The Twelve ..... return!

Marvel Comics is pulling some of their crustier heroes out of mothballs for a 12 issue series that revives a group not seen since the World War II years when the company was called Timely Comics. Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski is writing the comic book mini-series called simply "The Twelve" with art chores provided by engaging talent Chris Weston. Early indications are that the dozen characters featured in the book were kidnapped by Nazis during the closing days of the war and then placed in suspended animation following the fall of the Third Reich. Here, courtesy of Newsarama, is a sneak peek at half of "The Twelve."
