Marvel NOW! Sam Humphries And Ron Garney Team For Teased ‘Killers’ Title In January
As Marvel closes a week that's been highlighted by a second wave of teasers for its Marvel NOW! initiative, the publisher has provided ComicsAlliance with a first look at an image highlighting another new creative team taking over as yet unidentified title. Writer Sam Humphries will be teaming with artist Ron Garney on a book that's being teased with a graphic that, like the others, simply features one enigmatic word: Killers.Marvel NOW! is publishing plan whereby Marvel Comics will launch (or in several cases, relaunch) new ongoing series nearly every week between October 2012 and February 2013. While not a reboot of its long-running narratives and mythologies, Marvel NOW! will see several series such as Iron Man and Captain America and Thor launch or relaunch with #1 issues. Naturally, Marvel NOW! brings with it cosmetic changes for Marvel's most popular characters and a disruption of the status quo for many series, perhaps most dramatically in the form of reassigning its most popular writers and artists to different Marvel franchises for the first time in many years. You can read more about the initiative in our interview with Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort.
Humphries' recent work on such Marvel titles as Ultimates and John Carter: Gods of Mars has been well received, so it should come as no surprise that the publisher is giving him more titles to work on. And Garney is of course a fan-favorite and longtime Marvel artist, having worked on Hulk, Daredevil, Captain America and, most recently, Wolverine.
As for the image itself, it's not clear exactly what the title might be, but that's what the comment section is for! Care to take a guess?
