Matt Fraction is one of the comic book greats. The Eisner Award-winning writer behind such titles as The Invincible Iron Man, The Immortal Iron Fist, Hawkeye and Sex Criminals is currently hard at work on a thrilling new project for Image Comics with husband-and-wife duo of Terry and Rachel Dodson (Harley Quinn, Red One) titled Adventureman!

SYFY WIRE recently sat down with Fraction for a one-on-one interview for the upcoming title slated to arrive in comic book stores in 2018. Fraction previewed Adventureman! and chatted with us about the influences behind the title that include Golden Age comics and pulp serials (always a win-win combo).

"It's with Terry and Rachel Dodson and it is everything that I love about Image," Fraction said. "It is a big, broad genre comic when the genre is 'all of the above.' It's an adventure story and it stars a family. We want it to be our Raiders [of the Lost Ark], we want it to be our Hellboy, we want it to be our Tintin. It's world-spanning, globe-trotting, high-adventure kind in a very traditional way at its roots but it's done our way, but hopefully in a new way."

Okay, so that sounds like this is definitely going be a lot of fun. Check out what else Matt had to say about Adventureman!:
