Projects Currently on Deck for Zub in 2022

1) A fun and frantic superhero team book with new faces and some deep cuts.

Revealed: An all-new Thunderbolts mini-series published by Marvel.

2) A deep dive into the continuity of one of the most recognizable heroes in the business, making it easier for new readers to understand their history.

Revealed: Life of Wolverine Infinite comic series on Marvel Unlimited.

3) Returning to a pair of sadistic + sarcastic troublemakers, setting them against a bedrock part of nerd culture.

6) Collaborating with a gaming legend on a story spun out from the new world they’ve been building.

7) Alternate world story on a mythic scale for one of the biggest characters in comics.

8) Mini-series for a sword & sorcery legend I’ve been itching to get back to for years.
