    Default RED One: Russian Spy is Americas greatest Hero -- where did it go?

    Anyone else recall this from a few years back with art by Dodson?
    It was a time period book set in the late 70s. They published 4 issues, 2 a year but I've seen nothing in solicits since then.
    I just did a bit of googling and couldn't find anything.

    So just the 4 issues? If so that's a shame. I'd wager it was due to insisting on publishing it the 'European Way' as Dodson described in in one of the issues.

    Ah, that would explain it then. Thanks.
    I guess the Dodson't didn't want to purchase rights and make a go of it on their own with a more regular schedule.

    That's not how it works in France. But perhaps another publisher will pick it up and give them the opportunity to continue?

    It's Image. Who did you figure owns the rights if not the creators?

    I mean nothing on its own website says anything about it being canceled. Also the issues due ship annual let's hope it will make a return but unlikely. Also the copyright seems to have been updated for 2018 on the site so maybe a little hope

    The dialogue is awkward in a number of places.

    It didn't seem like natural dialogue sometimes.

    They are releasing 4 “books” two over-sized issues per book. We should get two more before December 2018. Then the final two issues in 2019.... barring any complications.

    Whew! I really enjoyed this series - glad to know that it's not over. I'll take the quality over quantity approach any day, plus the double-sized issues give you quite a lot to dig into.
