Is there still a chance that Genndy Tartakovsky‘s long-gestating Luke Cage miniseries might finally be published? According to Marvel Comics‘ Senior Vice President of Publishing Tom Brevoort, it’s still a possibility .
“Sure,” Brevoort wrote on Tumblr in response to a fan who asked whether Marvel is still interested in releasing Tartakovsky’s comic. “He should reach out to me.”
The creator of “Dexter’s Laboratory” and “Samurai Jack,” Tartakovsky recently revealed he’s ready and willing to complete his four-part “Luke Cage” miniseries for Marvel.
“Cage!” began development in 2007, but eventually stalled. However, Tartakovsky recently told IGN that he has not only written and drawn much of the series — he’s eager to see it through to completion.
“The deal was, I agreed to do the comic as long as I had no schedule, and I actually finished all the pencils and part of the inking, and it was just a matter of continuing on,” the animator shared. “Then I think I got into ‘Sym-Bionic Titan,’ and then into the features, and then I got too busy — and I think my contact at Marvel left.
“I actually just found them last week, all my pencils, and I was like, ‘Oh, this still stands up! It’d be fun to finish it.'”
Luke Cage has no comic series at the moment, although he will appear in his own Netflix series starring Mike Colter in 2016.
