Exclusive: First look at Dark Horse's Magnus, Robot Fighter

Dark Horse is bringing Russ Manning's classic man vs. robots tale back to comics this August with a new series from writer Jim Shooter and artist Bill Reinhold, and here's an exclusive look.

From the official solicitation:

The continent-spanning city of North Am is a miracle of ingenuity and ambition, a technological paradise where "milespires" pierce the clouds and robots perform virtually all labor, freeing humankind to pursue leisure and bliss. But in the shadows of the sun-drenched towers, human mobsters use robot muscle "thug-bots" to terrorize the citizenry of North Am. Human trafficking, illegal psychoactive substances, violent crime, and corrosive corruption are suddenly epidemic in the glittering utopia, with only the mighty Robot Fighter to stand against them. When a wealthy heiress is kidnapped, Magnus is drawn into the mob's deepest sanctuary, where Magnus faces the fight of his life against the immensely powerful half robot, half man known as Big Guns.

I like the concept always have but the whole Shirt/skirt thing has GOT TO GO!!!! Sorry. You can leave Dr. Solar alone but the retro look for a futuristic comic is killing me. Always felt the charatcer needed an updated look.
