Mister Chameleon returns in May!

It's been nearly two years since I discovered (and later wrote about) Jonathan A. Gilbert's 1930's Mister Chameleon character in the pages of All-Smash Funnies #1.  CE Publishing had planned to include more of his stories in subsequent issues of All-Smash Funnies but those issues have yet to be released.

However, it was announced about a week ago that Mister Chameleon will finally return in the pages of Warren T. Montgomery's Will Lill Comics' Grafix Chronicles #3 next month.
RELEASE DATE: May 19th (digital and print via Indy Planet), 24 pages, b/w 
COVER: Marco Santiago
PRICE: $2.50 (print), $0.99 (digital) 
This issue features 2 short Mister Chameleon stories that were first printed in a small fanzine a decade ago. Each story created and written by Jonathan Gilbert and features the art of Seppo Makinen, David Owens, Mike Dougherty and R. Humble.

So two short stories, the first of which is the one from All-Smash Funnies.  But I don't believe I've managed to find other Mister Chameleon material, so the second story will be new to me.  Since Indyplanet is far more cooperative these days (even though my most recent order from them took almost two weeks to ship, at least I can actually place an order now!) I think this will be a print acquisition down the road.  Thanks to Will Lill Comics for making them available.
