New Comics December 2004 (and after)
- From the latest PREVIEWS 14.10 (October 2004):
There are a lot of medieval-themed books this month but nothing specifically Arthurian. However, I came across a manga title that may be Arthurian.
Tokoyopop: Dragon Hunter Vol. 10 by Hong-Seock Seo. ISBN 1-59182-958-5
A character named Merlin asks Kok-Jung to accompany him on his quest to capture Siegfried's Dragon.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail: King Arthur Plush Chibi Doll. 9" tall doll from Toy Vault. Third in a series. [This may or may not be produced--PREVIEWS lists the "Tim the Enchanter" doll (solicited March 04) as being canceled due to lateness.]
From the latest DC IN DEMAND (October 04) in DC Comics with a December 04 coverdate:
At some unspecified date, DC will release a new series called SEVEN SOLDIERS to be written by Grant Morrison. The series is a 30-issue megaseries (30 issues!!!)--2 book-end issues and seven four-part miniseries--that continues from JLA: CLASSIFIED. The blurb notes, "Grant's been pretty secretive about the unlikely shining knights that he's drafting to protect Earth, but he assures us that his SEVEN SOLDIERS will be ready for victory starting in early 2005".
Also of note, DC has solicited a collected edition of THE SEVEN SOLDIERS OF VICTORY as part of its DC ARCHIVES line. More when information becomes available.
