Nebula is getting a five-issue mini-series in February, from the creative team of Vita Ayala and Claire Roe with covers by Jen Bartel. The news was revealed exclusively by fossil fuel industry themed entertainment website Refinery29, though a press release was later put out on Marvel.com containing a description of the series:
In NEBULA, the daughter of Thanos and sister of Gamora is getting her time in the spotlight — and she has her eye on a very secret device. But will one of the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunters get to it first? Marvel fans know that Nebula rarely lets anyone get in her way…
And in the interview, Ayala talked about the character:
I think of her as someone who has been fundamentally traumatized and damaged, both physically and psychologically. One of the things I found really interesting about her was how she became kind of a cyborg; they went in and put robotic parts everywhere, including her brain. I wondered, What does that do to a person? Does that account for some of the really wild stuff that she gets up to later on? So the series has explosions and punching and shooting — it’s basically a space Western — but through all that stuff, I really want to show what trauma does to you, fundamentally as a person.
