A New Creative Team and a Giant Dragon Arrive in ‘A-Force’ #5 [Preview]
A-Force #5 begins a new storyline, and introduces a very exciting new creative team. Kelly Thompson, writer of IDW's Jem and the Holograms, has been co-writing with G. Willow Wilson since the second issue, but with the fifth she takes over as sole writer. Meanwhile Ben Caldwell, recently of DC's Prez, is the new artist. Caldwell's versions of the main characters are unique and lovely, and he also does an excellent giant dragon (which is relevant to the plot of #5, it turns out).
This has been a fun book since the beginning, but with the origin arc out of the way and a stable creative team on board, I could not be more excited to see where A-Force goes from here.
Here's the official word from Marvel:
