Marvel Comics kicking off ‘Silk’ solo-series in March 2021

Cindy Moon returns in SILK #1 when it swings into comic shops in March!

Press Release

Today, Marvel Comics has revealed Silk is returning to her own solo series in March 2021. Originally slated for July, the series was delayed due to the pandemic, but now has a March release date.

Written by Maurene Goo (I Believe in a Thing Called LoveSomewhere Only We Know) and drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa, the Korean superhero is back! “The opportunity to write a Korean-American super hero—a woman, no less—is one that I never thought would come my way,” Goo said in an interview from earlier this year. “I’m so excited to flex this writing muscle and to explore new stories for Silk—a character I love. Her fierceness and loyalty are qualities I understand and relate to, and I hope readers feel the same as she fights new foes and protects old friends.”

New York, NY— December 16, 2020 — Silk’s newest solo series, written by acclaimed novelist Maurene Goo (I Believe in a Thing Called LoveSomewhere Only We Know) and drawn by superstar artist Takeshi Miyazawa, will make its long-awaited debut this March! Back in 2014, Silk took the comic book world by storm when readers learned that Peter Parker wasn’t the only one who was bitten by the radioactive spider in Amazing Fantasy #15. Equipped with unique spider powers of her own, Silk quickly proved to be one of Marvel’s most fascinating new heroes and will now embark on thrilling new adventures packed with action, drama, and surprising new threats.
