Thanks to Dennis Barger at Wonderworld Comics for forwarding us the news that there will be a new Deathlok comic book released by Marvel, starting in October.

Deathlok is, of course, the cyborg, originally from Detroit, created by Detroiter Rich Buckler. He appeared on the TV show Agents of Shield earlier this year, his live action debut.

This new comic will be written by Nathan Edmondson and Mike Perkins. "'Deathlok' is an opportunity to turn the distinction between ally and foe within the Marvel universe right on its head," Edmondson told The Hollywood Reporter. "Wrapped up in bleeding-edge tech, our 'Deathlok' series will take what readers remember of the iconic anti-hero and what viewers love now of the character portrayed by J. August Richards in 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and dive in with a twisting story of espionage and family."
