Former Marvel Comics Rival "Atlas Comics" To Be Relaunched!

Martin Goodman's grandson, Jason, is bringing back the short lived 1970's comic book company with the first two titles set to be unveiled at New York Comic-Con next month! Read on for all the details...
Martin Goodman sold Marvel to Cadence Industries in 1970 with the promise that his son Chip would stay on as editorial director. Stan Lee (Martin's nephew by marriage) decided to let Chip go though, the two decided to start a new company to beat it's rival.

This was "Atlas Comics". Many new heroes were created including the likes of The Scorpion, The Cougar, Ironjaw and The Grim Ghost. However, Atlas couldnt quite beat the already established heroes published by Marvel and DC and soon folded.

Now, Deadline are reporting that the company will be brought back by his grandson beginning with the relaunch of The Grim Ghost and Phoenix. "Although my grandfather eventually sold Marvel, he insisted on keeping Atlas Comics in the family," Jason said. "As a result of his vision, Atlas Comics is the largest individually-held library of comic book heroes and villains on the planet. We have 28 titles and hundreds of characters imagined by some of the greatest minds in the industry."

Comic writer J.M. DeMatteis will be editor-in-chief. It's worth remembering that now comic book movies are such a money earner for studios, we could see many of these Atlas characters sold off to star on either the big or small screen especially if their upcoming return to comic books is a success!

Traditional marketing has been challenged by the digital marketing in today's world of smart phones and laptops. People are available more online than on television sets or outside hanging out with friends. The culture has become such that people like to shop online, talk online, and eat online.
