With Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp film set to debut in July, starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, Marvel Entertainment will be debuting a new six-issue limited series titled Ant-Man & The Wasp. It will hit comic book stands one month before the release of the film on June 6. Check out the cover below by David Nakayama.
The series will be written by Mark Waid with artwork by Javier Garron and colors by Israel Silva. It will feature a story where Scott Lang has shrunken himself down and gotten lost. His only hope to be rescued is Nadia Pym. Lang of course, not the easiest guy to get to admit that he is lost or that he even needs someone to rescue him.
Newsarama had the opportunity to interview both Waid and Garron. According to Garron the series will be fast-paced and very entertaining:
“The pace and tone of the story is crazy fast and crazy fun, so by the end of Ant-Man & The Wasp #1 has already happened a lot of stuff. You could even say there are two full adventures in the first issue, which I feel as a reader like a treat. I fear to give away too much. But let’s say there are light speed chases, a whole new species already in danger, an experiment gone wrong and quite a lot of arguing! I was able to use from very classic page layouts to really wild compositions, a lot of face expressions and I had my first experience drawing fireworks. Was that too vague?”
Waid also commented on how much work he put into the science of shrinking down Ant-Man and Wasp:
“Trust me, my browser history and desktop are filled with research. I could spend days and days just researching. With Nadia as my “voice,” I’m able to really articulate how subatomics works using today’s science. The atom model we all learned in school – billiard ball surrounded by smaller orbiting billiard balls – is incredibly inaccurate and doesn’t take into account how electrons rely on probability, not set paths, nor does it properly explain the nature of quantum foam and what its significance is. Feel free to take notes or just enjoy the story.”
We last saw Ant-Man in his own title The Astonishing Ant-Man in 2015 written by Nick Spencer and Nadia Pym in her own book The Unstoppable Wasp last year written by Jeremy Whitley. While I did not particularly enjoy the The Wasp title, Spencer had a good run on his Ant-Man book. I look forward to having this pair back on comic book stands, hopefully we can get a on-going Ant-Man series soon.
