Writer/artist Judd Winick is returning to the superhero genre in a big way, with his own creator-owned superhero universe.
The Mighty, scheduled to launch in summer 2022 from Random House Graphic, follows a 13-year-old girl who “discovers how to be the hero her world needs now and the hero she was born to be” according to Publisher’s Weekly.
“So, It’s official! I’m writing’ & drawin’ a new graphic novel series: The Mighty. I will still be doing my HILO series.(I have decided to forgo sleep.)” Winick tweeted. “Thanks Random House Kids, my editor Shana Corey, and my agent/ninja Jodi Reamer. A new adventure begins!”
PW reports that Random House Graphic has agreed to two volumes of The Mighty.
