Coming soon from Jimmy Palmiotti and Cat Staggs

She's big, he's little it's...

With cover by Amanda Conner

From DC's website

Written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti and illustrated by Cat Staggs and Rich Perotta, PHANTOM LADY will star the female Freedom Fighter in the debut of her own 4-part miniseries. And joining her will be her partner-in-crimefighting, the diminutive dynamo known as Doll Man.

“Phantom Lady and Doll Man is an exciting return to the roots of the characters as pulpy, street level crime fighters with a few new twists and some heavy sci-fi overtones,” Justin Gray told THE SOURCE. “We took the best of their original core concepts and updated them with no relation to our previous work on Phantom Lady and Doll Man in the Freedom Fighters. You're getting in on the ground floor of the origin story of two people whose lives intersect and a common threat that transforms them into pretty amazing and engaging superheroes.”

“We are super excited to reconnect with characters we have been so close with over the years, and getting to create something both exciting and visually cool in the process,” continued Jimmy Palmiotti. “With this series, we dig into who Phantom Lady and Doll Man are, how they came to be and how they fit into DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. There is something for everyone here and we are having a blast!”

“I have to say I am really enjoying what Jimmy and Justin have created,” said Cat Staggs. “It is a wonderful take on a classic character. The story itself leans towards a gritty crime noir, which is something I am a huge fan of. Getting to draw this on a daily basis is a dream! I can’t wait for fans to see it!”

Have to say, this does sound like it could be fun.

Oh, and if you're not familiar with Cat Staggs, may I suggest here and here for samples of her work

I'm getting a Hank Pym/Janet Van Dyne vibe here, if you remember a certain scene and this is s_d, after all.

Yeah, I wasn't gunna be the first to say it, but you're definitely not the only one who went there. >_>

(I'm a-hopin' and a-prayin' that Jimmy and Justin go there... Or, I suppose, that Doll Man goes there, rather.)

(...BOY, I hope we're talking about the same scene.)
