Jusko, the current cover artist on Dynamite’s Warlord of Mars series, was picked to maintain the authentic comic book feel of the packaging by developing a new illustration for the lead character. In addition to producing numerous covers over his 35-year career, Jusko was also a big fan of Captain Action as a child in the late 60s.
Captain Action is a 12-inch action figure who has the ability to transform into various comic book and pop culture icons by changing into different costumes. The new Captain Action toys, produced by Round 2, LLC, will feature a Captain Action figure and costume sets for Marvel comic book heroes Captain America and Spider-Man.
The new line will debut at New York Comic Con, to be held October 13-16.
