Marvel has announced plans to release another addition of Marvel’s Voices during Black History Month in February, similar to the one arriving this week to celebrate Indigenous history. This one is titled Marvel’s Voices: Legacy and will feature a variety of stories by Black creators.
“I don’t think comics can call itself a successful industry unless it’s reached out to all kinds of fans,” said the anthology’s co-editor, Sarah Brunstad. “Comics are a medium, not a genre, you know? So it’s immensely important to me that we bring in new readers and make them welcome in the Marvel Universe. We do that by telling all different kinds of stories with all different kinds of creators.”
Some of the creators they’ve recruited to contribute include:
- Nnedi Okorafor (Shuri) will write a Venom story highlighting the importance of heroes who fight for the downtrodden.
- Danny Lore (2020 Ironheart) is doing a Blade story.
- Ho Che Anderson (King) brings Luke Cage fans “an old-school story about the choices that make a hero.”
- Author Tochi Onyebuchi (Beasts Made of Night, War Girls) will tell “an action-packed tale of a wild night in Madripoor” featuring Domino
- Stephanie Williams will conribute a Monica Rambeau story.
- Artists working on the stories include Ken Lashley, Sean Damien Hill, Valentine de Landro, Chris Allen and more.
Also in February, artist Ernanda Souza will make her Marvel debut with a series of variant covers across several Marvel titles. Check out three of them below:
