Looks like they did Dr Spektor too!
Dunno 'bout anyone else, but I was real glad Valliant didn't bring back Spektor or Samson in the 90's.

>I thought they looked pretty well done and worked well to raise the profile of the characters.
Well.... I think this is where I differ from most of hardcore fandom. I see myself as the audience, and as such have no personal investment in any “franchise.” I don’t read out of loyalty, obligation, inertia.... I read ‘cos I like the stuff. To that end I don’t see the need for proliferation of what I like, except to facilitate more reading. A lot of time when something is brought back it’s done with an eye for a modern audience.... which is fine, but almost everything is a product of it’s era, and modernizing invariably changes it’s character; making it into something different.
....which isn’t to say it HAS to happen like that: Magnus was pretty close to the original comic in scope and idea.... but more often than not you get something askance. (Turok, with more than a dash of Jurassic Park.) An X-Filed Spektor would have made me cry, as would a more gritty Samson.
I may pick this up, I had a couple of the Gold Key DS comics when I was a kid and I loved them. My kind of Dark Shadows.
