The New Adventures of the Human Fly!

I guess I totally whiffed on this as it happened.

It was announced last year that the rights to the Human Fly character were acquired so that a movie based on the person who wore the suit as a daredevil could be produced. What I did not know at the time is that a comic book was also in production.  The poster above is in reference to the book's release at the San Diego Comic Con this past August.

You can order the 52 page book from Amazon.  I've included the solicitation below with both the front and back covers.  You can get larger versions of each by opening them in a new tab.
The Human Fly, Canada's stuntman superhero extraordinaire, returns to comics for the first time in nearly 35 years.
Edited by Michael Aushenker (El Gato, Crime Mangler), this crazy mix of action, humor, sci-fi and horror features stories by Aushenker, Tony Babinski and Steve Kriozere ("Femme Fatale") and art by original '70s Human Fly artists Bob Layton ("Iron Man"), Steve Leialoha ("Fables"), Don Perlin (co-creator of "Moon Knight"), Al Milgrom ("ROM: Spaceknight") as well as art by Gerry Talaoc ("The Unknown Soldier"), John Heebink ("Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D."), Jim Rugg ("Afrodisiac"), Steve Butler ("Web of Spider-Man"), Rafael Navarro ("Sonambulo"), Javier Hernandez ("El Muerto, Aztec Zombie"), famed letterer Janice Chiang ("Ghost Rider") and more!
Featured stories: "The Human Fly's Back," "Fly vs. Fly," "Other Worlds, Other Dimensions," and more! Join the exploits of the Human Fly as he tackles monsters, robots, time-travelling mad scientists, luchadors, psychotic computerworlds, and, of course, the greatest death-defying stunts ever attempted.... ....All while pursuing his side career as a rock guitar god. Metal!
Sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.
