"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
A few years ago a crossover project called War of the Independents was announced, featuring a wide variety of comic book characters from different publishers, including the Savage Dragon, Madman, Cerebus, ShadowHawk, Shi and many more (you can find a longer list here). Spearheaded by Dave Ryan, the project at one time was originally supposed to come out from Arcana in 2008.
It’s been a few years since I’ve seen anything on the ambitious project, but it is still be alive — Ryan has started a Kickstarter page to raise money for it. The page also reveals that the six-issue full-color comic is now being published by Red Anvil Comics and will debut at New York Comic Con in October.
