November is when Marvel will be bringing the Marvel Knights imprint back, as has been teased recent. It will start with a 6-issue limited series called Marvel Knights. Donny Cates is the showrunner for this Marvel Knights revival and will be joined by the writing lined up of Matthew Rosenberg, Tini Howard, and Vita Ayala for the series. Yes, that’s a lot of writers. Travel Foreman is doing the art for #1 and Niko Henrichon will be doing the art for #2.
As is usually the case, Marvel is hyping that there will be variant covers, but Jae Lee variants are appropriate for a Marvel Knights nostalgia slate. More material and reprints are also being teased.
Official PR follows:
Beginning this November, return to the unmistakable aura that defines the murky and mysterious Marvel Knights with a brand-new six issue limited series to celebrate the iconic imprint’s 20th anniversary!
Series showrunner Donny Cates is joined by all-star writers Matthew Rosenberg, Tini Howard, and Vita Ayala as the Marvel Knights ride again. Daredevil, the Punisher, Black Panther, Elektra, and others attempt to unravel a mystery that affects every hero and villain in the Marvel Universe. And now it can be revealed that titanically talented artists Travel Foreman and Niko Henrichon will craft the action in issues #1 and #2 respectively! Covers will be contributed by the showstopping Geoff Shaw, and the genius Jae Lee will create a set of variant covers as well!
And this is just the beginning of a massive Marvel Knights celebration on its way.
In addition to Cates’ concussive limited series, fans can look forward to a digital comics promotion and a variant program featuring the work of A-list talent such as John Cassaday, JG Jones, and Terry Dodson! Plus, don’t miss a set of new trade paperbacks featuring the best of Marvel Knights, as well as two brand-new Omnibus editions.
