Reggie Hudlin comes to AWA Comics

reggie hudlin headshotComic book publisher AWA Studios recently announced a partnership with filmmaker and famed comic book writer Reggie Hudlin to create a new line of “original stories featuring diverse characters.”

AWA did not announce any of the new titles. They also didn’t mention and information about any of the characters Hudlin plans to create at AWA other than providing a general release date of “late 2023” for the first of the unannounced projects.

Hudlin, who is a part of AWA’s recently form Creative Council and is amongst the leader team of the revived Milestone Media, will be working with AWA chief creative officer Axel Alonso to develop the line of comics, which AWA also hopes will branch into film, TV, and other media, tapping into Hudlin’s background in the industry. Hudlin and Alonso are not strangers to one another. The duo’s working relationship began during Hudlin’s long run on Black Panther at a time in which Alonso served as Marvel Comics’ editor-in-chief.

“Axel and I have a long history of incredible work together and I am excited to break ground on these new projects with him and the AWA team to bring fans original stories centered around heroes from underrepresented backgrounds,” Hudlin stated in the announcement. “AWA’s bold vision for storytelling and putting creators first is the future of the business and I’m looking forward to showing fans what we can create together.”

“Reggie and I share so much in common in terms of editorial goals and wanting to bring fresh, diverse voices and representation to the industry and I am excited to collaborate with him again to build on the success we had in the past with Black Panther and Spider-Man with a new slate of original stories,” Alonso added.

No more details of Hudlin and AWA’s plans have been disclosed. As always, check in here at grandadmiral.net for more on this and other news in the world of comics.
