Rising Stars: Untouchable will be ready for your touch earlier than expected! The first issue of Top Cow Productions' March-solicited series will be in stores February 22. Rising Stars: Untouchable #2 will follow in short order, hitting stores on March 29.
Ripped from the pages of the monumental Rising Stars, readers will learn the truth behind Rising Stars "Special" Laurel Darkhaven's telekinetic secrets in this new limited series. Writer Fiona Avery (Amazing Spider-Man, the award-winning Araña) and artist Brent Anderson collaborate on this five-issue series, which focuses on Darkhaven's intrigue-filled career as a CIA assassin.
"Brent Anderson is well ahead of schedule," said Top Cow Editor Renae Geerlings. "All the art for #1-#4 is done, and Brent is well into the final #5 before #1 even hits stands. Retail may order with confidence. Readers may read with confidence. And Brent is doing some amazing, beautiful work on this series!"
