Joe Locastro over at Inside Anime Expo sat down to speak with writers F.J. DeSanto and Bradley Cramp to ask them some questions about Archaia’s new Black Label project, Cyborg 009. Originally written and illustrated by Shotaro Ishinomori, Cyborg 009 is the foremost name in Japanese superhero comics. DeSanto and Cramp will be adapting this incredible story for a Western audience, with Marcus To to illustrate.
Inside AX: What made now the right time for Cyborg 009? Is there something about the story that says “Pick me!”?
Bradley Cramp: Great stories never go out of style and with the wild success of recent hits like The Avengers and X-Men it just felt like the right time to introduce a broader, global audience to the incredible world and heroes Shotaro Ishinomori created with Cyborg 009.
