Boom! Studios Teases Next Project by Mark Waid

Looks like Mark Waid might be working on the Avengers only not the line up you have in mind.

Mark Waid is no stranger to Boom! Studios. Waid was the Editor-in-Chief, and later, Chief Creative Officer and has been busy writing both IRREDEEMABLE and INCORRUPTIBLE for some time. It has been announced that both series are coming to an end with issues #37 and 30, respectively. So does that mean Waid is done writing at Boom!?

Looks like the answer is no. Boom! has released this visual press release.

While there isn't an actual confirmation, I think it's safe to assume that Waid will be writing Steed and Mrs. Peel, the original Avengers from the TV series that ran from 1961-1969 (with The New Avengers continuing in 1976). Boom! has been publishing STEED AND MRS. PEEL so perhaps we'll see the continuation of this series or possibly a new one (since Emma Peel wasn't the only partner John Steed had).

We'll have to wait for the official announcement to get all the details.
