One of the most iconic heroes in the Marvel Universe, Ant-Man is celebrating his 60th Anniversary, and what better way to celebrate it than a brand new Four-Issue Series.

Marvel recently announced the new four-issue series with the creative team of writer Al Ewing, who redefined the Hulk in IMMORTAL HULK, and artist Tom Reilly, who has been doing a phenomenal job on his take on The Fantastic Four’s THE THING. From Hank Pym, Eric O’ Grady, to Scott Lang, each issue will focus on each individual Ant-Man, beginning at the Silver Age and leading up to a strange new adventure involving the new Ant-Man from the Future who seeks to connect them all so they can face off against a threat only they can hope to defeat! The Comic Series is set to launch in June.

Ant-Man #1 begins with a flashback to the early days of Hank Pym’s career as the astonishing Ant-Man! It’s date night for Hank and his girlfriend Janet Van Dyne, but nobody told that to Ant-Man’s enemies! Watch as Hank’s ant-agonists band together to finally take down the scientific adventurer! But will anyone come to his rescue? And who is the mysterious stranger who stalks him? Ewing and Rilley had a chance to share their thoughts on the upcoming series and their excitement:

For Ant-Man’s ant-iversary, we wanted to go BIG with the world’s smallest hero — burrowing an ant tunnel right through his sixty-year history and far beyond, from the wild and wooly 1960s all the way to a future you’ll have to see to believe! You’ll find out how Henry Pym, Scott Lang and Eric O’Grady impacted each other’s lives in ways they never knew themselves — but who’s the mysterious final member of this Ant-tastic Four? Tremble with ant-icipation, true believer — the answers are coming soon to a hill near you!

“I’m very excited to work with Al again, this time to celebrate, and add to, the legacy of Ant-Man! Several different people have taken the name, and Al’s written a fun story that gives them all a chance to shine. I also look forward to working with Jordie Bellaire again, her colors elevate any book that she’s on. There’s lots of inspiration to be taken from Ant-Man’s rich artistic history, and there’ll be plenty of room for both of us to experiment in this series. I can’t wait for everyone to check it out!”
