Animation Superstar Takes on Luke Cage for New Series!
Sweet Christmas, the wait is finally over! Award-winning animator Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexterâ€™s Laboratory, Samurai Jack, Hotel Transylvania) comes to Marvel to bring his long-awaited Luke Cage tale to life! Written by Tartakovsky with art by Tartakovsky & inker Stephen DeStefano, Marvel is pleased to announce the hard-hitting, action-packed CAGE! #1 is due to be published this October!
Welcome to the mean streets of New York City â€“ shoes are big, bottoms are belled and crime is rampant! But in the heart of the city, the worldâ€™s hardest-working, smack-talking, chain-wearing, tiara-sporting super hero is hitting the streets hard and hitting the bad guys harder. This Hero for Hire is on the case, and his rates are reasonable! Heâ€™s Luke Cage, and heâ€™ll save your behind. Dig it!
â€œGrowing up with those [Power Man and Iron Fist] comics in the 70â€™s and 80â€™s I have a very strong fondness of that version of Power Man so my version is very rooted in that time, but I think itâ€™s totally fun and feels new,â€ says Tartakovsky, in an interview with Birth.Movies.Death. â€œIt was about making something entertaining with a character that I really liked. So I think it can appeal to young and old readers.â€
At long last, the eagerly anticipated series returns! Be there when CAGE! #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices this October!
CAGE! #1 (of 4)
