Cloak & Dagger #1 - this week
Wednesday, March 31st brings CLOAK AND DAGGER #1, the first solo -- well, duo -- title for these fan-favorite Marvel characters in almost twenty years. This self-contained one-shot grows out of C&D's recent appearances in the X-Men titles, but no prior knowledge of the X-Men, Cloak, Dagger, or American comics (its history and practices) is required.
I had a blast dropping these characters into a new era, and Mark Brooks did an AMAZING job on the art, aided by Walden Wong on inks and Emily Warren's luminous color work.
You can read the first seven pages here or here!
Go here to hear me blather for fifteen whole minutes about C&D, writing, and editing!
