Marvel’s delayed Silk title by novelist Maurene Goo and artist Takeshi Miyazawa, which was originally scheduled for last July, will make its way into comic shops in March.
The title as originally announced at this year’s C2E2, back when we still had comics conventions.
“The opportunity to write a Korean American Super Hero—a woman, no less—is one that I never thought would come my way,” Goo said at the time. “I’m so excited to flex this writing muscle and to explore new stories for Silk—a character I love. Her fierceness and loyalty are qualities I understand and relate to, and I hope readers feel the same as she fights new foes and protects old friends.”
Goo is an accomplished author of young adult fiction; her novels include Somewhere Only We Know and I Believe in a Thing Called Love. Miyazawa, meanwhile, is the co-creator of the wonderful Mech Cadet Yu.
Silk debuted in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man back in 2014, and has since gone on to team with other Asian and Asian-American characters in the pages of Agents of Atlas. She was bit by the same spider that bit Peter Parker. This will be her third solo series. In the new series, she’ll be working for Spidey’s rival-turned-ally, J. Jonah Jameson, and fighting a cat demon named Kasha.
With the announcement of the new launch date, Marvel also revealed several variant covers for the first issue:
