Kieron Gillen’s critically acclaimed limited series Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt for Dynamite Comics is set to be collected in a deluxe oversized hardcover format this September. The ambitious series was well-received by fans and critics alike when it debuted at the beginning of 2019 with Gillen at the helm along with artist Caspar Wijngaard (Limbo, Assassin’s Creed), colorist Mary Safro (Drugs & Wires), and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou  (Lone Ranger, Shanghai Red). It also featured covers by Kris Anka (Runaways), Kevin Wada (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Chip Zdarksky (Daredevil), Sean Phillips (Criminal), Christian Ward (Thor), Paulina Ganucheau (Xena), and more.
The character served as the template for Alan Moore’s Ozymandias in Watchmen, alongside other characters inspired by Charlton Action Heroes. Gillen summed up his thoughts on the series succinctly, “This is the superhero comic I’m most proud of. It also has at least three funny jokes. This is all I’ve ever wanted.”
Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt Oversized Hardcover will be available in July for preorder and is slated for release in September.
