Ho Che Anderson to write ‘Luke Cage: City of Fire’ this fall

The writer of ‘King’ and ‘Godhead’ teams up with three different artists for the three-issue miniseries.

Ho Che Anderson, writer of King, Sand & Fury and Godhead, will team up with three different artists for a three-issue miniseries starring Luke Cage this fall. Luke Cage: City of Fire finds Harlem’s hero taking on “a shadowy rogue group” called the Regulators, who have ties to NYC Mayor Wilson Fisk.

Farid Karami will draw the first issue, with Ray-Anthony Height doing issue #2 and Sean Damien Hill drawing issue #3.

“I can’t express how excited I am to be doing a project with Marvel, and about the level of talent they’ve lined up to work on it with me,” said Anderson. “I have been given the freedom to explore a subject I’m so passionate about through the lens of characters I’ve loved since I was a kid, and I fully intend to work overtime to make sure the results are worthy of the trust I’ve been granted. Fortunately, the heavy lifting will be accomplished by my incredible collaborators who’ll make me look better than I am!”

And the story, essentially, falls into the “continuity has been screwed up and now someone needs to fix it” genre, kind of like House of M and Age of Apocalypse. In this new reality, the Avengers never assembled, and the void they left was filled by the Squadron Supreme. Blade is the only Avenger who seems to remember how things should be.

June will bring issues #5-7 of the miniseries, which, like the first four, will have connecting covers:
