In a world populated by fearsome thieves, mercenaries and ne’er do wells – there is one who is a HEAD above the rest. M.O.D.O.K.! The Mental Organism Designed Only for KILLING!

A job that will force him to go toe-to-toe with Doc Ock, Bullseye, Baron Mordo and more – and that’s just the first issue! Believe us, bullets will fly and heads will roll this May when M.O.D.O.K. ASSASSIN #1 comes to town!
What is up with M.O.D.O.K. lately? The big-headed AI is just about everywhere it seems and Secret Wars will obviously be on the receiving end of a whole lot of him. Far from a laughing stock in this book though, the big (headed) guy is apparently a world-class killing machine. Who’d a thunk it?
I imagine this issue is set to be somewhat tongue in cheek with humor to spare, because really, we’re talking about M.O.D.O.K. here. Aside from the laughs (again, I’m assuming), the comic will also have the writing talents of Chris Yost and pencils from Amilcar Pinna. I’m not all that familiar with Pinna, but from the preview pages below, his work is looking all kinds of great.
MODOK Assassin #1 arrives on the shelves this month, on May 27th.
