Marvel is releasing a graphic novel called Marvel’s Voices #1 on February 19, 2020, that is available for pre-order now. If that title sounds familiar, it’s probably because my The Radical Geeks podcast co-host Angélique Roché has a podcast series with Marvel by the same name. Where every month, she gets to interview some fantastic creators, celebrities and fans of color about their favorite Marvel heroes.
This one-shot anthology is a mixture of both comics and prose. It features the return of Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and other stories featuring the Hulk and Wolverine, Black Panther, Killmonger, She-Hulk, Black Widow, Ant-Man, and the rest of the Marvel Universe. All of the comics in the anthology are brand new and take place after the events of HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X. And guess what? I’m in it!
That’s right, I got a chance to write one of those prose pieces that I just mentioned. So lookout for an essay entitled “The Legacy of Isaiah Bradley: The First Black Captain America.” Not only was I thrilled to have contributed, but I’m in the book with the legendary artist Kyle Baker. The original artist on the Truth: Red, White and Black series, in which Isaish Bradley made his first appearance.
The graphic novel features work by some amazing talent including Vita Ayala, Roxane Gay, Brian Stelfreeze, Geoff Thorne, Anthony Piper, Kyle Baker, Evan Narcisse, Method Man, Rob Markman, Chuck Brown, And David F. Walker. Plus Artwork By Brian Stelfreeze, Anthony Piper, Kyle Baker, Sanford Greene, Damion Scott, Ray-Anthony Height, Alitha E. Martinez, Natacha Bustos, And Luciano Vecchio. Marvel’s Voices is edited by Chris Robinson and can be purchased at the links below.
