Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill will be attending a conference, "Marshal Law and More", at the first Kapow! Comic Con in London, saturday the 9th at 10 am. More details here.

 

The independent American publisher Top Shelf had ceased last month to announce the release of its Marshal Law omnibus. Furthermore, it's now official (see Pat Mill Facebook page), DC Comics will handle the reprint of Marshal Law stories. Hopefully an edition that will be worthy of the long wait (2 years now)!

Pat Mills on march the third, 2011:

 

"Kevin O'Neill and I just signed up Marshal Law with DC Comics.

So they will be reprinting the existing material - in formats and on a schedule to be determined.

It's great to see Law being published by DC. It means our character is finally going to be seen by an entirely new generation of readers. A character who was the original and remains the strongest of all the critiques of super heroes. i think this is l because I really mean it - that is to say, I share Law's perspective and his angry desire to find a hero in a world that is supposedly littered with them. And of course that's doubly true for Kevin; so we encourage each other in our various visual and story excesses . DC's enthusiasm for such a hard core and uncompromising character who really lifts the lid on the world of costumed heroes is an encouraging sign of the changing publishing times we live in.

Whether Law ever gets a chance to later "interact" with the heroes of the DC Universe remains to be seen, but I can always dream."

 

For the record, in a 2009 article, Pat Mills confirmed that the Savage Dragon story would be coloured, and the Pinhead story re-coloured for the now cancelled Top Shelf oversize format omnibus.
