Marvel’s magical teens will return in October to finish out their freshman year in Strange Academy: Finals. Although the series receives a reboot with a new first issue, fans will be happy to know that the creative team of Skottie Young and Humberto Ramos are still in charge at the academy.
The first series, Strange Academy, ended just this past month with some heavy revelations and a field trip to the dark dimension. Young promises we’ll see the ramifications from the first series’ final issue.
“This is a real passion project for me and Humberto, and we’ve never had so much fun making this project,” Young said. “All of the high school teen drama between Dormammu’s son Doyle and Emily Bright is going to come back, but this is not just a continuation of the next day of class! You will see the ramifications of how the first series ended, and we’re going to be focusing on some really cool characters. And with the prophecy over the last few years…someone’s going to come out of this changed in a big way.”
The description from Marvel is somewhat vague, but hey, I’m just happy to see this one back in the line-up:
Freshman year is almost over! From day one, people have been wondering – who is the savior of Strange Academy, and who can bring it all down? The future of Marvel Magic is going to be decided here, and it will take FAR more than the Sorcerer Supreme and his school if magic has a chance!
“When we first started, we just wanted to do something together, but it was great to see the reaction from the fans,” Ramos said. “I love drawing these characters, and Skottie gives them the best scripts to play with these kids, their universe, their concerns and powers, and the way they’d like the world to be. This new saga and chapter of their lives will be really insane.”
Emily Bright, Doyle Dormammu, Zoe Laveau and the rest of the gang will return to comic shelves on Oct. 26.
