Gail Simone is heading back to Marvel Comics to helm a brand new series featuring a fan favorite character.
Simone has been named as the writer of a new Domino series for the publisher. The last time Simone wrote for Marvel was back in 2003. Since then she has written several series for DC Comics including Wonder Woman, Birds of Prey and Batgirl among others. Most recently, Simone has written the awesome Red Sonja series for Dynamite.
Domino has been featured in several Marvel series including X-Force, Weapon X and others, but Domino #1 will be the first solo ongoing series for the mutant mercenary with the ability to alter luck. Although Domino will be getting her own series, editor Chris Robinson stated “Domino will continue to be one of the breakout stars of Weapon X.”
Simone said in a statement about the character; “My favorite characters are always the unpredictable ones, and with Domino, you literally never know which way the dice are going to roll,” she said. “I love her, and I can’t wait to show her best bad side!”
Domino #1 will arrive in stores April 11, 2018.
