The Glory# 0 Story Web page has been reworked. These scans were done over 12 years ago when file sizes needed to be kept small for the web. Unfortunately, the image quality is poor. I've re-cropped some of the images and standardized their size a little more. I'm sure the added processing didn't improve the images, but even the original scans weren't great. The story can be downloaded as a pdf.

The restored & rebuilt web page is here:

The following posts will allow you to see the story here.

If I remember right from one of the interviews, Trina Robbins was going to write or draw the Glory monthly. I wonder how far she got now that you mention Glory #0 here.

I'm not thinking she got very far at all. I'm pretty sure that Overstreet Comic Book Monthly #18 was the last Defiant story content that saw print since Defiant "terminated all employees and ceased publication of all comics on August 31, 1994."

I find it unlikely that she'd started writing anything.

Just read this. Good that its posted here. So, it sounds like this story ended right around the time DEFIANT ended?

The links were working, but I've decided to replace the photobucket images. I also noticed that only pages 1 through 4 were posted for the Glory story. I've added pages 5 through 8. I guess at some point I need to rescan the story pages. The scans I have are lousy. Even the ones Gunter Bower scanned are not good. I guess it's readable.

Merged two duplicate topics that were posted two years apart. Deleted duplicate posts.

8 pages professionally bound?
Seems like a lot of effort for something so small.
Who is doing it? George?

Are you sure it's not Liefeld's Glory character?

Corvette Jim posted a skewed image of a Glory #0 cover on Facebook. I do not know the source of the image he posted. It could be an over sized promo card product. There is no evidence that a stand-alone comic was ever published. I have unskewed the image he posted as best I could. The proportions may be off.
