Just in time for his next big screen adventure, Scott Lang is getting a new limited series comic. As part of its Fresh Start initiative, Marvel is releasing Ant-Man and the Wasp by Mark Waid and Javier Garron.
Ant-Man and the Wasp finds Scott Lang lost in his shrunken form. Now the Wasp, Nadia Pym, is his best hope of surviving.
“Everyone at Marvel knows I’m obsessed by two things: the Microverse and Cyclops,” Waid tells Newsarama. “So when editor Jordan D. White wanted to do an Ant-Man & The Wasp mini-series, he knew to call me or else there’d be hell to pay.”
Garron is particularly excited about the dynamic between Scott and Nadia.
“Each character by itself is amazing, but the true gem and the real treat comes when they interact with each other,” said Garron.
He also enjoyed working on the fast pace of the storytelling.
“The pace and tone of the story is crazy fast and crazy fun, so by the end of Ant-Man & The Wasp #1 has already happened a lot of stuff,” Garron continued. “You could even say there are two full adventures in the first issue, which I feel as a reader like a treat. I fear to give away too much. But let’s say there are light speed chases, a whole new species already in danger, an experiment gone wrong and quite a lot of arguing! I was able to use from very classic page layouts to really wild compositions, a lot of face expressions and I had my first experience drawing fireworks.”
Ant-Man and the Wasp #1 hits comic book stores and online retailers June 6.
Ant-Man and the Wasp starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michael Pena, Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Randall Park, David Dastalmachian, T.I., Laurence Fishburne and Michelle Pfeiffer flies into theaters July 6.
