Media Release — Wait, really? Yes, really! 2015’s overnight sensation is slicing and dicing her way into hearts and minds as well as her very own ongoing series! Hold on and hang tight world, because she’s THE UNBELIEVABLE GWENPOOL – and her first issue is coming at you this April from writer Christopher Hastings and artist Gurihiru!
Gwen Poole used to be a comic book reader just like you…until one day she woke up INSIDE the Marvel Universe. Now all the characters she read about are real! But they can’t be really real, can they? This has got to be some kind of dream or something, right? Well you know what that means – NO CONSEQUENCES! First order of business, get a costume and start fighting crime. Why? Because that’s what everyone who has a solo series does!
“Ms. Poole basically thinks she’s been transported into a video game,” says writer Christopher Hastings, in an interview with Marvel.com. “It’s a world where hundreds of super powered citizens shoot each other with eyeball lasers and grenades that are painted to look like pumpkins for some reason all the time. But the series will be about showing her that no, she’s not completely right. There are consequences to her actions. ”
No power. No responsibility. No rules. No limits. The Marvel Universe has a new player, and she’ll shoot and stab her way through anyone and everyone. Could she truly be Marvel’s least role-modely and least responsible character to date? She can if she tries! Find out this April as this marvelous mercenary makes her explosive entrance in THE UNBELIEVABLE GWENPOOL #1!
