ROBYN HOOD goes ongoing!
So… the news has been slowly leaking this week and, with the release of PREVIEWS in comic shops today, the cat is out of the bag on a number of different things… but the one I want to talk about first is something I’ve been hoping to announce since 2012.
Comic Frontline was the first to pull the news from Previews World, so kudos to them.
ROBYN HOOD is finally going ongoing. The brand new ROBYN HOOD #1 will release this August, and this time, there is no end in sight. I’ll be returning as writer with the same team… Larry Watts, my artist soulmate, on art duties with Slamet Mujiono on colors and Jim Campbell lettering. Since the demands of an ongoing are high, we will have guest artists (one who I can’t wait to talk about!) on certain storylines, but the series will be structured so that Larry and I will be handling it together, as a team.
The trilogy (Robyn Hood, Wanted, and Legend) told a very specific story that made Robyn Hood the hero of Nottingham in the world of Myst. The ongoing brings Robyn — and a few returning characters from the trilogy — into New York City… for the beginning of an entirely new and epic story.
And the cover is drawn and painted by DC Comics superstar DAVID FINCH!
Here’s the solicitation info:
"The most badass archer in comics is back in a brand new ongoing series! From drug lords to corrupt bankers to the things that go bump in the night, no evils that plague the streets will be safe when Robyn Locksley sets up shop as a private detective in New York City.
While Robyn settles into her new life, the Cabal, a collective of mysterious and powerful individuals, sets their sights on bringing down the hooded heroine, who will face the biggest threat of her life.”
