Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Robert Rodi (Thor: For Asgard, Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers) will be writing Kirby: Genesis-Dragonsbane, which will debut in comic stores in January of 2012.  Fritz Casas (Queen Sonja) will provide the interior art for Dragonsbane #1, while the main Kirby: Genesis artists, Alex Ross and Jack Herbert will each provide a cover for the first issue of Dragonsbane.
The new comic series will chronicle the saga of Sigurd Dragonsbane, the greatest champion in all Valhalla.  Based on character concepts and designs by Jack Kirby, the new Dragonsbane series draws back the curtain on the astonishing mythical underpinnings of the Kirby universe.

Rodi is clearly enthused at the prospect of developing this portion of the Kirbyverse, noting “Dragonsbane is an exciting chance to take this vast assemblage of concepts and characters direct from the King's fertile imagination, throw them all together in a world both compellingly familiar and perilously new, and watch the sparks fly.  I'm no stranger to tackling subjects both legendary and epic, but this one has a wonderfully fresh and vital feeling to it.  People often refer to the joy of playing in Kirby's "sandbox"; well, this is a corner no one's played in before, and we're having the time of our lives building some seriously wild architecture there.”
