Michael B. Jordan To Co-Write North Comic Book Series


Creed star Michael B. Jordan will co-write North, a Dark Horse Comics series with writer Nathan Edmonson and artists Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz, THR reports.

The series will debut in 2016 and is described as a spy series, which is designed in part as a property the two can adapt to film for Jordan to produce. Two issues are already completed.

North -- not to be confused with the film of the same name -- "follows a soldier who is recruited into a top-secret paramilitary program that modifies his mind to make him a spy like no other. When an operation goes south, he is betrayed by the organizations he serves but quickly discovers he is far more dangerous than even his betrayers realize," per the report.

Edmonson created the comics Who Is Jake Ellis? and The Activity, both in development as feature films. He's also had notable runs on The Punisher and Black Panther.
