Original Avengers Return In Steed And Mrs. Peel: We’re Needed

From BOOM! Studios—

 

 Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce the July debut of a groovy new limited series that celebrates the cornerstone of modern spy fiction: STEED AND MRS. PEEL: WE’RE NEEDED. Based on the classic British television show, The Avengers, this series centers on super-spies John Steed and Emma Peel, who were instrumental in forming ideal smart, witty, and stylish spy heroes back in the mid-1960s. This is the third series based on the duo to be published by BOOM! Studios.

Writer Ian Edginton (Hinterkind, Leviathan) and artist Marco Cosentino will craft two, three-issue story arcs. In the first, they take Steed and Peel on their most psychedelic adventure yet. When an old associate of John Steed is killed, a grand conspiracy is suspected. This leads Steed and Peel to a strange village and an unexpected imprisonment for one of the spies. In the second story arc, Steed and Peel investigate a mysterious menace inside a prison. Prisoners are being mind-controlled by an unseen force and it’s up to Steed and Peel to discover how and what for.

“Bringing back STEED AND MRS. PEEL with Ian Edginton and Marco Cosentino has been a project we’ve really been looking forward to,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Ian’s voice for the characters is dead-on and Marco brings the spy-fi style in spades. You can tell they’re having fun, and it translates to the page.”

STEED AND MRS. PEEL: WE’RE NEEDED #1 arrives in comic shops on July 23rd with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAY141140. The main cover is illustrated by Stacey Lee, and retailer incentive cover will be available in a limited quantity by Babs Tarr. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer?
