3) What We Know!
Alongside Manning, Artist Marianna Pescosta and Colorist Alessandro de Fornasari will be back agin as the creative team. During our New York Comic Con interview, Manning revealed to Villain Media his favorite part of the one-shot special, “One of the main characters in the book is a ghost. The way Marianna and Alessandro drew and colored a translucent ghost, it’s probably one of my favorite parts of the book!”
Also at the New York Comic Con, Jamie Madrox and Monoxide dished that there would be more issues coming forward.
“JM: It’s to lay the premise for the characters and who they are and what they’re going to do in this universe.
M: We just got in the comic dorm.
JM: We’re just here! We’re not ready to leave!
M: We’re not leaving!
JM: Hell no!”
