Marvel will celebrate Black History Month with Marvel’s Voices: Legacy #1, featuring stories by new and established creators.
A Venom story by Nnedi Okorafor (Shuri) shows the importance of fighting for the downtrodden and Blade’s legacy is explored by Danny Lore (2020 Ironheart). Making their Marvel debuts, Ho Che Anderson (King) will tell an old school Luke Cage story, Tochi Onyebuchi (Beasts Made of Night) pens a wild night in Mardripoor with Domnio, and Stephanie Williams writes about family in a Monica Rambeau story.
These writers are joined by talented artists like Ken Lashley, Sean Damien Hill, Valentine de Landro, Chris Allen, and others.
“With each one of the stories created, we have a chance to see the unique perspectives of all the creatives involved, and in many ways, the impact of the over 80-year legacy of the Marvel Universe and its characters on writers and artists of color,” Angélique Roché told Syfy Wire. “That is the beauty of Marvel’s Voices, it strives to bring to the forefront the unique experiences and perspectives of diverse communities through the lens of – and our shared love of – the Marvel Universe.”
Marvel will also release Black History Month variant covers by artist Ernanda Souza, featuring Storm, Blade, and Black Panther.
