Louise Simonson Writing John Carpenter's Storm Kids in Storm King May 2020 Solicits

Louise Simonson, long-time comic book writer and editor, may best be known for co-creating Power Pack, the young kids superhero comic from the eighties, who are all still present and correct in the Marvel Universe today. But in May 2020, she will be shepherding a new bunch of kids… writing Storm Kids, the new title in Storm King Productions' John Carpenter Presents line. Drawn by Guy Dorian Sr  – whose first professional comic was also a bunch of Marvel kids, The New Warriors, and coloured by Janice Chiang, it will also have a cover from her husband Walter Simonson.

Time to meet human-animal 'splices', Byrr, Fext and Cammo in space…

Byrr, Fext and Cammo: Hyperbreed human-animal 'splices' who've been given a cushy assignment, board an ancient freighter, transport valuable Explosive Ore to a mining colony, and earn a large delivery bonus.

Fighting against cruel odds, with Mak Yik crystals infesting their ship, our heroes begin to suspect that their lucky break is really a setup for annihilation.
