“Aero’s got beautiful art, a really unique character, some crazy villains, and a story that introduces you to a new and interesting part of the Marvel Universe,” promises Editor Mark Paniccia.
“We wanted to make sure that this was a modern take on the origin of the character,” Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski said. “When we were searching for creators, Zhou Liefen and Keng came in and we knew [they] would be the perfect fit for what we were trying to accomplish.”
