Warren Ellis To Write Norman Osborn Backup Story

Now, we already know that this November there will be a miniseries called Osborn by writer Kelly Sue DeConnick that will explore the title character in his new role…as an inmate.

Well, the official solicit doesn’t add much we didn’t know, save for that there will be a backup story featuring Osborn written by Warren Ellis. Ellis can be credited with the reinvention of Norman’s character, as everything that Bendis did with him in Dark Reign came directly out of the characterization that Ellis gave him in Thunderbolts. So Ellis returning to the character, even for just a few pages at the time, is something I can not wait to see.

Here’s the solicit.
