‘Demon Wars’ gets second installment in November with ‘Shield of Justice’

The second chapter in Peach Momoko’s ‘Demon Wars’ saga arrives in November.

Demon Wars kicked off today with a planned four-part story with Demon Wars: The Iron Samurai, but you’ll have to wait a bit for the second installment. Marvel Comics has revealed Demon Wars: Shield of Justice will be coming to comic shops on November 16th.

The vivid new world crafted by Peach Momoko and co-scripted by Zack Davisson is reimagining the Civil War event through the lens of Japanese folklore. It’s not officially listed, but it’s more than likely Ariana Maher is lettering the issue.

“I am very happy to expand the series and get to show more of the love that I have for Japanese folklore and the way it inspires me with new stories told through my Momoko-verse lens,” Momoko said.

So what’s Demon Wars: Shield of Justice about?

It’s Iron Samurai VS. Shield of Justice! Mariko Yashida is torn between two worlds: the human world and the yokai dimension–a strange world filled with stranger creatures. The denizens of the yokai dimension need Mariko’s help to stop a war that’s brewing between two factions, one led by the Iron Samurai and his spider-like ally, and the other by a shield-wielding warrior and his panther-like right hand. The clash between them could have cataclysmic consequences for both worlds!

Momoko added, “I am also very excited to redesign even more characters because I love character designing! It is a honor to tell my version of the classic Marvel Comics event, Civil War. My story and characters are already so different from the main Marvel Universe designs, and this series will give fans a chance to see even more fun layers and different takes on Marvel storytelling. “
