SDCC: Marvel Adapts ‘Ender’s Game’
Marvel continues to expand on its comic adaptations of literary properties with the news out of Comic-Con that a six-issue miniseries of Ender’s Game is on the way.
The famed sci fi series was written by Orson Scott Card, who also has written Ultimate Iron Man for Marvel. The artist on that book, Pasqual Ferry, has signed on for this new Card project, which is scripted by Christopher Yost.
"I’m a fan, a big fan. So talking with him was one of the best experiences that I have had working on comics so far," Ferry told CBR News.

He gushed, "The human feelings of the characters and his interrelatedness of the work, the incredible quality of the story, the Battle Room action sequences…"
