Al Ewing continues to honor Avengers with ‘Wasp’ #1 in January 2023

Celebrate Wasp’s 60th anniversary with the new limited series ‘Wasp’!

Press Release

Marvel Comics has announced a new series in the same vein as Al Ewing’s Ant-Man focused on Janet and Nadia Van Dyne titled Wasp! Joining him is artist Kasia Nie, known for her acclaimed work on titles like Mockingbird and Age of Conan: Belit. Tom Reilly will continue to supply covers similar in style to the Ant-Man covers. Check those out below!

Expect to find Wasp #1–a four-issue series–in comic shops on January 18th.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

“The Ant-Man series was a whole lot of fun and gave me a new appreciation for Janet Van Dyne and her world – and when I went digging into her past, there was a whole story there just waiting to be unearthed,” Ewing explained. “If you weren’t a fan of the Wondrous Wasp before – not to mention her adopted daughter Nadia Van Dyne – you will be when we’re done!”

So what’s Wasp about?

After countless Avengers missions, earth-shattering battles, and fabulous costumes, Janet Van Dyne is ready to start a new chapter in her legendary super hero career! But as she sets out to change up her role within Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, a villain from her past rises out of the shadows to ruin all she’s worked for. Joined by Nadia Van Dyne, Janet and Nadia team up against a dangerous new organization with shocking connections to both their histories. As the threat grows more urgent, Janet and Nadia will face a test so great that they may become the very thing they fear most…

“I’m super excited to work with Al and rest of the team on this anniversary tribute to Wasp,” Nie added. “I love Janet, she’s one of my favorite Marvel characters—a mature person with an uneasy past, a successful woman and the best mom to Nadia. She’s unstoppable.”
