Marvel Comics has announced a new Thunderbolts comic book will be released starting in May from writer Jim Zub, with art by Sean Izaakse.
“Redeeming Justice … Like Lightning! The All-New Thunderbolts!” states Marvel.com. “Spinning out of DEVIL’S REIGN, Jim Zub and Sean Izaakse introduce a new iteration of the iconic THUNDERBOLTS this May.”
Details include that Hawkeye will lead the new team based out of NYC which also includes Spectrum, America Chavez, Power Man, Persuasion and includes the debut of a new character, Gutsen Glory, an experienced cyber-soldier.
“This May, New York City will have its own authorized team of superheroes in THUNDERBOLTS #1!” announced Marvel.com “Rising out of the destruction of DEVIL’S REIGN, this all-new lineup of Thunderbolts will star in a limited series by superstar creative team, writer Jim Zub and artist Sean Izaakse. Zub previously penned an action-packed run of the series in 2016 and now returns to tell the adventures of a new Hawkeye-led Thunderbolts that includes favorites like Spectrum, America Chavez, Power Man, and Persuasion plus the exciting debut of Gutsen Glory, an experienced cyber-soldier seeking new glory!”
The site continues: “In the aftermath of Devil’s Reign, the Big Apple has big problems, and it’s up to a new group of Thunderbolts to turn things around. But when Clint Barton gets tasked with heading up this team and proving they can go toe-to-toe with anything the Marvel Universe can throw at them, the first opponent he’s going to have to face is himself.”
“Writing Thunderbolts was my first in-universe work for Marvel and Sean Izaakse’s first Marvel project as well, so getting to launch a new version of the team here with him on the team’s 25th anniversary year is an absolute honor,” Zub said. “I am so pumped to put Clint Barton, Monica Rambeau, America Chavez and a host of others through trials and tribulations aplenty as New York’s only official super hero team. A lot of the ideas being unleashed in this series are things I’ve been wanting to do for years. Big action and big fun, drama, comedy and, of course, a few twists befitting the team that always keeps readers on their toes. Sean’s artwork has never looked better and he’s bringing his incredible skills to bear on stunning comic pages and eye-catching designs for new characters we’re adding to the mighty Marvel Universe. Our creative team is firing on all cylinders, so get ready for ‘Justice, Like Lightning’ to strike every single issue!”
