C2E2 ’19: Marvel Exclusive Howard To Write Death’s Head (Minor Update)


The Women of Marvel panel at C2E2, had a couple pieces of news. First of all, writer Tini Howard signed on to be a Marvel exclusive. She is currently writing Age of Conan: Belit, Queen of the Black Coast, and has a Thanos mini-series and a piece in the Guardians of the Galaxy annual in the pipeline.

However, that’s not all Howard has up her sleeves. She will also be writing a new Death’s Head series. Death’s Head is a cyborg mechanoid bounty hunter freelance peacekeeping agent, who originated in the Marvel UK Transformers title. He also appeared in the Marvel UK Doctor Who title and most recently appeared in the Infinity Wars: Sleepwalker mini-series. Howard will be working with artist Kei Zama, and the first issue will be out in July.

The new series will have Death’s Head getting a new design and teaming up with Young Avengers Wiccan and Hulkling. Here’s how Howard describes the series:

The book starts out when Death’s Head realizes he’s not as good as he used to be… He’s told all the newer models do it better than you, and I was thinking about who would be a good character to pair with him. Wiccan and Hulkling team with him in this.

You were warned, yes?
