous cartoonists Art Baltazar and Franco comes the crossover epic event of a lifetime! Finally, Captain Action Cat meets Action Cat and the characters from Aw Yeah Comics! Also crossing over with Dark Horse Comics characters such as Ghost, X, Captain Midnight, and the Occultist, this series promises the typical zaniness that the creators of Tiny Titans are known for. True story!
“All I have to say is: Wow!” says cowriter/artist Art Baltazar. “I am amazed at the comics which we get to create sometimes! Captain Action action figures have been a classic American toy forever, and now that he is back, the world will be a better place! It’s an honor to be working so close to this iconic character . . . even if our version is a cat. Aw Yeah!”
“I feel so lucky to be in this industry and that people are willing to let us play with their toys,” adds cowriter Franco! “This one means quite a bit to me personally because this crossover event features something we created—Action Cat from our own Aw Yeah Comics--which we get to cross over with Captain Action (as a cat) and the heroic crew from Dark Horse. ‘Wow’ is an understatement! Every year, I think we cannot top what we did before . . . and I am proven wrong, as this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever had the privilege to work on! Aw Yeah, Dynamite!”
“Art and Franco have been having a blast with the Itty Bitty Hellboy series. We loved their treatment of Hellboy and I’m particularly eager to see what mayhem they’ll inflict on our superheroes,” says Dark Horse president Mike Richardson. “Ghost and X teamed with Action Cat and Captain Action? Who would have thought?”
“I’ve gotta say, we’ve had some fun, high octane, cataclysmic, unbelievable crossovers through the years,” states Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “But this crossover will be the most fun! What Art and Franco have put together is just incredible! And did I mention fun? Aw Yeah!”
