Look out world, guess who’s back! It’s the Black Terror! The Crusaders! The Owl! The Death-Defying Devil! Hey, wait a minute! Who are these guys?! Well, they’re the forgotten creations of several now-defunct comics companies from the ’30s and ’40s who, now that they’ve lapsed into the public domain (which means anyone can creatively nab them), are being reimagined courtesy of superstar artist Alex Ross for Dynamite’s Superpowers series. “I didn’t want to necessarily update anybody if there was no reason to do it,” says Ross. “It’s all about putting a little bit of a fresh coat of paint on it.” And now, before their triumphant return (er, “debut”?) in December, we get an exclusive preview comparing Ross’ sketches of each character’s original design with their all-new, full-color versions.
