Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers
Pacific Comics first titles, it lasted thirteen issues, plus a special, through January, 1984.
After the end of Pacific, no more was seen of Captain Victory, until Topps Comics attempted to revive the character as part of planned 5-issue mini-series, which only lasted one issue before Topps cancelled all of the 'Kirbyverse' books in 1994. The title is Victory and the 1st issue is from June 1994. This issue was a part of a more complex project named Secret City Saga.
More recently, TwoMorrows Publishing created a 'graphite edition' reprint of the first Captain Victory issue. The edition, in TwoMorrow's words, "presented [Captain Victory #1] as it was created (before it was broken up for the later Pacific Comics series), reproduced from copies of Jack's uninked pencils!"
In 2000, Jack Kirby’s grandson Jeremy Kirby launched Jack Kirby Comics, the fledgling company’s only offering being a three-issue retelling of Captain Victory, reordered and rescripted by Jeremy. The quality of issues, anyway, is judged fairly inferior of the originals, despite the interesting cover art. The title of the comic book is the same of the original of 1981. The 3rd issue was published exclusively on the web.
In February 2007, Erik Larsen reported that Image Comics planned to publish a completely recolored one volume collection of Jack Kirby's 14 issues of Captain Victory. In July of the same year, he announced that Image Comics would be publishing an all-new Captain Victory comic book featuring many of Jack Kirby's never-before-seen creations. The hardcover collection was scheduled to be released in November, 2007 (ISBN 1582408149); however, production issues delayed the hardcover, so that better source material could be located.
