With the trailers for this summer’s movie starting to show, it makes sense that Marvel would want to start a new series. I am guessing the first collection will be available in time for the movie.
This story follows the efforts of Scott (Ant-Man) Lang to get a new job and a fresh start. Writer Nick Spenser does a great job of capturing the voice and characterization of the main character (and the other characters). The theme of this issue was new beginnings. Scott’s ex-wife says that he cannot have their daughter stay overnight until he gets a better place. The sequence of Scott competing against the other candidates for the Head of Security opening at Tony Stark’s company is a classic. Once again showcasing his grasp of characterization, Spenser nails the personality of Tony Stark. I would like to see him do a stint on the Iron Man title.
