Ardden Entertainment Revives Atlas Comics

Ardden Entertainment has begun work on bringing back the historic Atlas Comics.

For those that don't know, Atlas Comics was the brainchild of Marvel Comics founder Martin Goodman, who created the line to one-up his old company. Unfortunately, the line flopped mere months after it began, with several titles changing direction after the first or second issues.

One of the highlights of that era would be Howard Chaykin's work on The Scorpion. A pulp adventure hero, The Scorpion who would serve as a prototype for the standard arrogant, hard-edged character type that Chaykin would later develop with Dominic Fortune.
