Dan Slott and Valerio Schiti to helm "Tony Stark: Iron Man" this June
Dan Slott, long-time scribe for Spider-Man, and artist Valerio Schiti are set to take on a new Marvel heavyweight this June: Iron Man.
In an exclusive with Nerdist, Slott promises an Iron Man series that is "somewhere between Rick & Morty and Black Mirror." Wildly different sources of inspiration, to be sure, though it offers the promise of some out-there science-fiction premises that still manage to be prescient and relevant.
Per the Marvel press release:
