Five Star Preview

A Sneak Peek at Lady Luck by Gary Gibeaut

Gary Gibeaut is hard at work on his story for Five Star Comics #2. The story will feature not one but two incarnations of Lady Luck, originally created by Will Eisner, Dick French, and Chuck Mazoujian for Smash Comics and now in the public domain. In his story, Gary's new Lady Luck meets up with her grandmother, the original Lady Luck, as they face down a gang of thugs and crooks. Anyone who knows the creators of Five Star Comics might also recognize Gary's fictional gang. Anyway, here's a sneak peek at Gary's story, in the penciling stage right now but soon in print!
