Marvel Announces New CLOAK AND DAGGER Digital Exclusive Comic Series!
Read the first issue by Dennis Hopeless & David Messina now, available in the Marvel Comics App or on ComiXology!
New York, NY—June 6, 2018— Ahead of their television debut this Thursday night on Freeform, Marvel is excited to announce a new CLOAK AND DAGGER digital exclusive comic series written by Dennis Hopeless (Spider-Woman) with art by David Messina! The 6-issue monthly limited series begins today, and readers can download the first issue right now in the Marvel Comics App or on ComiXology and Kindle!
After meeting as runaways, vigilante teenagers Tyrone (“Cloak”) Johnson and Tandy (“Dagger”) Bowen were illegally experimented on and gifted with mysterious powers. As the living personifications of light and dark, their complementary abilities force them to rely on each other as they team up to save innocent people on the streets of New York, and around the world. This in-continuity Digital Series has been specifically designed to welcome new readers while giving long-time Marvelites the latest eagerly-awaited chapter in this fan-favorite duo’s story.
“With CLOAK AND DAGGER, we’re telling the story from two very different perspectives at the same time,” writer Dennis Hopeless told Marvel.com in an interview. “Tyrone and Tandy are fundamentally intertwined characters, but they see the world through different lenses. It’s been a lot of fun playing with that shifting perspective. We let the reader into each of their heads, sometimes even showing the same scene from two different angles. Just like in life, it’s the differences that propel the drama.”
For more about CLOAK AND DAGGER, check out Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger digital comic launch trailer which features editor-in-chief C.B. Cebulski and editor Devin Lewis talking about the new series, as well as a sneak peek at exciting art! To embed the trailer on your site, please use the below embed code:

New York, NY—June 4, 2018—This June marks 50 issues of Kamala Khan, and in MS. MARVEL #31, we’re celebrating…slumber party style! As MS. MARVEL #31 brings Kamala, Zoe, Nakia and Mike together for a best friends sleepover, Marvel is also bringing along some very special friends to commemorate this landmark issue.
Marvel is also excited to announce that in addition to rising stars and award-winning creators such as G.

Named one of the most influential American Muslims in the media, Minhaj has made waves as an actor, writer, and activist.

Later this summer, he’ll be seen in the upcoming comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me.
Along with this stellar line-up of writing talent, Marvel is excited to announce that series regular artist Nico Leon will be joined on MS. MARVEL #31 by celebrated artists Bob Quinn, Gusatvo Duarte, and Elmo Bondoc.
“This issue is a truly a one-of-a kind celebration! In honor of all the different kinds of fans Ms. Marvel has, we thought it fitting to make this a jam session of rockstar talent from across the comics and entertainment industry,” said editor Sana Amanat. “It’s a special story with all the heart and humor we’ve come to love with Kamala Khan. We’re thrilled we made it to 50 issues. Here’s to the next 50!”
Will Kamala be able to save Jersey City AND her party? It’s an epic adventure in a very special landmark issue of MS. MARVEL, coming to comic shops this June!
