One of the best items to come out of the “Mondo Marvel” panel is the announcement that the quirky and wonderful Agents of Atlas — comprised of characters from the 1950s Atlas era — will get an ongoing series beginning early next year. The team, which debuted in a 2006 miniseries, last appeared in Secret Invasion: Who Do You Trust?
“I want to keep up the ‘modern pulp’ approach we used in the mini,” writer Jeff Parker tells CBR, “where sometimes you’re in an espionage story, sometimes it’s sci-fi, and it can easily go into mystery and horror very quickly. And we have much inner space of our cast to explore.”
Although Leonard Kirk drew the Agents of Atlas miniseries, he’s now working on Captain Britain and MI:13. The name of the artist for the ongoing is expected to be announced soon.
