'The New Adventures of The Human Fly #1', from the makers of the upcoming film, and featuring the character based on the real-life stuntman (not seen in comics since the 1970's Marvel Comic series), is available via Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the Book Depository.

I was fortunate enough to have a short story in here, scripted by film scriptwriter Tony Babinski.
