Marvel to Address School Shootings in Champions #24

Posted by August 17, 2018 Comment

Pursuing its slogan of representing “the world outside our window,” Marvel Comics will finally tackle the subject of school shootings in an upcoming issue of Champions. The company revealed the news via media partner Newsarama, who had both the scoop and a quote from writer Jim Zub.

Earlier this year, I started talking to Tom Brevoort about writing a Champions issue on the effect of gun violence in schools. Marvel has always strived to deliver ‘the world outside our window’ and this was too big a topic to ignore. Centered on Miles Morales, the story is about a tragedy and the trauma that ripples outward from senseless violence – and the people that come together to support each other to build a better future, which is the heart of every Champions story. I’m incredibly proud of everyone’s work on this issue, and I’m thankful we were given the chance to tell this story.

We’ll have to wait to see whether The House of Ideas addresses this delicate issue with the tact and sublety we’ve come to expect from the company who brought us Secret EmpireCivil War, and Avengers vs. X-Men, as the issue hits stands on September 12th with a new cover by the issue’s artist, Sean Izaakse.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
