The Press Release:
He’s been a breakout star since he could bark, a faithful sidekick to his Inhuman masters, and has helped protect an empire. Now, he’s got his own mission to take on — Marvel is excited to announce LOCKJAW #1, a new four-part mini written by Daniel Kibblesmith with art by Carlos Villa.
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!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sure sounds like it will be a fun read and while I know I will be leafing through it on the racks, I might wait until a collected edition is available before I add it to my collection. Who knows, I might change my mind when I see it in the local comic book shop. I’ve always liked the character Lockjaw because there was just something cool about him. I must admit that he was one of the best parts of the horrible “Inhumans” show that aired earlier this year on ABC. They barely used him but when they did it was okay. Don’t go looking to see if I am telling the truth about the show’s quality because it was dreadful and I don’t want you to waste your time. Back to the comic book series, what do you think about this announcement? Sounds like a little good clean fun doesn’t it? Chime in down below with your own thoughts and I will see you next time around.
