Marvel reveals 2024 ‘Dazzler’ X-Men series creative team and more

Everything we know about the upcoming ‘Dazzler’ X-Men series.

Press Release

Teased earlier this week, Marvel Comics has revealed the creative team behind the highly anticipated Dazzler series, and today we have info surrounding the series. Written by Jason Loo with art by Rafael Loureiro, Dazzler will launch on September 18th with a four-issue series.

Her tour may be for everyone, but backstage, Alison is joined by a crew of fellow mutants—head of security Domino, personal guard Strong Guy, one-man roadie Multiple Man, drummer Shark-Girl, and expert publicist Wind Dancer! Anti-mutant fervor has never felt more personal, but anyone who tries to dim Dazzler’s light will just have to face the music!

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

“Rafael and I are giving everyone backstage access to the greatest show of the decade: the Dazzler World Tour!” Loo said. “Sounds exciting? Not for Dazzler when she’s facing tons of pressure from all sorts of people trying to cancel her shows. But she’s not going down without a fight.”

So what’s Dazzler about?

OUT & PROUD AS A MUTANT AND BACK ON THE ROAD! Dazzler, Marvel’s glittering mutant songstress, has been in and out of the limelight over the years – but now the time has finally come for her to take center stage! Dazzler embarks on a new world tour, the culmination and celebration of her entire musical career. But while Dazzler may be ready to focus on her music, her celebrity-mutant status and a violent attack may sideline the entire endeavor before it’s even begun…

“Ever since I can remember, I’ve been crazy about two things: music and drawing comics. To think that I would be able to combine both passions in my Marvel debut is beyond my wildest dreams. Not only that, but with such an amazing X-Men character as Dazzler—I absolutely had to jump at the chance!” Loureiro shared. “When I read Jason’s script, I kept thinking to myself ‘Oh, I’m gonna have so much fun with this!’ Now, Dazzler has a special place in my heart, and I can almost hear her singing inside my head with every page that I draw. I’m honored to be a part of this project, bringing her into the spotlight for all readers and lifting her to her rightful place as a super star!”

This series will join three flagship titles: X-Men by Jed MacKay and Ryan Stegman, Exceptional X-Men by Eve L. Ewing,  and Uncanny X-Men by Gail Simone and David Marquez. Additional series include StormPhoenixX-ForceNYXWolverine, and X-Factor.
