MARVEL'S LUKE CAGE: CITY OF FIRE

Marvel Comics has announced an October launch for Luke Cage: City of Fire, a three-issue series that explores the role Luke Cage has grown into in Harlem and the broader Marvel Universe.

The series is written by Ho Che Anderson, with art by Farid Karami on #1, Ray-Anthony Height on #2. and Sean Damien Hill on #3.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"A shadowy rogue group named the Regulators are terrorizing ordinary citizens in New York City, and Luke Cage is called to action when a black man in his community is murdered by a crooked police officer. Cage quickly crosses paths with Daredevil, who is determined to bring down the Regulators no matter the cost, but Mayor Fisk is equally determined to use them to tighten his grip on the city. There is unrest in the streets, and it's up to Cage to keep the city from going up in flames."

"I can't express how excited I am to be doing a project with Marvel, and about the level of talent they've lined up to work on it with me,," Anderson said. "I have been given the freedom to explore a subject I'm so passionate about through the lens of characters I've loved since I was a kid, and I fully intend to work overtime to make sure the results are worthy of the trust I've been granted. Fortunately, the heavy lifting will be accomplished by my incredible collaborators who'll make me look better than I am!"



BRIEFLY

Gunn said, with The Suicide Squad, "I just wanted to do the ulimate, all-time comic-book movie."
