New Art And Details Released For Marvel Knights’s Upcoming Miniseries And 20th Anniversary Celebration

New MK 20th Anniversary Art By Joe Quesada

Coinciding with the 20th Anniversary of the Marvel Knights imprint, it was revealed last July at San Diego Comic Con that a new miniseries revolving around the “knights” would be unleashed later this Fall. Marvel.com released a new piece of art (above by Joe Quesada) and exclusive details regarding the series and its 20th Anniversary celebration today.

Writers and Characters: With writer Donny Cates (Cosmic Ghost Rider, Venom) as series runner and writers Matthew Rosenberg (Punisher Legacy: War Machine, The Punisher Ongoing (2018 – ?), Tini Howard, and Vita Ayala on support, the six-issue Marvel Knights miniseries will debut this upcoming November and will revolve around Daredevil, The Punisher, Elektra, Black Panther and “others” as they “unravel a mystery that affects every hero and villain in the Marvel Universe”.

Artwork: Regular cover art for the miniseries will be provided by Geoff Shaw, with Jae Lee contributing a full set of variant covers. The first issue will be drawn by Travel Foreman and the second issue by Niko Henrichon. Additional details for further issues have not been disclosed.

HINT: The title of the newly released art was titled “mktbd2018001_quesada_hidgem_var”. We assume this image will be one of the unannounced variant covers for Issue #1. 

20th Anniversary Celebration: Marvel.com also teased a “digital comics promotion” coinciding with the Knights’s anniversary and a “variant program” featuring the work of John Cassaday, JG Jones and Terry Dodson. We assume that the “digital comics promotion” will involve sales (done semi-regularly on Amazon and Comixology) or free digital issues surrounding the Marvel Knights series.

Additionally, Marvel will be reprinting several first issues of select series involving Marvel Knights characters at the price point of $1 this upcoming September via its “True Believers” program. Check out those releases below by clicking the dropdown arrow to the left:
