A while ago Comics Beat told you that Gail Simone was back at Marvel with a new Domino mini series, illustrated by David Baldeon. Well here’s the first look inside. The Deedpool-i-verse mercenary come back in April. This mini was announced before Fresh Start was a thing, but it’s sort of a fresh-ish start and adds a female contributor to the mostly male line-up.
Luckily, everyone is excited!
“It’s just a huge pleasure having DOMINO be my comeback to Marvel,” said Simone. “She’s everything I love about comics: a kickass female adventurer who lives life at maximum volume. I just adore her. I love writing mercs and mutants again, I love digging deep into what being those things means in a world where nobody trusts them, not even other mercs and mutants.”
“The tale of Domino, as we’re telling it, feels very much like what people will think of when they think of Neena in the future. And the voice! Ever since page one of the first script, Gail nails Neena’s voice,” said Baldeon. “It’s sexy, it has some of the best action I’ve been lucky enough to draw, it has drama and humor, and it takes you on one of the most exciting rides out there today.”
