One of the most memorable characters in comics featuring the Inhumans royal family, Lockjaw also stars in the Inhumans TV show, and got a super cute plushie from Marvel at San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con in 2017.
Now, he’s got his own mission to take on in a four-part miniseries written by Daniel Kibblesmith (Quantum and Woody, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert) with art by Carlos Villa.
Lockjaw discovers that his long-lost siblings are in danger and sets out on a journey which will result in a “teleporting, mind-bending adventure”, according to Marvel.
Series Editor Wil Moss says:
We’re super excited about this book. Daniel Kibblesmith—a hilarious writer who works on The Late Show and recently published a book called Santa’s Husband—has cooked up an incredibly fun, heart-filled romp around the Marvel Universe. Back in BLACK BOLT #5, writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Frazer Irving finally settled the mystery of Lockjaw’s origin: He’s definitely a dog, birthed by a dog, who happens to have the power of teleportation.
But now we’re going even further: How did Lockjaw obtain that power? And is he really the only Inhuman dog in the universe? So in issue #1, we find out that Lockjaw’s got brothers and sisters. From there, we’ll be following everybody’s best friend around the universe as he tracks down his siblings—along with a surprising companion, D-Man! It’s gonna be a fantastic ride, all beautifully illustrated by up-and-comer Carlos Villa! So grab on to the leash and come with!
Lockjaw #1 will hit comic shops this February 2018.
