Marvel Comics drops ‘King in Black’ bomb of solicits and cover art

King in Black is taking over Daredevil, Savage Avengers, and more!

Ahead of the January Marve Comics solicitations, Marve has released a pack of King in Back covers and solicitations. The solicits cover one-shot stories, the main event, and Knull’s invasion of Daredevil, Guardians of the Galaxy, Savage Avengers, and more.

And by more, I mean key X-fan content like S.W.O.R.D. #2 and the inclusion of Danni Moonstar in King in Black: Return of the Valkyries.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Check out the cover art and solicitation text below!
