"[Senior Vice President, Publishing] Tom Brevoort put it together and he didn't need to sell me on the team," Alonso told CBR News. "For Al Ewing -- who's done great work on 'Mighty Avengers' and 'Loki' -- it's the great opportunity to tell an even bigger story featuring characters who's Q-rating is off the charts squaring off against a villain whose Q-rating will be off the charts very, very soon. And Alan Davis -- what can you say? The eyes don't lie. He's amazing."
The first issue of "Angela: Asgard's Assassin" went on sale this week, and Friday's AXEL-IN-CHARGE also contained a look at the second issue of the series, scheduled out in January:
"We regard Angela as a huge character," Alonso told CBR in August. "Neil Gaiman helped devise an origin that explains how she's always been here, that weaves her history into that of Asgard, and positions her as a character of real consequence to Thor and Loki. She's powerful and she's got a huge chip on her shoulder, as you'll see, and we've assembled a great creative team in Kieron Gillen, Marguerite Bennett, Phil Jimenez and Stephanie Hans to tell her story."
