“This series is not just the debut of an exciting new character, but the explosive new beginning of an entire universe of comics – the Absolute Comics Universe!” said Powell. “In addition to new characters and concepts from the mind of Jamie Tyndall that we’ll be announcing soon, the months to come will see the publication of AMPED, DARCHON, DUEL IDENTITY, KATRINA, WAYWARD LEGENDS, and WAYWARD SONS – all of which tie into our girl Gabby in one way or another, including through special ‘WHITE WIDOW VARIANT’ cover edtions.”
