CBR got there first, meaning by the time you read this preview of this week’s Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt #2, it’ll be all over the internet. Kieron Gillen and Caspar Wijingaard are back with their take on the old Charlton Comics character and bastard brother of Ozymandias, Peter Cannon. Spot the obvious Watchmen call-back in this preview too. Seems Gillen still hasn’t stopped toying with us.
Humanity is at a crossroads, between life and annihilation. The threat comes not from space, but from a place absolutely inconceivable to anyone other than Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt. Only he can take Earth’s remaining heroes to confront that which threatens us all…but when he knows so much more than they do, should he? Also: strike a light, how hot is Tabu now? This is what happens when you give “DREAM DADDY” as the main artistic direction.
Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #2 is out Wednesday the 27th of February from Dynamite.
