I look forward to turning lots of material from my podcasts and movies into 4-color extensions of what we do in other media. And I'm happy to do it with Dynamite - the Jersey-based comics giant!" states Writer/Director Kevin Smith.
"The relationship we have with Kevin is incredibly rewarding. His resume speaks for itself, as he has reinvigorated great comic characters like Daredevil and Green Arrow at Marvel and DC respectively, along with Green Hornet and Six Million Dollar Man here at Dynamite," states CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. "His talent brings fans to the industry, and when he asked if we would be a part of this event, of course, we said yes!"
