Coming in November, a New Solo Series for 'U.S.Agent'

Christopher Priest and Stefano Landini bring back the Super-Soldier you love to hate!

Announced today by ComicBook.com, industry legend Christopher Priest will unite with all-star artist Stefano Landini to launch U.S.AGENT #1 this November!

In “American Zealot,” Chapter 1 of 5, John Walker, the former Super Patriot, has been stripped of his official USAgent status and is now operating as an independent government contractor protecting government covert interests. His latest protection detail draws him into a conflict between a small town and the corporate giant trying to destroy it. John acquires a new partner and new enemy along the way while being haunted by ghosts from his past and confronting challenges to his future...

"'American Zealot' is a morality play told in five acts," Priest expands. "John Walker has been fired. Or he quit. Depends on who’s telling the story. Now finding his way as a civilian government contractor, Walker is making more money and taking more risks as he can now venture into places sanctioned agents can’t always follow. However, with limited official access to intelligence data, the now-former USAgent’s missions can and often do lead him into blind alleys he’ll need to MacGyver himself out of.

"I was thrilled to be invited back to Captain America," Priest continues, "until I realized it was this guy, Cap’s scowling, emotionally damaged misfit cousin. Cousin America. But USAGENT presents an exciting writer’s challenge to explore the myriad expressions and aspirations of the American dream, how that dream is fulfilled or not, through the eyes and voices of a nation often at war with itself. John Walker is a man often at war with HIMself, so Marvel knows no better a protagonist for this journey, this stumble, this Parkour carom through the many visions of the greatest nation on Earth.”

"I am incredibly excited to be part of this new project dedicated to USAgent together with this incredible staff," adds Stefano Landini. "The story set up by Christopher is truly intense and full of twists, I can't wait for readers to see the incredible work we are doing with their own eyes."
