Image Comics has announced it will publish a new edition of The Mighty, by Peter J. Tomasi, Keith Champagne, Chris Samnee, and Peter Snejbjerg. The dark superhero story was originally published as a limited series by DC Comics in 2009 and later collected as a single volume by Dark Horse Comics (see “Review: 'The Mighty’ TP”). The story features Alpha One, the only superhero in the world, whose public persona is very different from the way he and his private police force operate behind the scenes.

The Image edition will collect all 12 issues of the original series, including three hard-to-find eight-page stories, plus bonus material such as sketches and scripts. The 336-page paperback, with a new cover by Dave Johnson, will be available in comic shops on September 28 and in bookstores on October 4 with an MSRP of $24.99.
