    No, just the opposite. They thought they had gotten the rights to the character when they acquired Charlton but turned out his creator had never actually relinquished the rights. So Peter Cannon was quickly pulled from the DCU. So the closest DC can come to using him is the Alan Moore pastiche Ozymandias.

    Gotta love the irony that DC basically got around the rights by creating a one-shot knock off that they never planned to use again.

    I thought that Ozymandias was Judo Master. But, yup, Charlton sold DC fenced goods.


    I read it. I have no previous familiarity with Peter Cannon; this issue didn't strike me as a must-have glad-I-got-it issue. It was good; I read a lot of good comics, and it didn't stand out to me...BUT: I am left definitely interested in next issue. What stands out for me, is Cannon's attitude, which, in his genre, I find refreshing and I'm more than willing to see how this is played out.
    Kieron Gillen is the main reason that I am interested in this.

    It seems quite "meta" so far.

    issue 2 shipped this week. I have purchased, but not yet read, a copy. (But, quickly flipping through leads me to think that this issue is very "meta".)
