Layman, Bradshaw team on ‘Bermuda’ from IDW

New series due out next year, featuring dinosaurs, pirates and more.

Chew scribe John Layman is teaming up with Wolverine and the X-Menartist Nick Bradshaw for a new creator-owned title called Bermuda. The series will be published by IDW in 2020.

Bermuda is a story that’s been rattling around in my head for a while, and the type of book I’ve wanted to write for quite some time: high adventure with a jungle hero in a strange, savage land filled with all kinds of dangers and a world that’s both weird and wonderful,” Layman said. “In addition to Chew, my absolute favorite books I’ve ever done have been with IDW – Scarface, Godzilla and Mars Attacks – so I’m hoping lightning strikes a fourth time with Bermuda!”

Marvel announces ‘Silver Surfer: Black’

New miniseries by Donny Cates and Tradd Moore debuts in June.

The Silver Surfer might be gone — sucked into a Black Hole or something in the new Guardians of the Galaxy series — but he is not forgotten. Galactus’ former herald will get a new miniseries by Guardians writer Donny Cates and artist Tradd Moore titled Silver Surfer: Black.

“When Donny Cates wrote the first issue of the new Guardians of the Galaxy series, we both agreed that Silver Surfer’s adventure wasn’t going to end there, that there was still more story to be told about what happened to all the cosmic heroes that got sucked into the Black Order’s wormhole,” said editor Darren Shan. “But Donny’s imagination really kicked into gear when artist Tradd Moore signed on! Readers won’t realize it, but Silver Surfer: Black is a culmination of everything Donny has been writing since his Thanos run. And Tradd Moore is delivering some of the craziest visuals seen in a Marvel Comic today!”
