I was reading recently that there is some dispute over whether Peter Pan is public domain yet in America. The Walt Disney corporation, of all people, is who is making the argument that it IS public domain, while the owners of the copyright disagree. In any event, if Peter Pan WAS to be in the public domain, wouldn't he make a pretty darn good comic book?
What OTHER characters in the public domain would make for good comic books? Heck, which characters in the public domain do you think should get the Thor, Hercules Dracula and Ares treatment, and show up in comics as themselves?
