Now that Silver Sable has officially returned from the dead in Amazing Spider-Man, her old ongoing series will also be resurrected as part of "Legacy" with Silver Sable and the Wild Pack #36, a November one-shot that picks up the original series' numbering.

Via CBR, Silver Sable and the Wild Pack #36 is written by Christina Faust, best known for her prose work, with art from Paulo Siqueira. 

"Silver Sable is the perfect character for me to dip my toes into the Marvel universe," said Faust, who previously co-wrote the comics book series Peepland for Titan Comics. "While I’ve done work in other genres, I’m primarily a hardboiled crime writer. I’m particularly attracted to gritty, complex stories in which the line between good and evil isn’t always so clear. Silver Sable is nobody’s hero, but she’s not an evil villainess either. She has no superhuman powers, she’s just an extraordinarily tough woman trying to make her own way through a treacherous and violent world. She’s morally flexible when she needs to be, but still has a heart. And hey, I love a bad ass chick with silver hair, because my hair started going silver at a young age too. I’ve finally stopped dyeing it dark, and from now on I’m going to tell people I’m not getting older, I’m just cosplaying Silver Sable!"

"Even though this is only my second comic project, I’ve been writing tie-ins and novelizations for over a decade," she continued. "I’ve written for a wide variety of film and television properties including Supernatural, Fringe, Nightmare on Elm Street and everybody’s favorite, Snakes on a Plane. I love being invited to play in established universes. It can be a challenge to find fresh and interesting ways to present preexisting characters while still staying true to the established cannon, but it’s the kind of challenge I really enjoy."

As for what the story itself entails, Faust kept mum - but did drop a big teaser for what fans can expect.

"I had originally pitched it as my take on Die Hard, but with a female lead," she explained. "I don’t want to give away too much, but she’ll be going through a physically and mentally grueling ordeal that will require every drop of stamina and ingenuity she can muster. As for the threat, I’ll just say that she’ll be facing down a unique, all female terrorist group."

And as for the Wild Pack themselves, Faust says "Because it’s a one-shot, the focus will be primarily on [Silver Sable]. However I do plan to include a fun cameo or two."
