The announcement went out Friday so it's official: I'm writing a new THUNDERBOLTS monthly series for Marvel Comics!
Working with the Avengers editorial team and artist Jon Mailin to bring this team back into the spotlight is going to be a blast.
Check out Jon's work here on DA:
have been around in a few different configurations since 1997, but if you've never read their adventures I'll give you a quick overview: They're a team of heroes who haven't always been heroic. Many of them are actually villains in search of redemption and the tough choices they make will define their heroic or villainous legacy.
The new team, lead by the Winter Soldier
, will be emerging out of an Avengers-centric event starting in April called Standoff
. Reading Standoff will be a sweet introduction to the new Thunderbolts, but I'm also aiming to make the first issue of Thunderbolts
very new reader friendly so you can get on board without needing an encyclopedic knowledge of the Marvel Universe. If you've been a longtime Marvel reader, you'll find lots to enjoy here. If you only know the Winter Soldier from the Captain America
movie, this will still be easy to dig into.
I can't go into any more detail beyond the above right now, but expect more details soon.
As always, thanks for the enthusiasm and support!
