New Magnus, Turok and Solar comics from Dark Horse

Posted by

One of the biggest pieces of comics news from San Diego Comic-Con is that Dark Horse plans to create new comics with Gold Key characters, and they have tapped Jim Shooter to lead their creation.

Jim Shooter has said that these will be new imaginings of the classic characters, and not a direct continuation of either the original Gold Key versions or the versions seen in Valiant comics. While Jim Shooter may not be the writer for all of the new comics, he will be leading the creative direction.

The characters scheduled to come out from Dark Horse are Doctor Solar, Magnus, Robot Fighter, Turok, Son of Stone, and The Mighty Sampson.

Dark Horse has not announced any specific titles or a date of release, though they have said that these should be appearing by mid-2010. They may be less than a year away from being published.

Here is a list of news articles reporting this:

So what does this mean for Valiant? Clearly, these characters will not be part of any new Valiant Comics and Valiant Universe.

The flipside is that we will get new Magnus, Robot Fighter stories from Jim Shooter!

UPDATE! Here is video of the panel that announced these new comics, and announced Jim Shooter as the writer:

    thanks Js PLEASE REPLY Js

  • Hi Jason,

    All I know is that Dark Horse seems to have *plans* to release new comics of the Gold Key characters, including Turok.

    Dark Horse has scheduled a Magnus Robot Fighter/Doctor Solar comic to be released on Free Comic Book Day, so there will be new comics of those titles. If it is a success, I imagine that they will follow up with Turok, but that is just speculation.

    hello again I got the new free comice with magnus and solar, WOW looks soo cool. I think solar is great the way they have protrayed him and his way of doing things very neet as for magnus it’s OK. but I think solar will be the hit I dont really like the type of art in magnus BUT I will still be getting 1-5 of each comic and I bet in number one of each you will find a date for the release for Turok.
    I do hope they do a a good job with Turok and make him more a native indian and not a hollywood replica of a termanator. I did not like what Acclame did with turok. I think they should have lots of jungle shots and have him thnking the sperit of the animals he kills.(some times)
    also I do hope they dont do a duplicut of the old son of stone comics I hope they start with the begining of the story. by haveing andar there and start the series like the old stuff but kinda go there own way with the carature. I wish also they had white pages and did the comic kinda old looking like a lost story from ages ago. I dont like what people are doing with comics now adays all digital and supper clean cut and video game like. I like the earlyer Valiant art of Turok also I hope they call it Just Turok. not turok son of stone, or turok dino hunter I want somthing new but old in the same well thanks guy Js

  • Interesting. We just discussed this book tonight for the latest podcast, and we all thought the opposite, that Magnus was the winner, and Doctor Solar wasn’t as good. Anyway, our thoughts will be out soon.

  • Jason comments:

    do you remember the comic shadow hawk there was one called images of shadow hawk I hated that art work. I get a light sense of that art work from the new magnus. also I did like solar because he has Way more potential as a carature. there is only so much magnus can do as a person.
    in the valiant universe solar was a big part in the universe story line and he created mother god,and distroyed her. and with out mother god there would be no unity. do you remember when Xo’s suit got destroyed who what there to get eric a new one, it was solar.
    solar, magnus and turok may have there fates interlocked with this new series and I bet solar will be a huge part of it. if dark horse choses to put them together to fight somthing big. or save the world
    I found solar neeter with the page were he is punching the guy and you can see like 5 punches like the matrix and I loved the mention of the matrix and Neo.
    magnus was just that.. magnus nothing relly new BUT I did like the relation ship with his girl. I do like the old magnus and the beginning of the valiant series but not when he gets the bird and all that stuff. I vote for solar as a cooler careture and with more veriant of story lines he can be in. magnus will just be fighting another big robot. I have dedicated my self to the first 1-5 of each comic because I do like magnus I want to give dark horse a chance to WOW me. I will only pick one in the long run and that would be TUROK but I will still follow one of the others magnus or solar
    please if you hear of anything about Turok let me know asap

  • Jason comments:

    Hey guys Chris warner sent me Turok #1 before it came out. I got to wright a review for Turok #2 and it should be there so check it out it’s under Araknospider

  • I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required
    to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

  • After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.
    Is there a way you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

  • You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I
    am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get
    the hang of it!
