After Nadia Van Dyne’s first real birthday party, she got a video call from her mother, who is apparently being held against her will by the Red Room somewhere in Siberia. With just three issues left in the run, The Unstoppable Wasp #8 has to tackle that problem and more. Nadia and the members of G.I.R.L. are off to the Young Scientists Expo, where things may or may not go as planned. Nadia’s playing host, but with her mind in Siberia with Bobbi and Bucky, truly anything could happen.
Marvel provided The Beat with an exclusive preview of the first five pages of the new issue, on sale May 22. Take a look at the preview below and be sure to pick up a copy of The Unstoppable Wasp #8 at your local comic shop on Wednesday.
