Marvel details the creative teams and release dates in this first look at three new Season One graphic novels.
...and wouldn't you know it, all three are characters with movie appearances on the way or film projects in development? As opposed to some of the higher profile characters from the first initial round of Season One titles. The Hulk, Dr. Strange, and Ant-Man are representing this time around as Marvel revisits the character's origins with slightly more contemporary takes than when Stan, Jack, and company brought them into the world 50 years ago. In terms of creative team, we've got Fred Van Lente and Tom Fowler on The Hulk (August 2012), Tom DeFalco and Horacio Domingues on Ant-Man (July 2012), and the one I'm most excited about, Greg Pak and Emma Rios on Dr. Strange (September) (Rios does a mean Dr. Strange).
Here's the official blurb from Marvel:
