Kindt and his wife Sharlene will team up once again for the story of a spy who doesn’t know he’s a spy.
Super Spy creator Matt Kindt will go undercover once again in Spy Superb, which stars a different sort of secret agent — one who doesn’t even know they’re a spy.
Kindt will team with his wife, Sharlene Kindt, who he worked with on Dept H. It’ll come out from Flux House, Kindt’s new imprint at Dark Horse.
“In Spy Superb I wanted to explore a character, the idea of a very average person who is under the belief that he is utterly exceptional,” said Kindt. “There is a scientific term for this–The Dunning-Kruger effect–a person who insists they possess knowledge and skills that they obviously do not. What if a super spy was suffering from this? Well…they would of course be a…SPY SUPERB. It was actually really hard for me to keep this character alive past issue #1… there are hit men after him…a super assassin who kills only with rock, paper, and scissors… and a real super spy working in the shadows of our “hero” who may actually be the real spy superb. It feels really great to be drawing a new book–and I’m beyond happy that Sharlene Kindt is painting it. It’s definitely the most ambitious collaboration we’ve ever had.”

The four-issue miniseries kicks off in November.
Brian Michael Bendis’ Jinxworld will grow by one this fall as the award-winning writer teams with artist Jacob Edgar and colorts K.J. Diaz for The Ones.
The story will feature characters from multiple mythologies and multiverses who were told they were “The One” — think Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the kid from Good Omens, Highlander, the “One and Only” Richochet from WWE and everyone else given that label — only, not actually those characters, but new ones created for this comic. They’re brought together to defeat, naturally, The One.
“Jacob is an amazing artist and creating this brand-new, fun-as-hell world with him has been one of the greatest delights,” Bendis said. “Wilson and the rest of The Ones are among my absolute favorite creations I’ve ever been a part of and I can’t wait to introduce you to all of them.”

‘Koshchei in Hell’ kicks off in November.
Mike Mignola, Ben Stenbeck and Dave Stewart will team once again for Koshchei in Hell, a new miniseries set in the Hellboy-verse coming from Dark Horse in November.
The series will star Koshchei the Deathless, who once tried to kill Hellboy at the bequest of the Baba Yaga. This time around, Koshchei must defend his home, Hell, from destruction.
“It’s always a pleasure working with Ben, as he can really do everything,” said Mignola. “And there’s just something about how he does things—something very natural and almost quiet—subtle—til it’s time to NOT be subtle. It just really works with the kind of stories I’m trying to tell. And Koshchei—I just love this guy. I’ve really put him through the wringer, but he keeps on going. And Hell—well, is it odd to say I love that place?”

Gerry Duggan and Juan Frigeri chart a new path for Tony Stark.
Although Christopher Cantwell’s run on Iron Man comes to a close in November, Tony Stark won’t get much of a holiday break. Marvel has announced that the title will relaunch in December as Invincible Iron Man, by the creative team of Gerry Duggan and Juan Frigeri.
“It’s my privilege to try and follow Christopher Cantwell and his collaborators’ stellar run on Iron Man heading into an anniversary year,” Duggan said. “Juan and I are going to introduce a new menace that is gunning for Tony Stark and his greatest creation. We have an epic tale for Stark and plans for old foes, including flashbacks to some of his classic armors. How about a little Silver Centurion for his diamond anniversary? Armor up, you’re gonna need it.”
