Marvel Comics taps Peach Momoko for ‘Demon Days: X-Men’ #1

Peach Momoko presents her spectacular vision for the Marvel Universe starting this March!

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed a new X-Men miniseries is on the way and it’s by superstar cover artist Peach Momoko. In fact, Momoko writes and draws the interiors of the comic which goes by the title Demon Days: X-Men. The five-part series brings to life characters like Psylocke, Venoma, and Wolverine. The series will release a new issue every three months.

“A dream come true. Not only did Marvel offer me to do interiors, but to do everything myself and tell a Marvel story like no other. A ‘Momoko-verse’ was born,” Momoko told Marvel.com. “Because I love Yokai stories, horror, Japanese folktales, classic samurai tales… I wanted to tackle as much as possible using these concepts with Marvel characters and make something Marvel fans can still appreciate but also bring it in a fresh direction.”

The Demon Days Saga will kick off when a wandering swordswoman with a psychic blade arrives at village that’s being targeted by demons.

Ready your katana and enter a mysterious world of demons, monsters, mutants, and magic in a stunning premiere issue that will present readers with a revolutionary reimagination of the Marvel Universe that could only come from Peach Momoko.
