*After playing an iconic comic book character on the big screen, actor Michael B. Jordan has now crafted one from scratch.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the “Fantastic Four” star is teaming with writer Nathan Edmondson to pen “North,” an action spy comic that will include illustrations from Eisner-winning artists Denys Cowan, Bill Sienkiewicz and Bettie Breitweiser.
The series follows a soldier who is recruited into a top-secret paramilitary program that modifies his mind to make him a spy like no other. When an operation goes south, he is betrayed by the organizations he serves but quickly discovers he is far more dangerous than even his betrayers realize.
Two issues have already been completed, and while the duo want the comic to stand alone on its own merits, one of the goals is to craft an eventual film producing vehicle for Jordan, notes THR.
Jordan, a comic book fan, met Edmonson at one of Los Angeles’ top comic shops, Golden Apple. The duo bonded and decided to collaborate on their own comic.
The series will be published by Dark Horse Comics in 2016.
