During their Marvel’s Voices panel at the New York Comic Con today, Marvel announced several upcoming projects for February that tie into Black History Month, including a new Marvel’s Voices anthology, a Bloodline miniseries and more.
Let’s start with the new Marvel’s Voices anthology, which this time around will focus on a specific set of characters: Marvel’s Voices: Wakanda Forever. The stories will feature Black Panther, Shuri, Okoye and more by as-yet-unrevealed creative teams.

“Ever since we first started bringing Marvel’s Voices into our comics back in 2020, it’s been so inspiring to see our stories grow and evolve, bringing up a fantastic lineup of new characters and creators,” said Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski. “Looking ahead to 2023, we’re excited to expand the anthology series to broaden our focus on characters and families, giving our writers, editors and readers more stories and more characters in the grand tradition of Marvel’s Voices.”
Also announced at the panel was a new five-issue miniseries featuring Blade and his teenage daughter — Bloodline: Daughter of Blade:
Bloodline was introduced earlier this year in the pages of the Avengers/X-Men Free Comic Book Day issue in a story by writer Danny Lore and artist Karen S. Darboe.
Here’s the description from Marvel: Brielle Brooks is a good kid, no matter what her teachers say—it’s not her fault she’s developing vampiric super powers and the undead want to brawl! And as if problems at school aren’t enough, Bri’s got a wild ride ahead of her… she’s about to discover she’s the daughter of the infamous vampire hunter and Daywalker known as Blade.
Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #1 arrives on Feb. 1, along with another new project featuring a new hero “54 years in the making” — Silver Surfer: Ghost Light.
This one is by award-winning writer John Jennings and artist Valentine De Landro, who worked on Mister Miracle and Bitch Planet. This miniseries will run for five issues. Here’s the description:
Toni Brooks and her family have moved into the quiet town of Sweetwater. But nothing is quite what it seems with their new home. What mystery did Toni and her family unravel that would call upon the Sentinel of the Spaceways—the Silver Surfer?! And just who or what is GHOST LIGHT?
Finally, Bishop of the X-Men will star in a new miniseries where he’ll be training Krakoa mutants how to be bad ass. Bishop: War College is by TV writer J. Holtham and artist Sean Damien Hill, who previously worked on Blood Syndicate and The Hated, among other titles.
Here’s the description: Armor, Surge, Cam Long, Aura Charles, Amass – these are his students. Their course objective: Get strong. Defend the island. Keep Mutantkind safe. Their first lesson: HOW TO FAIL. And they’ll do it in spectacular Marvel fashion. What does any of that have to do with Bishop’s vision of the X-Men – and this new X-Men team? Guess you’ll have to read it, True Believer.
Class is in session on Feb. 8.
