Spinning out of the events of West Coast Avengers, Gwenpool will star in a new mini-series this Summer from the creative team of Leah Williams and David Baldeon. Comic Book Resources had the EX-X-XCLUSIVE thanks to the “access journalism” which is killing the media. In Gwenpool Strikes Back, Gwen, in an attempt to avoid disappearing into comic book limbo, concocts a plan to stay relevant, starting by unmasking Spider-Man (please, Gwen, how many times has that already happened?). Check out the solicit below, and look for the first issue in stores in August.
Oh, and what does this mean for the future of Baldeon and Gail Simone’s Domino after Hotshots? That’s the only part of this we don’t like. :(

POOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER!
That’s right — everyone’s favorite comics-fan-turned-comics character is back, and this time, she’s playing for keeps! Gwen Poole is desperate not to disappear into comic book limbo, so she’s going to make an impact on the Marvel Universe! First up: Unmask Spider-Man! And heck, maybe see if she can get some real super-powers while she’s at it!
First appearing on a variant cover for Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2, Gwenpool has become something of a cult character for Marvel. She received her own series, The Unbelievable Gwenpool, in 2016. That comic ran until 2018.
