From the pages of one of Marvel’s most critically acclaimed titles comes a new series: GAMMA FLIGHT! Launching out of Al Ewing’s Eisner-nominated work on Immortal Hulk, GAMMA FLIGHT will introduce a new Marvel super team consisting of Bruce Banner’s allies, friends, and even former archenemies! Featuring artwork by Lan Medina, the new series will be co-written by Ewing and Crystal Frasier. Fraiser will make her Marvel Comics debut in June’s Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1 and previously served as a consultant on earlier issues of Immortal Hulk. Now she teams up with Ewing to take this fascinating, hauntingly beautiful Hulk saga to the next level.
Gamma Flight had one job: Find and stop the Hulk. But when push came to smash, they sided with the Green Goliath—and the human world intends to make them regret it. Puck, Absorbing Man, Titania, Doc Sasquatch, Dr. Charlene McGowan and a horribly changed Rick Jones are fugitives from every known authority—but a team that full of gamma is bound to break before long. Go on the run with this wild gamma-fueled group in this action-packed addition to the Immortal Hulk mythos!
“GAMMA FLIGHT is an opportunity to explore some of the concepts and plant some of the seeds from IMMORTAL HULK in their own space, building off the found family that came together in those pages and putting them into action against some strange and ugly doings in the unexplored corners of the gamma world,” Ewing explained. “We’ve been ricocheting ideas off each other for a while on this one, and I suspect the result is something that’ll tickle Hulk fans old and new.”
“Working with Al last year as a consultant for Immortal Hulk was a wonderful experience,” Frasier said. “He’s smart, amazingly creative, and amazingly open to feedback. Collaborating with him to write a full series has been wonderful. It’s so easy to bounce elements back and forth to develop a good idea into a great one. And his knowledge of Hulk minutiae from the last 60 years is truly a thing to behold.”
I am cool with this. A ton of people just love the Immortal Hulk and with that coming to an end, fans can get their fill over at the Gamma Flight area. While I love Doc Sasquatch, I think I most interested in what the hell is going on with Rick Jones! From coffee shop guitar strummer to an abomination, he’s a roller coaster ride of emotions in one guy.
