Brian Michael Bendis And Dark Horse Present A New Edition Of ‘Fortune And Glory’

by Brendan M. Allen

Before co-creating Miles Morales, Wakanda Forever’s Ironheart, and Jessica Jones, before the triumphant successes with Secret Invasion, Daredevil, Superman, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Invincible Iron Man,… before the original series Powers, Scarlet, Cover, and The Ones

Before all these, Brian Michael Bendis was a hungry young cartoonist about to take his first step into the shark-filled swimming pool that is the American motion picture industry. The harsh lessons that he learned along the way–and the unforgettable people that he met–are set down for the ages in Fortune and Glory, his hilarious autobiographical account of Hollywood development hell.

Written and illustrated by Bendis, with colors by Matthew Wilson, this new edition of Fortune and Glory collects the three-issue miniseries and includes an introduction by Paul Dini, a gallery of promotional art, and interviews from Bendis’ archives. 

Fortune and Glory Volume 1 TPB will be available in comic shops April 5, 2023 and in bookstores April 18, 2023.

A new volume of Fortune and Glory also begins this January on Brian Michael Bendis’ Substack, Jinxworld.
