A mechanical terror has descended upon numerous cities and the world’s greatest scientists are disappearing. Our only hope: Science Ninja Team Gatchaman! As they battle these machinations from the international terrorist organization known as Galactor, their strength, willpower, and even vehicles are pushed to the absolute limit. If they fail…who’s waiting in the wings to take their place? The first exciting issue in an ongoing series that expands upon the original anime series!

The first of the new GATCHAMAN is on the way, and is officially now available for pre-order! We’re thrilled to kick off an all-new story arc this Free Comic Book Day with the exclusive Gatchaman #0, featuring a cover by Chris Samnee (Thor), followed by Gatchaman #1 and the exciting one-shot Gatchaman—Ken: Deathmatch in June!

The ongoing Gatchaman series features a masterful collaboration between writer Cullen Bunn (A Legacy of Violence) and comics artist Chris Batista (Justice League), with Cover A by Inaki Miranda (Godzilla: Here), colors by Carlos Lopez and letters by Buddy Beaudoin

“Was I born to write this series? I’m not sure, but I was certainly forged in the Phoenix-technique fires over the course of my life to be here now. GATCHAMAN is beloved by so many, and it is humbling and exciting and a little scary to be telling new stories in that world now. I’m emboldened by the amazing people I’m working with–Chris Batista, Tommy Lee Edwards, Steve Orlando, and the Mad Cave Studios team. Each and every one of us loves these characters and this world. And we’ve had such tremendous support from the Tatsunoko team. This isn’t just an adaptation. We’re not just painting by numbers. These are new, in-continuity tales with exciting, game-changing elements that enhance and expand this already rich storyline.”

Cullen Bunn, writer

“The cartoon that left the most lasting impact on me as an artist,  is without any doubt, Battle of the Planets aka Gatchaman. It was like nothing else, so vibrant, dynamic and unique. As much as I loved the heroes of Marvel and DC, there was just something cooler about the Gatchaman team. I’ve been obsessed ever since. Gatchaman has always been at the very top of my creative bucket list…a dream project that could never happen….until now. I could never have imagined we would be doing this project in conjunction with Tatsunoko studios and with the amazing team at Mad Cave Studios. I am truly honored to be a part of this incredible creative team that shares the same love for Gatchaman that I do. I hope fans get the same jolt of electricity I get whenever I read the new script from Cullen. I’m equally thrilled and terrified to be a part of the return of this unmatched and timeless property!”

Chris Batista, artist
