Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant Team Returning For A Second Miniseries:
Sad about the miniseries Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant ending with this week’s issue? Don’t be: a new miniseries from the same writing team is coming this March.
Titled Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace, the new, four-issue miniseries will once again be written by Iman Vellani and Sabir Pirzada, aka the star and writer of Ms. Marvel’s Disney+ show, respectively. Along for the artistic ride is Scott Godlewski, who takes over from Carlos Gómez and Adam Gorham. Gómez will provide the covers for the series.
Said Pirzada via press release: “It’s been an absolute joy and privilege to get to co-write Ms. Marvel with Iman Vellani, who has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is THE voice of Ms. Marvel on the page just as much as she is on the screen. We are excited to report that Kamala’s mutant journey will continue on in MS. MARVEL: MUTANT MENACE. It will be Kamala’s most dangerous ride yet.”
In the new mini, now that the world knows Ms. Marvel is a mutant, she’ll return to Jersey City, where it seems like the community might not be on board with their hometown hero. The press release also promises X-Men heroes, villains, and the return of a fan-favorite ex from a previous Ms. Marvel series.
The first issue hits stores on March 6, 2024.
Stranger Things Coming To Free Comic Book Day:
Dark Horse Comics has announced their offering for next year’s Free Comic Book Day, and it’s a good one. The issue will include a new Hellboy story by Mike Mignola, as well as a brand new story set in the Stranger Things universe.
According to Dark Horse, the Hellboy story is titled “The Fortune Teller.” Written by Mignola with art by Márk László, and colors by Dave Stewart, “a murder investigation leads to a mysterious Romanian fortune teller who is way too interested in Hellboy’s past and future.”
The Stranger Things story is written by Derek Fridolfs, with art by Jonathan Case. Titled “Deliver Me From Evil,” “Argyle and Jonathan swap fantastical and scary tales as they make one last pizza delivery for the night.”
The issue hits — when else — on Free Comic Book Day, which will be held next year on May 4.
Marvel and IDW Veterans Form New Comics Company:
A new comic book company? It’s more likely than you might think. And this one comes from a few folks with experience. Specifically, former Marvel publisher John Nee is working with three IDW veterans to form Pan-Universal Galactic Worldwide aka, PUG-W.
In fact, the company has already launched one successful project: Conan: The Barbarian – Colossal Edition on Zoop. The book collects stories by John Buscema, Barry Windsor-Smith, Gil Kane, and others. And as of this recording, the project is asking for $25,000, and is already at over $73,000 funded. So, that’s pretty good.
As reported by ICv2, the next project up is Signa, a comic by Nee that will launch on Kickstarter in January. After that? The universe is the limit.
