After three series — the six-part Agents of Atlas mini, the 11-issue Agents of Atlas ongoing, and the current monthly Atlas — it looks like Jeff Parker’s run on the 1950s Marvel Comics characters is ending with September’s Atlas #5.
The news was revealed by no less of a source than Parker himself, in an interview published today by ComicsAlliance (they interviewed Gorilla Man, too, which is a pretty good coup). The writer said that it was his choice to end the book — whose most recent iteration started in May — and called the current 3-D man storyline “a definite highwater mark.”
It’s a good bet the characters will stick around the Marvel Universe after the series, written by Parker and penciled by Gabriel Hardma, end — Atlas member Gorilla Man is featured in a solo three-issue miniseries starting this week, read a preview here and an article about it here. Namora starred in a one-shot last month.
