COMICON.com: KELLY & PORTER TAKE ON JONNY QUEST AT DC : "Joe Kelly's next take on a classic Hanna-Barbera character for DC Comics will be Jonny Quest. According to Wizard # 170, perennial favorite boy action hero Quest is returning for five issues next year. Artist Howard Porter will be digitally painting the limited series. Kelly, who worked on the critically-acclaimed Space Ghost limited series, is a big fan of classic Hanna-Barbera characters. But that doesn't mean he doesn't have his own vision for the animated staples. He told Wizard this version of the preteen boy will be a 'significantly darker Jonny and you will find out how he got that way.'"

The idea of a "darker" Jonny Quest should just turn my stomach. But Joe Kelly completely sold the idea of a dark Space Ghost story, so I'm willing to go with him on this...

Yes, i am very much looking forward to this title. After Kelly's excellent run on JLE and the amazing Space Ghost, i am having high expectations to this title.

And digital painting? OOOoo yeah!
