LOS ANGELES, March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ Nathan Edmondson, Augusta, GA native, writer and charity activist known for his work on Black Widow and Who Is Jake Ellis? debuted on the comic scene with his first comic title from Image Comics ten years ago.

Dancer is also soon to be a movie.
Following Dancer, Edmondson wrote the critically-acclaimed ongoing series The Activity, following the high-action exploits of a secret special operations team.
