Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross will team for the first time since 1993's Marvels on Kirby Genesis, a project expanding on Jack Kirby's creations.

"If you look up 'dream come true' in the dictionary, it's defined as 'working with Alex Ross on a big, epic project featuring dozens of Kirby characters,' In my dictionary, at least," Busiek said.

"Jack Kirby was the premier creative force in American comics history. And to have the chance to work with his creations in their purest form -- some who've been seen before and some who haven't, from the Ninth Men to Galaxy Green to Tiger 21 to Silver Star -- and to build a new world and a grand story with them, is the kind of opportunity and challenge I couldn't possibly turn down. When we started talking about this, there was just so much stuff, so many great ideas, that I was confused as to where we could possibly start. But then Alex described one image -- a single moment -- and that was all it took to make me say, 'Got it. I see the whole story now. Man, this is going to be fun.'

"And it is. Stand back. We're gonna need the room."

"One thing that Kurt and I have always shared is our love for Jack Kirby's comics and legacy," Ross said. "The Kirby: Genesis project is a way to repay the impact this one man's creativity has had in shaping our lives. I'm excited to be plotting this adventure with Kurt as well as to be contributing to some of the interior art. This epic will be an ambitious assembly of every Kirby design we can lay our hands on."

DC Comics has announced two projects for its Batman family of titles.

Writer Paul Cornell is teaming artist Jimmy Broxton on Knight and Squire, a six-issue mini-series spotlighting the London counterparts to Batman and Robin.

Here's how DC describes the book:

"When the barriers preventing an all-out battle in a secret city populated by heroes and villains alike are lifted, all hell breaks loose and only the Knight and Squire can step in to put things write. But can the tandem keep the peace between friends and foe?"

Covers are by Yanick Paquettte.

Bruce Wayne: The Road Home is serious of one-shots that, according to DC, "cover the city of Gotham and beyond, from Dick Grayson and Damian to the Birds of Prey to Red Robin to Commissioner Gordon."

Creators include Adam Beechen, Fabian Nicieza, Mike Barr, Pere Perez, Ramon Bachs, Marc Andreyko, Cliff Richards and Bryan Q. Miller. The books will feature a connecting, 8-part cover by Shane Davis.
