Marvel is happy to announce that New Warriors #1 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level), signaling a triumphant return of Marvel’s fan favorite super hero team. Writer Kevin Grievoux and artist Paco Medina’s Initiative tie-in, New Warriors #1, re-imagines the young Marvel team and positions them against Iron Man’s pro-registration regime. The series also features the enigmatic resurrection of former New Warriors leader, Night Thrasher, and the return of a few fan-favorite former mutants who are struggling to live without powers in the post-Civil War world.
“We’re thrilled by the news,” says Executive Editor Axel Alonso. “All the guys — Kevin, Paco, Juan and Marte — all brought their passion and their A-game to the book, and I think it shows.”
Richard George of IGN.com calls New Warriors #1 a “must read,” stating. “The characters are incredible and Paco Medina’s art is astonishing…This could very well be the next Young Avengers or Runaways.”
With the first amazing issue of New Warriors selling out, and with the increasing success of other related Initiative titles, Marvel advises retailers to check their orders for future issues of this series. Marvel currently has no plans to go back to press on New Warriors #1. The New Warriors are back, and are fighting the (Iron)man!!!
