Image Comics has announced that Guarding the Globe, the mini-series spinning out of Robert Kirkman's Invincible, will return as in September as an ongoing series from Skybound/Image Comics.

Phll Hester will write the series, with art by Todd Nauck. Readers will be given a taste of what's to come from the new creative team from Image's offering on Free Comic Book Day, May 5.

"The Invincible Universe has outgrown its parent title and I'm very excited about being able to tell larger, more in depth stories with some of the key players from that book in this series," Kirkman said. "Phil Hester and Todd Nauck are well known to fans of superhero comics and I think people are fully aware that they're going to knock this book out of the park."

Here's how Image describes the book:

"Familiar yet fresh, Guarding the Globe will appeal to fans of the back-to-basics approach to superhero comics that Invincible is known for. Heroes both familiar and new struggle to protect Earth in Invincible's absence. As the Viltrumite War rages on within the pages of Invincible, the ranks of the Guardians of the Globe are suddenly depleted. The world is in danger, and the team is in search of new blood."

"When Robert first approached me about this ongoing series, I knew I wanted to be a part of Guarding the Globe," said Nauck, whose creator-owned series Wildguard was published by Image. "I really respect what Robert's accomplished so far with the series and I'm having a blast drawing this book. I feel it's my best work to date."

"When Robert floated the idea it didn't take me very long to say yes," Hester said. "The characters in Guarding the Globe have the same kind of freshness Invincible does. It's a great chance to both pay homage to super heroes and upend them a bit in way that isn't cynical, but humanizing."
