Call ‘em mid-season replacements.
Today Marvel has announced three additional titles in their line of Season One original graphic novels aimed at new audiences. Here’s the lineup:
Ant-Man: Season One by Tom DeFalco (Spider-Girl) and Horacio Domingues (Incorruptible), on-sale in July 2012
Hulk: Season One by Fred Van Lente (Alpha Flight, Herc) and Tom Fowler (Venom), on-sale in August 2012
Doctor Strange: Season One by Greg Pak (Astonishing X-Men, Red Skull: Incarnate) and Emma Rios (Osborn, Spider-Island: Cloak & Dagger), on-sale in September 2012
Some nice choices, right? Interesting, too, that they’re not sticking merely to the characters showcased on screen in Marvel’s The Avengers next year. While characters like Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four make plenty of sense, it’ll be interesting to see how the likes of Ant Man or Doctor Strange will fair.
Either way, Tom Fowler on a Hulk title? Sold.
