Following his debut on Marauders Annual in January, Steve Orlando will write his first ongoing series for Marvel.
Steve Orlando and Eleonora Carlini will take the helm of Marauders in March, as Marvel relaunches the title with a new first issue, a new creative team and a new cast.

The crossover series features the latest renditions of the characters, who don’t have quite the history that they did in the TV show and Dark Horse line of comics. BOOM! rebooted the characters to a high school setting when they picked up the license, so this will be Buffy and Angel’s first meeting, as editor Jeanine Schaefer explains.
