Jonathan Lethem, comic book writer

“Omega the Unknown, the enigmatic super hero first introduced by Marvel Comics in the 1970s, will be re-introduced early next year in an updated series written by Jonathan Lethem. The series will mark Jonathan Lethem’s first comic book writing effort. The initial storyline will center on a teenage prodigy from Washington Heights, and his relationship with Omega, a mysterious and silent Super Hero from another world. The 10-issue series will launch in early 2006.”

Last year Lethem penned an ode to Marvel Comics for the London Review of Books.
