Iron Man 2.0 writer Nick Spencer will pen a new miniseries about superhero runaways Cloak and Dagger for Marvel Comics later this year.

Announced at this weekend's Kapow convention in London, editor Steve Wacker confirmed that the Marvel exclusive writer would be teaming up with Osborn artist Emma Rios on the three-issue miniseres.

"Word is out! Me and Emma Rios, CLOAK & DAGGER! More to come," Spencer wrote on Twitter, after the news broke.

The two characters made their debut almost thirty years ago in Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #64, but have failed to sustain an ongoing series and have generally maintained a low profile in the Marvel Universe at large.

The pair featured in a special one-shot last year by former Detective Comics writer Stuart Moore, in which it was confirmed that they are not mutants as previously believed.

Cloak and Dagger will launch as a tie-in to the company's upcoming "Spider-Island" storyline in Amazing Spider-Man, following on from the couple's decision to leave the X-Men and return to New York City.
