Marvel’s special Women of Marvel #1 will star its female characters and will be written and drawn solely by women!
In celebration of its female characters, Marvel has announced that it will be publishing Women of Marvel #1. This will be a special, one shoot which will be written, drawn and created exclusively by women artists alone.
This is not the first time, however, that Marvel will be using the title Women of Marvel #1. In 2021 too, Marvel had released a special with the same title. And in 2010, as well, two-issue series had used the title for a few collections.
A motley mix of new as well as veteran, extremely talented female artists will be getting together to tell stories about the “fire, mystery, grace, and joy” of these characters that make them stand out. And, that, according to Marvel is what makes these women, phenomenal!
