With the character of Karnak having a return appearance in Inhumans prior to Secret Wars which dealt with his death and how he actually survived, he’s still not a character that you would think of as getting his own series. But Marvel is doing just that on October 21st, 2015 with a new ongoing that comes from writer Warren Ellis and artist Gerardo Zaffino. Which, when taken in with the preview below, makes it pretty damn intriguing.
Plot concept: You may not know now, but you will! With the power to see the flaw in all things – systems, philosophies, structures, people – there is nothing he cannot defeat. But when Phil Coulson and S.H.I.E.L.D. request his help with a peculiar case, even Karnak may have met his match!
