Like the previous two Freedom Fighters miniseries, the new comic will be written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti.
DC announced today that they would be releasing a new Human Bomb miniseries written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti with art by Jerry Ordway. This is the third Freedom Fighters miniseries that the two writers have written since the New 52 began. The first, The Ray ran furing the winter months of this year while Phantom Lady (featuring Doll Man) is currently being featured in a new miniseries.
Like the previous two miniseries, The Human Bomb will be a new character with a new origin. According to an interview with CBR, the new character's name will be Michael Taylor, an army veteran dealing with post traumatic stress syndrome. Palmiotti and Grey have admitted that the miniseries are leading up to some sort of Freedom Fighters team-up, but it's unknown whether it will be a new series or not. Low sales have plagued both The Ray and Phantom Lady; neither surpassed the 20,000 sales mark and The Ray's final issue couldn't surpass 11,000 sales.
This isn't the first attempt the two writers have had at rebooting the Freedom Fighters franchise. The two writers released two miniseries in the aftermath of Infinite Crisis followed by a short-lived series in 2010.
