During the Image Comics panel, it was announced the company is planning on bringing back everyone’s favorite Swiss Army Knife wielding hero – MacGyver.

The mini-series, called “MacGuyver: Fugitive Gauntlet”, will be five issues and arrive next summer (2012).

“I don’t want to give too much away, but there’s a gauntlet that MacGyver has to run, and he does it as a fugitive, hence the title,” writer Lee David Zlotoff said. “Let’s just say that someone with an axe to grind decides to play a game with him. He has to live out a week while every hitman in town is after him. A seven million dollar bounty is on his head, and every day it drops by a million. So the hit men have it in their best interests to kill him quick, and he has it in his best interest to run out the clock. But at the same time, he has to find out why this person wants him dead and what the true story is here.”
