Neil Gaiman, Angela character are Marvel-bound

March 22nd, 2013 in News

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Writer Neil Gaiman is returning to Marvel Comics this summer, and he's bringing the red-haired heavenly bounty hunter Angela with him.

The publisher announced Thursday that Gaiman's angel will return first in the pages of "Age of Ultron" No. 10 in June. She'll appear again in Marvel Entertainment's "Guardians of the Galaxy" No. 5 in July that Gaiman will co-write with Brian Michael Bendis.

Gaiman's previous comic outings include revered runs on "The Sandman" and "Marvel 1602."

He created Angela in "Spawn" No. 9, and she was one of three characters who formed a long copyright dispute between Gaiman and Image Comics co-founder Todd McFarlane.

The pair reached a confidential settlement in early 2012.
