Man's best Inhuman, the teleporting canine Lockjaw, is headed to comic book stores in his own 4-issue miniseries come February 2018. Lockjaw did have a sort of solo effort with a reprint collection of stories in Lockjaw: Dog Days earlier this year, but he'll get his own book with all-new material early next year.
The series will be written by The Late Show writer Daniel Kibblesmith and have art by Carlos Villa. It doesn't look like Lockjaw will be joined by the other Pet Avengers (why not Marvel?!) this time around, but he will get the A-grade assistance from Dennis Dunphy the Demolition Man aka. D-Man to help him track his siblings down.
Here's the press release:
When Lockjaw finds out his long-lost siblings are in danger, he'll embark on a journey which will result in a teleporting, mind-bending adventure. "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," said series editor Wil Moss. "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!"
You heard us: Grab a leash, prepare your mind, and teleport along with Lockjaw when LOCKJAW #1 hits comic shops this February!
