Blake Northcott To Relaunch All-New Fathom For Aspen In February 2017 – And Other Solicits
Blake Northcott is the author of the bestselling Arena Mode Saga, the highest-grossing science-fiction novel series on Kickstarter has been a correspondent for CBS Man Cave, took over the backpages of Millarworld titles and even wrote for Bleeding Cool, for her sins.
And now she is taking over one of the longer running franchises in comics, albeit one that has floundered of late, Fathom, created by Mike Turner, published by Aspen, and lusted after by Megan Fox.
Well in February, Aspen will publish All-New Fathom #1, the first published solo comic book credit for Blake Northcott as writer, though she is also co-writing Chapterhouse Comics' Agent of PACT which debuts in January.
While artist Marco Renna, has a few small credits on F1rst Hero and Actionverse. But both are rather new to comic books.
