If there's one thing that we're definitely on the record as loving here at ComicsAlliance, it's task forces made up of color-coded heroes --- and it's even better if they all have some sort of specialty. And fortunately for us, we're only a week away from getting a new one in the form of Ashley Wood's String Divers.

Based on a line of action figures from Wood's 3A toys, String Divers follows the adventures of a team that sets out to battle tiny, tiny problems in the "worlds within worlds," apparently by punching them until they are no longer problems. The comic is written by IDW editor Chris Ryall with art by Judge Dredd's Nelson Daniel, and if a premise that sounds like Power Rangers meets Micronauts is something you're into, good news: We've got an exclusive extended preview to check out below!
