Here’s another lost comic: a Killraven miniseries by the dynamic duo of Robert Kirkman and Rob Liefeld. Although FIVE issues were finished, it has never been printed and doesn’t look that will change any time soon. In 2007 Kirkman told CBR all about the series:
It won’t be just Martian adversaries opposing Killraven and his allies fight for freedom. “There’s kind of a twist at the end of issue one where we see that he’s going to be going up against somebody that’s fairly familiar to Marvel Universe fans,” Kirkman explained. “There are a number of characters that would still be around years into the future.”
“Killraven” will be a story that’s packed with both superhero and post-apocalyptic action. “I’m a big fan of end of the world type stories,” Kirkman remarked. “So there’s going to be a lot of those elements in there. And Rob is known for balls-to-the-wall action comics, which is what we’re definitely doing here.”
Although the king of the Walking Hollywood now, Kirkman was a bit of an underperformer at Marvel, so don’t look for this to be resurrected, even if Kirkman’s name alone might sell a few books. [Via Liefeld’s Twitter]
