Yeah, who would’ve thought it? Marvel have announced that in November they’ll be publishing a new Longshot miniseries. Longshot! But this mini will be written by Chris Hastings and drawn by Jacopo Camagni, so perhaps there’s hope for it still.
Starting in November, Longshot Saves The Marvel Universe (to give the full title) will see the character drawn into a murder investigation when a series of people with ‘luck’ powers are murdered around New York. Caught up in the case, he’ll be targeted by SHIELD, various Marvel villains, and the odd cosmic entity.
Jordan D. White, who edited the character previously in X-Factor, will edit this miniseries as well. Marvel haven’t done much in the way of X-Men miniseries for a little while now – the most recent I can think of were the Psylocke, Storm, and Pixie miniseries that came out in short succession a few years back.
So…erm… yeah! Longshot has a miniseries now. The book starts in November.
