Announced during today’s “Women of Marvel” panel at New York Comic Con, Nicole Perlman, who co-wrote this year’s biggest movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, is returning to the farthest reaches of the galaxy for a new comic book series from the publisher centering on one of the cinematic superheroes.

Perlman will make her comic book debut with Gamora, a new series spinning out of the regular Guardians of the Galaxy series next year. Not only does the series mark a first for Perlman, it’ll also be a first for the fictional assassin, who has previously only appeared as a supporting character or team member in her entire four-decade history.

The new Gamora series will be the fourth spinoff from Marvel’s central Guardians of the Galaxy title when it debuts in spring 2015, following Rocket Raccoon, The Legendary Star-Lord and Guardians 3000. In addition to this expansion, Marvel announced a second crossover between the franchise and its X-Men line earlier this weekend, with The Black Vortex, a storyline running through multiple series launching in February.

Gamora isn’t the only new series announced by Marvel during the convention that ties in with a Marvel Studios product. A new Ant-Man series will begin in January, it was revealed earlier on Sunday, as will a mini-series called Operation S.I.N., featuring Peggy Carter and Howard Stark — just in time for the ABC debut of the Peggy Carter television series.
