GABBY RIVERA AND JOE QUINONES SET A NEW COURSE WITH

MARVEL COMICS’ AMERICA

“Worlds to save…You know how it is.” – America Chavez

New York, NY—November 22, 2016 — Next year, prepare for some of the hardest hitting Super Hero action Marvel Comics can muster – so hard that it will literally shatter the barriers between worlds. Marvel Comics presents AMERICA

 

Coming in March, 2017, critically-acclaimed YA novelist, Gabby Rivera (Juliet Takes A Breath), and artist Joe Quinones (Howard the Duck) continue the high-octane adventures of America Chavez, Marvel’s Latina powerhouse, as she plants her feet, punches her way through dimensions, and faces off against an oncoming alien horde all while managing her social life and trying to attend various classes on alternate Earths.

 

Since her introduction, Chavez has stood side-by-side with some of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel Universe and next year America is ready to set a new course which will alter her in drastic new ways. Speaking exclusively with Refinery29, Rivera said, “America doesn’t know how powerful she is, but she’s gonna find out. And the powers she does have are going to be expanded upon and she’s going to learn how to control and develop them.”

 

Gabby continued, “I think some of the really fun Marvel moments are gonna be when we bring in key players like Captain America and Storm. They are going to be able to help America on her journey. And teach her things about her powers or lead her along the way.”

 

“America has one of the most dedicated and enthusiastic fanbases out there, so we wanted to make sure we could deliver a solo series worthy of that devotion,” said Editor Wil Moss. “That’s why we’re so thrilled to welcome Gabby Rivera to the Marvel fold, as she’s got America’s voice down pat, plus she’s got a ton of surprising and fun ideas for the series. And combining that with the one-of-a-kind stylings of the great Joe Quinones? Well, we’re ready to deliver that solo series now.”  

 

Marvel Comics’ AMERICA breaks through and arrives in comic book shops this upcoming March, 2017.

Marvel Announces Three New INHUMANS Titles For 2017!

New Comics Launching as Part of RessurXion

New York, NY—November 23rd, 2016 — A new day dawns on the Inhumans this Spring as the super-powered race charges headlong into RessurXion! From the ashes of Inhumans vs. X-Men comes new stories, new creators and unbelievable action. Today, Marvel is pleased to announce three brand-new Inhumans titles – ROYALS #1, BLACK BOLT #1 and SECRET WARRIORS #1 – coming in 2017.

 

“For anybody who is even slightly curious about the Inhumans, or for anybody who might be looking to check back in with them, these launches are for you,” said editor Wil Moss. “Exciting new directions, crazy talented creative teams, and a different vibe for each of these three books. ROYALS is epic and intimate all at once, opening up all-new corners of the Marvel Universe on a monthly basis. SECRET WARRIORS is gonna be a real crowd-pleaser, a true roller coaster of a story with a cast of all your favorites (plus a few surprise team-members). BLACK BOLT is the line’s secret weapon, an intense exploration of the unknowable King of the Inhumans, with visuals like you’ve never seen – believe me.”

 

It all kicks off in April as blockbuster creators Al Ewing (Ultimates, New Avengers) and JonBoy Meyers travel to the stars and beyond in ROYALS #1! Abdicating the throne and leaving the destiny of Earth’s Inhumans in the hands of the next generation, the Royal Family of Inhumans will travel to the far reaches of space on a grave mission. Back to the Kree homeworld and beyond, they’ll seek out he origins of the transformative Terrigenesis itself. They must uncover who they are, if they ever hope to discover who they may be. And thousands of years from now, the legends will say that seven set out on the journey, but only six returned…

 

Then, Hugo Award Nominated novelist Saladin Ahmed (Throne of the Crescent Moon) makes his Marvel Comics debut alongside fan-favorite artist Christian Ward (Ultimates) to bring you BLACK BOLT #1! With a voice that could crack a planet in half, the monarch of the Inhumans finds himself somewhere he never thought possible – imprisoned on the edges of the cosmos! The newest resident of a prison designed to house the most dangerous criminals in the galaxy, Black Bolt must throw his lot in with murderers and thieves in an effort to plot the impossible: an escape!

 

Finally, the action returns to Earth as the next generation of Inhumans comes together to keep the future of their race alive in SECRET WARRIORS #1! Rising star creators Matthew Rosenberg (Kingpin, Rocket Raccoon) and Javier Garron (Star-Lord, Inhumans vs. X-Men) bring you a tale of action, adventure and a group of heroes that play by their own rules. Be there as Quake assembles Ms. Marvel, Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur, Inferno, Karnak and a few surprises to make up the most dysfunctional super hero team out there – a group of kids in way over their heads, fighting to save the world.

 

The die is cast. The table is set. The future of the Inhumans begins this spring as RessurXion brings you three exciting new titles! For more information on ROYALS, BLACK BOLT and SECRET WARRIORS, visit Marvel.com for interviews with the creators.
