BOOM! Studios has announced that writing team Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (collectively known as DnA) will be taking over the Soldier Zero title as of issue #5. Current writer Paul Cornell will be stepping down after issue #5.
“It was a lifelong ambition come true to work with Stan Lee, and I couldn't be happier that such talented writers as Dan and Andy will be taking over from me on Soldier Zero,” said Paul Cornell.
“Paul’s simply a splendid fellow,” said Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. “We are delighted to be following in his footsteps on Stan Lee's Soldier Zero. Paul generously shared his plans and ideas for where he saw the story going, and they are, as you might expect, far too good not to keep, but we’re also bringing lots of new stuff into the mix. Soldier Zero fans will not be disappointed!”
Stan Lee's Soldier Zero tells the story of Stewart Trautmann, an Afghanistan war veteran turned university lecturer, who in a freak accident is fused with an alien weapon of war. Now he stands as Earth's first line of defense in an oncoming galactic conflict!
Shipping this February, Soldier Zero #5 is written by Paul Cornell, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning with art by Javier Pina. The issue ships with A & B covers in a 50/50 split drawn by Trevor Hairsine and Kalman Andrasofszky respectively as well as a 1-in-10 incentive drawn by Hairsine.
