Original Avengers Return in Steed and Mrs. Peel: We’re Needed
Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce the July debut of a groovy new limited series that celebrates the cornerstone of modern spy fiction: Steed and Mrs. Peel: We’re Needed. Based on the classic British television show, The Avengers, this series centers on super-spies John Steed and Emma Peel, who were instrumental in forming ideal smart, witty, and stylish spy heroes back in the mid-1960s. This is the third series based on the duo to be published by BOOM! Studios.
Writer Ian Edginton and artist Marco Cosentino will craft two, three-issue story arcs. In the first, they take Steed and Peel on their most psychedelic adventure yet. When an old associate of John Steed is killed, a grand conspiracy is suspected. This leads Steed and Peel to a strange village and an unexpected imprisonment for one of the spies. In the second story arc, Steed and Peel investigate a mysterious menace inside a prison. Prisoners are being mind-controlled by an unseen force and it’s up to Steed and Peel to discover how and what for.
Steed and Mrs. Peel: We’re Needed #1 arrives in comic shops on July 23rd with a cover price of $3.99. The main cover is illustrated by Stacey Lee, and retailer incentive cover will be available in a limited quantity by Babs Tarr.
