November Brings WARRIORS THREE By Willingham and Edwards

WARRIORS THREE Coming in November

With the Thor live-action movie set for May 6, 2011, Marvel Comics continues to announce projects featuring the God of Thunder and his cast of characters — the latest being Warriors Three, a four-issue series starting in November from writer Bill Willingham and artist Neil Edwards.

The Warriors Three are Thor's Asgardian allies Fandral, Hogun and Volstagg, all of whom appear in the feature film. Last week, Marvel announced limited series Astonishing Thor from writer Rob Rodi and Mike Choi, and debuted the upcoming four-issue Ultimate Thor last month at Comic-Con International: San Diego.

Willingham, best known for acclaimed, long-running Vertigo title Fables, has spent the bulk of his career with DC Comics. Edwards, among other Marvel work, recently illustrated Fantastic Four #581.

Here is the text of Marvel's official release, sent to press Monday afternoon:

Marvel is pleased to announce Warriors Three, a new limited series from best-selling writer Bill Willingham and red hot artist Neil Edwards! Hogun, Fandral, and Volstagg are the Warriors Three, allies of Thor and some of the greatest warriors the world has ever seen. When an evil from Hel, unlike any seen by man or God, makes its move, these Asgardians may be the world’s only hope! Don’t miss an all-new action packed epic presenting these heroes like you’ve never seen before—and it all begins in Warriors Three #1!
