Writer Ed Brisson is coming on board the ongoing Secret Avengers series during Infinity, as announced on Marvel.com.
"In Secret Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. and company have to step out from the shadows," Brisson is quoted. "It’s a prime opportunity for our core S.H.I.E.L.D. team — Nick Fury, Agent Coulson and Maria Hill — to step up and make sure there’s a home for the Avengers to come back to. They go from covert missions to straight up overt battles with Thanos' thugs in the streets of Brooklyn."
On Twitter, Brisson stated that he's on the series for two issues, which starts with October's Secret Avengers #10. Regular series writer Nick Spencer tweeted that his absence from the book is a break, rather than a permanent departure.
"I love the way the Secret Avengers normally operate," Brisson told Marvel.com. "But when their own planet is being attacked by hordes of alien invaders it only makes sense that S.H.I.E.L.D. would get out there on the front lines and defend their home. Added to the mix is a new superpower on their team, one who quite literally drops into their laps and helps fill the gap while most of the Secret Avengers are off planet."
Brisson's previous writing credits include Comeback, Murder Book and the upcoming Sheltered, all from Image Comics.
