Marvel Taps The Goldbergs Creator, Adam F. Goldberg For New Damage Control Series

Marvel’s Unsung Heroes finally get sung! After the mega-powered battles and Hulk-level catastrophes, Damage Control is always there to clean up the mess and get things back to normal. But Damage Control is much more than just a glorified cleanup crew, and this new series will pull back the curtain and reveal the secret inner workings that were previously only available to people with Clearance Level Eight. And we’ll witness it all through the eyes of Gus: a fresh-faced, eager newcomer to the company who has no idea how chaotic his life is about to become.

Adam F. Goldberg (TV’s The Goldbergs) and Hans Rodionoff team up with Will Robson to take you into the secret labyrinth of Damage Control, where it’s totally common to run into familiar faces like Moon Knight! Nightcrawler! She-Hulk! And more!

Plus: A second story by Damage Control creator Dwayne McDuffie’s McSpouse, Charlotte Fullerton, as the Damage Control crew must clean up after the Infinity Gauntlet!

Goldberg shared, ”Damage Control has always been our favorite part of the Marvel Universe ever since it made its debut back in the 80s,” Goldberg said. “[Hans and I] literally cheered when Damage Control made an appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming and then again when they returned in Spider-Man: No Way Home. And yes, we saw both those movies together.” Hans added, “We’re both huge Marvel fans, and we also love The Office, so we knew Damage Control had all the makings of a really fun show. It’s a workplace comedy where Captain Marvel might visit your cubicle or you could end up doing trust falls with Thor at the company retreat.”

Launching a new Damage Control series, Goldberg said, allowed the team of creators to explore some never-before-seen areas of the department. “We got to do a little world-building and expand the mythology,” Goldberg explained. “And we also got to do a ton of really fun cameos, which is always one of the best parts of Damage Control comics… and those cameos absolutely must be part of the eventual show as well!” Hans agreed, “While we’re on the subject, I’d like to put a stop to the long-standing rumor that Damage Control is just a stepping stone to S.H.I.E.L.D. Not taking anything away from super-spies and enhanced operatives, but working at Damage Control is a true privilege and an honor. True story: I’ve seriously contemplated trying to get a job at Avengers Campus, just so I can get myself a Damage Control baseball cap and cargo vest.”

Issue 1 of the 5 issue series will be released in August.
