Happy Friday everyone, we’ve learned that for Black History month, Marvel will be producing a special one-shot titled Marvel’s Voices: Legends #1. It will feature four all new stories featuring some of their well known black heroes. The issue is set to hit stands at the end of January so they can start the month of February off right! Also it should be noted that Misty Knight will be celebrating 50 years as a character so you know I love to see you. That said, here’s what we know about some of the stories taking place.
Writer David F. Walker and artist Eder Messias bring Patriot back to the spotlight with a bold tale of corruption, abuse, and the hope that springs eternal! Locked in a fierce showdown with Crossbones, Elijah Bradley has to explore his own family’s legacy and remind himself of his heroic destiny in order to save the day!
Writer Justina Ireland kicks off Misty Knight’s milestone year with an action-packed Daughters of the Dragon adventure! See why Misty Knight and Colleen Wing are one of the best duos in the Marvel Universe as they take down crime in style!
TV writer Ezra Claytan Daniels (Doom Patrol) makes his Marvel Comics debut alongside artist Sean Damien Hill (BISHOP: WAR COLLEGE)! Michael Collins has always used his Deathlok abilities to be a force for good. Now, after an epic battle, he lies broken beyond repair. To continue the fight, he’ll be forced to make a game-changing decision!
Honestly, I can’t believe Elijah Bradley aka Patriot is making a comeback. It’s been far too long since we’ve last seen him take center stage. I mean Young Avengers: Children’s Crusade and that was 13 years ago since that story wrapped up. I mean sure he’s been in other series but more so in a minor role or as a cameo but to have Elijah back in focus for once. I couldn’t be happier to see him taking on Crossbones next year. As always, let us know if you’re picking up this issue and I will catch you later!
