Gail Simone is returning to Marvel Comics after a long break as the writer for a new Domino series. There is no interior artist announced yet.
“My favorite characters are always the unpredictable ones, and with Domino, you literally never know which way the dice are going to roll,” Simone stated. “I love her, and I can’t wait to show her best bad side!”
“Domino will continue to be one of the breakout stars of Weapon X, but fans have been clamoring to see her get the spotlight for some time now…well, your wish has been granted!” series editor Chris Robinson stated.
Greg Land and Frank D’Armata have created the first issue’s cover, and you can check it out below:
The new Domino series will be the first Simone work to get published by Marvel since Agent X, back in 2003. After that Simone has been associated with various DC titles including Secret Six, Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman, Batgirl and the Vertigo title Clean Room. The latest works of Simone include Red Sonja and Legends of Red Sonja for Dynamite, and Leaving Megalopolis for Dark Horse.
This is going to be the first solo Domino series, after the luck changing mutant has co-starred in several volumes of X-Force, Cable and X-Force, Deadpool & The Mercs for Money. She is currently featuring alongside Old Man Logan and Sabretooth in Weapon X. Domino will be seen on the big screen in Ryan Reynold starrer Deadpool 2, and Zazie Beetz is portraying the character in the movie.
