(AP) PHILADELPHIA - Writer Neil Gaiman is returning to Marvel Comics this summer, and he’s bringing the red-haired heavenly bounty hunter Angela with him.
The publisher announced Thursday that Gaiman’s angel will return first in the pages of "Age of Ultron" No. 10 in June. She’ll appear again in Marvel Entertainment’s "Guardians of the Galaxy" No. 5 in July that Gaiman will co-write with Brian Michael Bendis.
Gaiman’s previous comic outings include revered runs on "The Sandman" and "Marvel 1602."
He created Angela in "Spawn" No. 9, and she was one of three characters who formed a long copyright dispute between Gaiman and Image Comics co-founder Todd McFarlane.
The pair reached a confidential settlement in early 2012.
