- In February, DC Comics imprint Vertigo will finally reprint Flex Mentallo by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely. Vertigo unveiled a new piece of artwork by Quitely that will serve as the cover to the new deluxe edition. Long regarded as one of the finest superhero comics ever published, heavily annotated online, and subject of much study, the work has been out of print since its initial publication in 1996 due to a lawsuit with bodybuilder Charles Atlas’s company. Atlas claimed that the title character infringed on his image, but DC successfully argued that Flex Mentallo’s origin was a parody of Atlas’s famous print ad, “The Insult That Made a Man Out of Mac“. Despite its victory, DC had decided not to reprint the book and original issues of it often go for $30 or more each on eBay,
though most who’ve read it at this point have done so via scanned copies from BitTorrent. When the new deluxe edition is finally published in February, it will leave Alan Moore’s Marvelman/Miracleman as one of the last great superhero stories still waiting to be reprinted (though Marvel is clearly working on that, too).
