As part of AAPI heritage month, Marvel comics will be releasing a series of variant covers crafted by beloved artist Inhyuk Lee. These pieces will depict Marvel’s Iron Fist, Taegukgi, and Sister Dagger as well as longtime fan favorite Sister Grimm (Nico Minoru) of Runaways fame. Running all throughout May, each one of these variants also has a backup story coinciding with their respective series’ titular characters. Details below, taken directly from Marvel’s press release.
- DAREDEVIL #11’s AAPI HERITAGE MONTH STORY will be written by Jason Loo and drawn by Lynne Yoshii. Before becoming the new Iron Fist, Lin Lie’s legendary Sword of Fu Xi was shattered! Now, Daredevil and Iron Fist find themselves face-to-face against a pair of water demons who’ve come to claim the shards of the sword that are embedded in Lin Lie’s body and soul!
- DOCTOR STRANGE #3’s AAPI HERITAGE MONTH STORY will be written by Amy Chu and drawn by Tokitokoro. Readers have seen Nico Minoru’s mystical skills grow in recent titles like Strange Academy and Midnight Suns. Now, flashback to her days as a teenage runaway and witness her first meeting with her future ally and mentor, Doctor Strange.
- GHOST RIDER #14’s AAPI HERITAGE MONTH STORY will be written by Jon Tsuei and drawn by Tadam Gyadu. Fresh off his thrilling adventures in Tiger Divison, Taegukgi, South Korea’s greatest superhero, comes to California to investigate a series of mysterious and supernatural deaths that have ties to his past. When a ghostly threat emerges, he’ll have to team up with Ghost Rider to take it down!
- WOLVERINE #33’s AAPI HERITAGE MONTH STORY will be written by award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang, known for his acclaimed work on Shang-Chi, and drawn by Peter Nguyen. Yang will revisit his recent contribution to Shang-Chi’s legacy, Sister Dagger. Shang-Chi’s fierce younger sister is after a mysterious creature terrorizing the streets of Paris…and so is Wolverine! Witness their daggers and claws cross paths as two of Marvel’s deadliest fighters do what they do best!
Now, each of these comics is written and drawn by a diverse lineup of creators including established talent and rising stars. These stories reflect the diverse cultures and backgrounds of the AAPI community, showcasing the home they have in the Marvel Universe.
The AAPI heroes of Marvel take center stage all year long!
