John Svedese Out as Co-Owner, Chief Creative Officer, Patrick Hickey Jr. Becomes Sole Owner of Legacy Comix
As of today John Svedese is out as Co-Owner and Chief Creative Officer of Legacy Comix. And I didn’t see this coming at all.
You can read the official Legacy Comix release, but here are the highlights as I see them with the commentary you never asked for.
Coming this summer from Legacy Comix, writer Dan Evans, and artist Joshua Adams comes the Godfoe Universe. Joshua has previously worked with Legacy Comix on…
Dark Horse has been acquired by Embracer Group. What does this mean for the comics? Probably not much. A lot of acquisitions like this are about a holding company gathering IP so they can get some more profits. But that’s just me pulling thoughts out of thin air.
It takes a lot to get me this excited about a public domain character. Not that don’t think people should make Frankenstein or Sherlock Holmes things, but anyone can so there isn’t a novelty there.
So what does get me excited about these? A great creative team. A super unique concept as opposed to Yet Another Public Domain Character Story.
Or possibly getting to use the notes written by the creator of the property. Legacy Comix is bringing another banger to the table with bringing the Strokerverse into the fold.
I’ll come right out and say it, the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie had no right being as good as it was. I was expecting…
After some time away due to mysterious circumstances (more on that in a bit), A Dark Interlude is returning in January 2022 from Vault with Piotr Kowalski taking over art duties. The creative time now consists of writing from Ryan O’Sullivan, art from Piotr Kowalski, colors Vladimir Popov, letters by Andworld Design, and is designed by Tim Daniel.
In a wonderful move from such a new publisher, Legacy Comix is working with Lebeau Underwood on inks for the cover of Athos. You might know Lebeau’s work from The Union, Daredevil, and Scream: Curse of Carnage.
To put it bluntly, this is a big deal. For Legacy Comix to have someone of this caliber wanting to work with them before a book has even come out is a giant testament to the work that Patrick, John, and the entire team is doing over there.
To quote Patrick in a very short impromptu interview:
We ain’t done yet
Continuing with our love for Legacy Comix is a look at an interview with Legacy Comix Editor in Chief and writer of Condrey, Kroom, and The Job. Patrick Hickey Jr is someone who is hungry for success and won’t let anyone get in his way. He even fired his own children from the role of Chief Cuteness Officer!
Play Comics is a proud supporter of Legacy Comix and all of the creators over there. So it makes perfect sense that we’d want to make sure you know who is working on those comics.
That’s why we want to make sure that you can check out the profiles they have over there. First up is Afrim Gjonbalaj, writer of Legend of the Night Owl.
