10 Things We Learned From Marvel's August Solicitations

10. Gwenpool Is Striking Back

Marvel Comics

When the Unbelievable Gwenpool ended in 2018, it seemed that that was that for Gwendolyn Poole. She would be forever stuck in a permanent loop, in issue #25, talking to herself and reliving the whole comic over and over, which would've been a shame. But fear not, she's striking back, in a way that only someone with Pool attached to their name can.

Determined not to get stuck in comic book limbo for the rest of eternity, it seems that little Gwendolyn has decided to make her mark on the Marvel Universe by unmasking Spider-Man and, hopefully, picking up some actual super-powers along the way.

Written by Leah Williams (The Totally Awesome Hulk and Giant Man) and illustrated by David Baldeon (Domino and Spirits of Vengeance), Gwenpool Strikes Back is currently only a limited series.

But if there is still as much love for the character as there was on her first outing, then maybe, just maybe, the sales figures will be high enough to convince those in power that she deserves another crack at the big time.
