With her imminent big screen debut soon approaching in Deadpool 2, it is very wise of Marvel to give fan-favorite Domino her own solo comic book. Even better, it’ll be written by an industry favorite in the form of Gail Simone.
Simone is a beloved comics writer with much praise being heaped upon her runs of Birds of Prey, Secret Six, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Red Sonja, and as well, Deadpool. Her run with the popular character is considered among the best representations of the Merc with a Mouth. Marvel recently announced that the related character/love-interest Domino will receive a brand-new solo series.
Debuting on April 11 with a Greg Land and Frank D’Armata cover, Domino will be leading her very own comic book before her debut on the silver screen.
In a description of the book, Marvel said in a statement:
When Domino finds herself on the wrong side of the mercenary community, the favorite femme fatale has to fight back and, somehow, stay alive. Hunted by her enemies, a danger to her friends, and chased by the man who hates her more than anything, Domino will be up against the odds—but that’s never stopped her before.
Simone has been mainly DC/Vertigo for the past few years. She even expressed her excitement about writing the book saying:
My favorite characters are always the unpredictable ones, and with Domino, you literally never know which way the dice are going to roll. I love her, and I can’t wait to show her best bad side!
Whatever may come from the book, I’m excited to see Gail Simone back on the other side. What do you hope from the book? Let us know in the comments below!
