The series will be written by Ian Flynn, with interior art provided by a new artist each issue: Tracy Yardley (issue 1), Adam Bryce Thomas (issue 2), Jennifer Hernandez (issue 3), and Evan Stanley (issue 4). The main covers for the series will be provided by Tyson Hesse. Variant covers will be provided by Nathalie Fourdraine, Rafa Knight, Jamal Peppers, Jonathan Gray, and Sonic Mania artist Kieran Gates.
After the quartet of weekly April releases, the ongoing series will settle into a monthly release schedule in May.
