Ant-Man Is Back With New Comic Book Series

Ant-Man Is Back With New Comic Book Series


Jay Cochran - November 05, 2019
Announced at MCM Comic Con London, Ant-Man is set to make a major comeback this February with a new series that will have the entire Marvel Universe buzzing! Zeb Wells and Dylan Burnett join forces to tell a tale that will take Ant-Man from the anthill to the world stage.

Known for his lively humor and slick dialogue on books like NOVA and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Zeb Wells is the perfect fit for the wisecracking former thief and is ready to infuse Ant-Man with his trademark wit. “Dylan Burnett, Mike Spicer and I are out to put the ant in Ant-Man, turn over some rocks and craft a bug-forward tale that starts small and spins into a world-spanning adventure,” said Wells. “And you know Stinger (Cassie Lang) is coming along for the ride.”

The series will open with Scott Lang down on his luck and desperate for adventure until he’s looped in for a job only he can accomplish. What begins as a seemingly unheroic task for local beekeepers rapidly escalates into a conspiracy that could threaten the Earth! Throughout this journey, Ant-Man will not only have to prove himself as a hero, but as a parent to his daughter Cassie Lang as well. A Super Hero herself, Cassie will be joining her dad as Stinger as the father/daughter duo embark on this bug-filled quest together, along with many of your other favorite Marvel Super Heroes!

With books like X-FORCE and COSMIC GHOST RIDER under his belt, Dylan Burnett will easily match Wells’ energy, and his kinetic art style will make sure this fast-paced, globetrotting romp is one readers will never forget.

ANT-MAN lands in stores this February!

ANT-MAN #1
Written by ZEB WELLS
Art by DYLAN BURNETT
Cover by EDUARD PETROVICH


Ant-Man is back and doing better than ever! Er, at least according to him, but Stinger and the anthill he’s living in say otherwise. Desperate to raise his daughter’s opinion of him, Ant-Man takes a job from local beekeepers only to uncover a global conspiracy that could topple the world order! No time to call the Avengers, this sounds like a job for –ANT-MAN?! Join the explosive creative team of Zeb Wells (NOVA) and Dylan Burnett (X-FORCE, COSMIC GHOST RIDER) as they take Ant-Man to all-new heights in this epic adventure!

I think we can all agree this thread's going really well.

Anyway, I have a question, becauseI've never read any Ant-Man or really even much in the way of Avengers, but I try to keep up to date on the basics. Is the communicating with ants thing something that has always existed in the comics, or did that get ported in from the movies? Is it just a Scott Lang thing, or doesHank Pym do it too? It's only relatively recently that I finally watchedmost of the MCU movies, andI had only ever known about the size alteration aspect of his powers before seeing them. I wasn't sure if that was my own ignorance or a Hollywood-inspired development in the comics.

Indeed, they even like to name their ants, Scott's were named after various actors

Is there something else I need your and Jay's permission to have an opinion on? Seriously, send me a list, I live for your approval.

Mark it "Pretentious"

You want me to mark it after your attitude? Gotcha.

It was a suggestion so that you avoid talking out of your butt about things you don't actually know. If you enjoy to do that, go ahead. I don't mind stepping in.

IIf you stopped reading Marvel years ago, then maybe you're not the best person to comment on their current output. I don't mean this spitefully. Really, if you want to comment on Marvel's current output, be sure to actually know at least about it. I haven't read DC in ages, so I don't go around talking about how many good books they have or don't have. Because I know I don't actually have the authority to tell.

From what i understand, marvel's decisions are still largely based on sales of floppies, and for whatever reason, starting over with a new number 1 provides a short-term boost in sales. Same with "events" and tie-ins. Relying on these kind of stunts to boost sales temporarily is ridiculous and make it hard to get invested in a particular comic imo, but it is what it is. I tend to read comics in collected editions (although its been a few years) but unfortunately those purchases don't seem to influence whether a title continues or not (of course, the time delay plays a role). Nothing against all the comic store owners & employees out there, but it feels like a very archaic business model.

Granted, i should really try the online service, but for an old geezer like me, that's a tough sell. I did give DC's online service a try (mostly to watch some of the shows) and the reading experience was more enjoyable than i had envisioned, although i didn't really end up enjoying many of the titles i read enough to continue past the trial period.

It is largely floppies, it is only in the last few years that digital and trades factor into decision making. Unstoppable Wasp and Iceman were prime examples.

I pretty much agree. I like the mcu but dont see any evidence that changing 616 to mimic the mcu has boosted sales or resulted in mcu fans becoming comic readers (unless they already were). Maybe if Disney promoted the comics more it would make a difference but Im not sure about that either, and its a moot point since Disney doesnt seem interested. I think it would be best to just let comic writers tell the stories they want to tell and then let the mcu poach whatever comic ideas they want.

Of course ymmv as far as whether the mcu has done a good job adapting those ideas but going in the other direction hasnt really resulted in great comics as far as I can tell. For instance, I disliked how they changed star lord from his depiction in Keith Giffens limited series and the DnA GotG comic. I mostly blame Bendis. Admittedly Im a few years behind the current comics so it may well be that I dont know what Im talking about

Scott Gray, editor of the UK Collector Editions revealed that if there is a movie, there is an increase in sales for roughly 3 months but then it goes back to the way it was.

To true. That's what happens when you go for quantity over quality. If Marvel could just do two or three GREAT books as opposed to twenty so-so books . . . I probably wouldn't have stopped reading them years ago.

Immortal Hulk, X-Men, Venom, Amazing Spider-Man, Daredevil, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, Marauders, Runaways, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

There you have your quota of great books. Wait, those aren't just two or three. I mentioned nine. Not to mention Immortal Hulk is leagues above in quality that the second best book. And I might have missed a few. Not to mention there are other books like Fantastic Four or Tony Stark: Iron Man which aren't great but are still good, or some recent mini-series like Avengers: No Road Home that were fantastic.

If you stopped reading Marvel years ago, then maybe you're not the best person to comment on their current output. I don't mean this spitefully. Really, if you want to comment on Marvel's current output, be sure to actually know at least about it.

No doubt. You also can't overstate the importance Marvel puts on feeding the movie machine. They inundate us with books revolving around characters featured in the movies, make sweeping changes to books to make them more closely resemble the movies, or overhaul books to make them more desirable to the movie makers.

I pretty much agree. I like the mcu but dont see any evidence that changing 616 to mimic the mcu has boosted sales or resulted in mcu fans becoming comic readers (unless they already were).
