Fans have been waiting a while for the latest and final issue of the Mark Millar/J.G. Jones series “Wanted,” but now we have proof that it’s on its way. Top Cow has provided CBR News with six pages of artwork from “Wanted” #6, due out December 15th from Top Cow and Image Comics. The final issue has something of a surprise for readers and we’ll let Top Cow’s Editor-In-Chief Jim McLauchlin explain.
“The ‘blank’ panels you see on pages six and eight are going to be filled in by a legendary Silver Age artist,” McLauchlin told CBR News. “It’s a guy who myself, Mark Millar and J.G. Jones all worship at the altar of. There will be a ‘flashback’ sequence that tells a little of the ‘Wanted’ backstory. Mark wanted to go with a Silver Age guy, and like I say-we lined up a legend.”
More on who that artist is later. To learn more about the series, check out our interview with McLauchlin from last year. For now, click the images below for a preview of “Wanted” #6.
