The Unstoppable Wasp is Back with a New Ongoing Series by Jeremy Whitley and Gurihiru

Posted by June 12, 2018 Comment

Marvel Comics has announced the return of The Unstoppable Wasp this October with a new series written by Jeremy Whitley with art by Gurihiru. In the book, Nadia Pym will team with her Agents of G.I.R.L. and original Wasp Janet Van Dyne to investigation connections between A.I.M. and Nadia’s father, Hank Pym.

The book is set to hit comic book stores months after the July release of the Ant-Man and the Wasp movie because, honestly, who could have known ahead of time when the film would come out and plan for that?

Marvel has an interview with Whitley, in which he describes where Nadia is at in the new book:

I think we’re going to see a lot more of the Nadia we got to know in the last two issues of the first volume, one who doesn’t have all of the answers. It wasn’t so long ago that Nadia was a part-time Avenger with very few social obligations. Now she’s a Champion, has responsibilities with G.I.R.L., and has a lot more people in her life than she ever has before. A lot of this first story is going to be about how Nadia reacts to having so many more commitments in her life. We’re also going to deal a lot more with what she’s inherited from Hank, both in her civilian life and as the Wasp. Hank’s had more than his fair share of enemies — and right now, he’s off making more.

As well as his work with Gurihiru:

I had the immense pleasure of working with Gurihiru once before on the first project I ever work on for SECRET WARS: SECRET LOVE. I learned that Gurihiru have an amazing sense of style and that the project will probably be served best by me telling them what I need and letting them fill in the blanks. We went back and forth on the designs just a little, but only to get them finely attuned. I credit them with looking at Elsa’s work on the first volume and seeing how they could make those looks fresh and new. I think they’ve done a tremendous job.

Whitley also promised more Mockingbird, exploration of Nadia’s time with the Red Room, and “the revitalization of A.I.M. under a familiar face that Nadia last saw inside of a giant robot.” Look for this in stores on October 3rd, and check out some art below:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
