Marvel Comics Celebrates February's Black History Month With New Variant Covers, Backup Stories, And More

Marvel Comics has released a tonne of new details and artwork for next February's Black History Month celebrations, including awesome variant covers featuring heroes like Black Panther, Blade, and Storm.

During last month's New York Comic Con, Marvel Comics announced some of the exciting things coming our way for its Black History Month celebrations next February. The publisher will launch a number of titles centred around Black heroes and creators, along with a new edition of Marvel's Voices anthology series, Marvel Voices: Wakanda Forever.

Now, we have details about the stories and creators that will be part of the issue, along with all four Black History Month variant covers. We also have news about special backup stories that will appear in select issues that month. 

Marvel Voices: Wakanda Forever #1 will feature five all-new stories spotlighting the iconic heroes of Wakanda, brought to life by an incredible lineup of both fan-favourite creators and talent fresh to the Marvel Universe. We'll join them as they grow and expand the inimitable world of Wakanda in tales of myth, adventure, strife, and more. 

  • T'Challa’s grandfather, Azzuri, learns a lesson as a teenager that will have a dramatic impact on Wakanda’s present in a moving story by writer Adam Serwer (Wakanda) and Marvel Studios storyboard artist Todd Harris!

  • T'Challa must grapple with a crisis of faith and goes to a surprising ally to help get him through it in a thrilling tale by writer Karama Horne, author of the recent Black Panther: Protectors of Wakanda book, and artist Alitha E. Martinez, known for her work on Black Panther and Miles Morales: Spider-Man

"Ever since we first started bringing Marvel’s Voices into our comics back in 2020, it’s been so inspiring to see our stories grow and evolve, bringing up a fantastic lineup of new characters and creators," says Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski.

"Looking ahead to 2023, we’re excited to expand the anthology series to broaden our focus on characters and families, giving our writers, editors, and readers more stories and more characters in the grand tradition of Marvel's Voices."

As for those backup stories, Thor #31 will include a team-up story featuring Thor and Black Panther by writer Cheryl Lynn Eaton and artist ChrisCross, while Moon Knight #20 will see the crescent crusader crosses paths with the Sheriff of the Vampire Nation, Blade in a story by writer Danny Lore and artist Ray-Anthony Height.

Spider-Man #5 features Spider-Man and Photon in an action-packed adventure by writer Justin A. Reynolds and ChrisCross, and Scarlet Witch #2 will see two of Marvel’s biggest powerhouses, Scarlet Witch and Storm, join forces in a story by writer Stephanie Williams and artist Chris Allen.
