After big-screen appearances in Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Endgame made her a household name, Marvel’s Nebula will get her own miniseries next year, courtesy of Vita Ayala and Claire Roe, with covers by Jen Bartel.
“I’ve always found her fascinating because there was a lot of mustache-twirling-villain to her at first, but then there’d be these hints of this deeper pathos,” Ayala told Refinery29. “[Since] the movies kind of reinvigorated interest in her, we’ve gotten to see her pop up more and more in the comics. And now, here’s her solo title where all we do is really dive deep and explore who she is and why she does what she does. That’s kind of my jam.”
Nebula first debuted in the pages of Avengers #257, by Roger Stern and John Buscema. She billed herself as the granddaughter of the then-dead Thanos, and went on to play a major role in Jim Starlin’s Infinity Gauntlet story. Since then she’s been a mainstay in Marvel’s cosmic titles, including Guardians of the Galaxy.
Here’s how Marvel describes the book: “In NEBULA, the daughter of Thanos and sister of Gamora is getting her time in the spotlight — and she has her eye on a very secret device. But will one of the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunters get to it first? Marvel fans know that Nebula rarely lets anyone get in her way…”
The miniseries kicks off in February.
