30 years after the original "Atlantis Attacks" crossover event, Marvel is reviving the name for a new five-issue limited series debuting this January.

Atlantis Attacks by writer Greg Pak and artist Ario Anindito will pit Namor, King of Atlantis, against Pak's revamped Agents of Atlas team. The series will also feature the new Agents of Atlas meeting the original, Jimmy Woo-led team.

"We're all so hugely grateful to the fans who have supported every Agents of Atlas book we've put out. Because of you, we're able to keep going with the next epic chapter in which our heroes, determined to protect the people Portal City of Pan, face off against King Namor and Atlantis in their highest stake battle yet!" Pak said in a statement.

"The clash between Amadeus Cho's and Jimmy Woo's worldviews hits the next shocking level, Wave finally meets the other big fish in the sea, and the romance and adventure that's part of every Atlas reaches tsunami levels," the writer continued. "And get ready for spectacular art from Ario Anindito of Hulkverines and Sword Master fame and, yes, the return of the classic, old school Agents of Atlas!"

This follows two Pak-written Agents of Atlas limited series this year - the first a War of the Realms tie-in, and the second a standalone series running August through December.

"And seriously, I'd like to reemphasize how all of this is only happening because you've supported these characters and books," Paid said. "It's a dream come true to be able to tell so many stories featuring so many fun, diverse characters, new and old, and I thank you all for reading, reviewing, and talking up these books!"

Here is the solicitiation for Atlantis Attacks' first issue, debuting this January. Look for Marvel's full January 2020 solicitations later this month on Newsarama.
