November 5th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Asgaardian favourite Angela gets her own book…

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at ANGELA: ASGARD’S ASSASSIN #1, the explosive new ongoing series debuting this December! Launching as part of Avengers NOW!, the star-studded creative team of Kieron Gillen, Marguerite Bennett, Phil Jimenez and Stephanie Hans will show you a side of Angela you’ve never seen before, as she cuts a bloody path across the new and unfamiliar Marvel Universe!

The finest warrior in the Tenth Realm, she has been raised to hate Asgard with every fiber of her being. Training, preparing and waiting for the day when the war between Asgard and Heven would begin again. But following the events of Original Sin: Thor & Loki –The Tenth Realm, she must confront her true lineage. She is Odin’s daughter. Thor’s sister. Asgardian…

Now, cast out from the Tenth Realm and wanting nothing to do with Asgard, she will strike out on her own and forge a new path. What does she want? A clean slate. And she will destroy any who try to take it from her. But what does she have that both Asgard and Heven want? And what are they willing to do to take it from her?

“The story is Angela is basically on the run,” says Kieron Gillen in an interview with Marvel.com. “It gives her a chance to interact with a lot of different people so by the end of the first arc we really get a sense of who Angela is vis-à-vis the Marvel Universe. You get a sense of who she is and where she fits into the larger picture.”

As the Marvel Universe’s newest star prepares to make her solo debut, no fan can afford to miss the bombastic adventures of the angelic warrior when ANGELA: ASGARD’S ASSASSIN #1 explodes into comic shops and digital devices this December!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
