Yes, I’m way behind on this one. But here are some photos from the panel where the stars of the classic Greatest American Hero tv show talked about their upcoming project: The Greatest American Hero Comic!
I was also able to sit down and talk to Robert Culp, Connie Selleca, and William Katt each about the upcoming venture. Unfortunately, the interviews on my digital recorder were extremely low quality, and I lost them.
The comic, which will be an updated take on the tv show, preview looks wonderful, and you keep watch for it here: http://catastrophiccomics.com/

My review of Rogue Angel: Teller of Tall Tales #1 can be read here: http://scifichick.com/2008/01/14/rogue-angel-teller-of-tall-tales-1/
Annja Creed is a part-time archeologist, part-time tv host of Chasing History’s Monsters, and full-time adventurer.
When Annja visits an old friend in the former mining town, of Virginia City, she is asked to assist with a dig involving Samuel Clemens’ work. But there are some who are against their exposing what could be an incredible discovery. And soon, Annja and her friend Rashmi find themselves fighting for their lives.
In this installment, we get Annja’s backstory with Joan of Arc’s sword from book 1, Destiny. For comic fans that don’t necessarily want to go out and read the book right away, this is a quick recap to catch up on what’s going on. With vivid portrayals of each character, this comic helps bring the story to life in a new and colorful way. Writer Barbara Randall Kesel has teamed up with artist Renae De Liz (and the rest of their team) to deliver a fantastic, adventure ride in a fun format.
