Because of your tremendous support the new Agents of Atlas team featured in WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS is getting its own series starting this August! AGENTS OF ATLAS, written by yours truly with interior art by Nico Leon and a cover by Jung-Geun Yoon, will follow Amadeus Cho, Jimmy Woo, Silk, Wave, and the other heroes of the WOTR: NAOA miniseries as they grapple with the creation of Pan, a cross-Asian portal city made up of slices of neighborhoods of Asian neighborhoods from across the globe!
You can read all about it in this AP article. Here’s an excerpt:
The man leading the heroic charge is veteran comic book writer Greg Pak. Pak is credited with ushering in a new era of Asian characters in co-creating Amadeus Cho, a Korean-American genius teen. The character first appeared in 2005. A decade later, he absorbed the Hulk’s powers and started going by Brawn.
“It’s always been my dream to do a team book using a bunch of Asian and Asian American heroes,” said Pak, who thinks there’s more appetite for representation with the success of the movie “Crazy Rich Asians.” ″There’s literally never been a better time in my memory with more opportunities for doing work that specifically includes Asian and Asian American characters.”
AGENTS OF ATLAS #1 will also include a backup story by Jeff Parker and Carlo Pagulayan that will reveal what’s going on with Jimmy Woo’s original Agents of Atlas team.
The response to this announcement has been overwhelming and I’m so grateful to everyone who’s made this possible! Please do contact your local comic book shop and ask them to pre-order every issue in the series for you today! The more pre-orders the book gets, the better the chances that we’ll be able to keep the series going for a long time.
Thanks so much!
