Following in the footsteps of the Jessica Jones series announced earlier this week, Marvel has unveiled three new “Marvel Digital Originals” via media partner IGN. Marvel’s “MDOs” are double-sized comics released monthly on digital comics platforms and later collected into print trades, all based on the characters featured in Marvel’s TV universe.
The new series consist of Daughters of the Dragon by Jed McKay and Travel Foreman, Luke Cage by Anthony Del Col and Jahnoy Lindsay with a cover by Declan Shalvey (so don’t #artcred tweet us bro), and Iron Fist by Clay McLeod Chapman and Guillermo Sanna with a cover by Khoi Pham.
Check out the solicitations below:
