Writer Ethan Sacks and artist Robert Gill are teaming up for Marvel’s new series “Old Man Quill” in February 2019. Announced yesterday by Marvel editor-in-chief CB Cebulski at Italy’s Lucca Comics convention, the new series will star a geriatric version of the Guardian of the Galaxy, and explore the cosmic corner of the world first introduced in Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s ‘Old Man Logan,’ and expanded upon in Sacks and Marco Checchetto’s maxiseries “Old Man Hawkeye” (which concludes in December).
When asked for comment by CBR, Sacks stated the newest “Old Man” story came about as “Captain America’s gone and the X-Men are gone,” which led him to wonder “what the Guardians of the Galaxy were doing,” and in the process “tak[ing] that world and expand[ing] it into a universe.” Robert Gill has previously illustrated “Iceman” and “The Totally Awesome Hulk” for Marvel. Andrea Sorrentino and Rod Reis will be handling art chores on the first issue variant covers, with Reis’s variant and the new “Old Man Quill” logo being shown off by Cebulski at the Lucca event.
Look for Marvel’s latest exploration of the “Old Man” Universe in February of next year. For more from writer Ethan Sacks and the images from the announcement panel, head over to the Comic Book Resources website.
