Domino is set to headline her own series come this April, but the fan-favorite mutant won’t be on her own for her first solo outing. Marvel has unveiled the first preview pages for Domino #1 from writer Gail Simone and David Baldeon, and it appears Domino will also bring a dog along for the ride.
“It’s just a huge pleasure having Domino be my comeback to Marvel,” writer Gail Simone said in statement. “She’s everything I love about comics: a kickass female adventurer who lives life at maximum volume. I just adore her. I love writing mercs and mutants again, I love digging deep into what being those things means in a world where nobody trusts them, not even other mercs and mutants.”

Echoing her statements, Baldeon was quick to note his excitement on getting to join Simone on Domino, saying that the story they’re telling “feels very much like what people will think of when they think of Neena in the future.” He also revealed that the book is sexy and contains some of the best action he’s been able to draw as an artist. “It has drama and humor, and it takes you on one of the most exciting rides out there today,” he teased.
This will mark the luck-altering mutant’s first solo series after co-starring in multiple volumes of X-Force, Cable and X-Force and Deadpool & the Mercs for Money. The character can currently be seen in Weapon X, where she’s stars alongside Old Man Logan and Sabretooth. Domino’s first comic series comes at a time when the character is set to make her big screen debut in May’s Deadpool 2, where actress Zazie Beetz will tackle the role.
Simone and Baldeon’s Domino #1 goes on sale April 11.
