New OGN from Greg Pak and Valeria Favoccia due out next February.
With the third season of Stranger Things now available for binge-watching and the franchise showing no signs of slowing down, it makes sense that we’d hear about a new project from Dark Horse. Following the previous two miniseries, the publisher will release an original graphic novel next February set in the Stranger Things universe.
Writer Greg Pak will team with artist Valeria Favoccia, colorist Dan Jackson and letterer Nate Piekos for Stranger Things: Zombie Boys. It’ll be set after season one and will feature a new character, Joey Kim, who wants to make his own horror movie.

Greg Pak and Gang-Hyuk Lim bring a new team of Asian heroes together to fight in the ‘War of the Realms.’
Marvel is reviving their Agents of Atlas title as part of its War of the Realms crossover event. The title will feature a new team of characters — many appearing in comics for the first time — and a new creative team.
Greg Pak and Gang-Hyuk Lim will bring the concept back to life, pulling in characters from several different sources. The agents will help protect the Pacific Rim from an invasion by Sindr, Immortal Queen of Muspelheim, and her legions of Fire Demons. Almost all of the characters who appeared in Pak’s Totally Awesome Hulk as “The Protectors” — Shang-Chi, Silk, Amadeus Cho (who goes by “Brawn” these days over in Champions) and Jimmy Woo — will appear, along with several characters from the Marvel video game Future Fight.

Chip Zdarsky, Carlos Magno, Butch Guice and more dip into Marvel’s past to help celebrate the future.
With their 80th anniversary coming up next year, Marvel is reviving two titles in January — the anthology Marvel Comics Presents, and Invaders by Chip Zdarsky, Carlos Magno and Butch Guice.
Marvel Comics Presents ran as a bi-weekly anthology series from 1988 until 1995. Some of the highlights of the original run included the first published work of Scott Lobdell (including a clever story about Reed and Sue Richards living in the suburbs); Barry Windsor Smith’s “Weapon X” serial, one of the first stories to detail Wolverine’s origins; and the first appearances of characters like Cyber, Damage Control and Nth Man. There was also a very wonderful Colossus story, Colossus: God’s Country, written by Ann Nocenti. The series returned in 2007 for a 12-issue run.
The new volume will feature the works of Charles Soule, Greg Pak, Ann Nocenti, Tomm Coker and Paulo Siqueira, telling stories about Namor, Captain America and of course Wolverine, who appeared in many issues of the first volume.

Static Shock, Icon, Rocket and more set to return next spring as a part of ‘Earth M.’
Milestone Comics was a big, groundbreaking idea back in the 1990s, and now it’s coming back to comics in a big way.
At the New York Comic Con, DC Comics announced plans to launch five new titles featuring characters from the 1990s imprint. The new initiative, called Earth M, will feature creators like Reginald Hudlin, Ken Lashley, Greg Pak, Kyle Baker and more.
