France’s Greatest American Hero?!?!?

French comics publisher, Organic Comix, will be releasing a truly fine graphic novel in the coming months entitled, ShieldMaster.  Co-written by Jim Simon and Jean Depelley, and beautifully illustrated by artist extraordinaire Reed Man.  Now if the name Jim Simon sounds a bit familiar, that’s because his father is non other than, Captain America co-creator, Joe Simon.  Now am I the only one who finds it a bit funny and ironic that a French publisher would be the one to be releasing a comic about a red, white and blue costumed hero created by a member of the Simon family?  Crazy, huh?  Well hopefully we here in the States won’t have to wait too long before a business savvy comics publisher releases this beauty in English.  But until then, you can preview the first five pages, in English, in the upcoming Panel to Panel: Exploring Words & Pictures book.  That’s right, P2P has got ShieldMaster!!  And to further enhance the comic, it’ll run alongside a great interview with Jim Simon.  Here’s a sneak peek:

Since beginning work on the ShieldMaster portion of the book, I’ve quickly become a HUGE fan of artist Reed Man’s work!  I’ve been lucky enough to preview quite a bit of his work from his native France, and can’t wait to see more.  I see big things in his future, and I look forward to the day when more American comic readers get to see his work.  Reed was kind enough, a couple of months back, to create an all-new image on a blank variant cover of Marvel Comics’ Avengers #1.  I’ve since eBayed that issue off in an early P2P fund raising campaign, but I was sure to keep a scan of his amazing image.  Enjoy!

Please don’t forget to support Panel to Panel on Kickstarter!  This book needs your support to become a reality.
