Neil Gaiman Returning to Marvel and Bringing a Friend

Posted on March 21, 2013 at 7:58 am by Tyler Waterman

In a surprising move, Marvel has announced today that Neil Gaiman is returning, with a surprising character in tow. The legendary comic author, responsible for classic titles such Sandman and The Eternals, will make his return by co-writing the final issue of Age of Ultron with Brian Michael Bendis.

What’s even more surprising, he’ll also be introducing to the Marvel Universe a character he made famous in the pages of Image Comics’ Spawn. Warrior-angel extraordinaire Angela will be making her premiere in the same issue, and will apparently become an important character in the Marvel U going forward. This follows a very public and bitter legal dispute with Todd McFarlane over the rights to the character, in which Gaiman was awarded half-ownership.

Both of these announcements are great news, as Angela is a compelling character and Gaiman’s reputation more than speaks for itself. As if it wasn’t already hotly anticipated, the final issue of Age of Ultron has officially reached “can’t miss” status!
