Marvel Comics Will Celebrate Black History Month With MARVEL'S VOICES: LEGACY #1 By John Ridley And More
Marvel's Voices: Legacy #1 will feature stories by creators like John Ridley, Nnedi Okorafor, and Danny Lore, and we have a series of incredible variants featuring Miles Morales, Black Panther, and more.
In February, Marvel Comics is celebrating Black History Month with Marvel's Voices: Legacy #1, a one-shot featuring seven thrilling tales from all-star creators along with an introduction by New York Times best-selling author Nic Stone (Shuri: A Black Panther).
Eisner Award-winning writer Nnedi Okorafor (Shuri) pens a Venom story highlighting the importance of heroes who fight for the downtrodden. Explore Blade’s legacy – vampiric and heroic – in a story by writer Danny Lore (2020 Ironheart). And in their exciting Marvel Comics debuts, Ho Che Anderson (King) brings Luke Cage fans an old-school story about the choices that make a hero.
Author Tochi Onyebuchi (War Girls) tells an action-packed tale of a wild night in Madripoor with Domino, writer Stephanie Williams highlights family in a light-hearted Monica Rambeau story, and Marvel’s most promising young heroes - Ironheart, Ms. Marvel, and Shuri - team up for an adventure by award-winning novelist Mohale Mashigo (The Yearning).
Finally, Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley closes out this epic issue with a poignant look at the impact of Miles Morales (we're particularly excited to check this one out).
"I’m deeply appreciative of having had the opportunity to contribute to this amazing collection of narratives," Ridley says. "Marvel’s Voices reminds us all of the power of words, representation and self-expression. And to be able to add to the growing legacy of Miles Morales. That’s about as good as it gets."
Marvel Comics has shared a series of variant covers for the issue by Natacha Bustos, Olivier Coipel, Ejiwa "Edge" Ebenebe, Ken Lashley, and Ernanda Souza.
