Ed Brubaker's "Incognito"

Ed Brubaker, the writer of such awesome Marvel titles as Captain America, Uncanny X-Men, and Daredevil (basically any Marvel title worth reading) is about launch a new creator owned series called Incognito.

Newsarama has a nice short interview with Brubaker about the new title, which Brubaker describes here:

Incognito is a dark exploration into the nature of good, if that makes any sense. It's about a completely amoral guy with super-powers forced to pretend he's a normal law-abiding citizen, because he's in Witness Protection, and how that shapes what he becomes. It's also a brutal noir twist on the super-hero/super-villain genre that delves more into their roots in the pulps, and it's going to be pretty over-the-top and action-packed.

The article talks about Brubaker's other creator owned Marvel project, the brilliant crime series Criminal. Brubaker is Marvel's MVP at the moment (sorry, Mark Millar and Brian Michael Bendis, but tis true), so I have faith that this will be as great as all of his other stuff.

The article also has a teaser, which shows how moody cool this will be.
