Tim Seeley and Carlos Villa to helm a "Shatterstar" solo series this October
"The dude's an alien gladiator!" That's a hook if I've ever heard one, and it's how writer Tim Seeley describes his enthusiasm for Shatterstar. He seems a good fit to write the character then, which is good, since he's getting the chance: Marvel have just announced that Seeley will write a new Shatterstar solo series that's set to debut this October. Joined by Carlos Villa on pencils, Seeley is clearly excited about the prospect and up to the task.
Seeley promises to take a similar approach as Grayson, exploring Shatterstar's reputation as a man of action. He also states that the book will "be part John Wick, a dash of Will Eisner’s A Contract with God, and infused with lots of lots of interdimensional X-Men Super Hero mythos." Action, intrigue, and exploring a character's psyche? And said character is an alein warrior with rad double-bladed swords? Sign me up.
Head to the Marvel blog for more details from Seeley. Shatterstar #1 will hit comic shops and other retailers October 3.
