Totally missed this one yesterday while I was busy running around working on cool things for the site.  Marvel has released a sneak peek first look of the upcoming Taskmaster #1 by Fred van Lente and Jefte Paolo.

Penciled by JEFTE PAOLO

Taskmaster spent years training the world’s most dangerous villains how to kill, but when a rumor hits the streets that he is working for Steve Rogers, the deadly assassin finds himself the target of a billion dollar bounty hunt! And to find out who framed him, Taskmaster will need to discover his own secret origin! Who’s the man underneath the mask? Find out in Taskmaster #1!

The $3.99 issue arrives September 1, 2010.

      Kinda has a Deathstroke vibe.

        I was thinking that too. I think it’s the belt across the chest, sword, boots, gloves and underwear.

    Nice! He’s always been one of my favorites ever since that awesome Todd McFarlane cover to Amazing Spider-Man #308 way back in 1988 and can’t wait to learn more about his origin. Really loved the last Alvin Lee take on TM.
    I followed some of his exploits in Daredevil years ago when DD got his armored uniform and I still need to get the Avengers: Initiative series featuring TM.
