Marvel’s Civil War Gets Rewritten in Peach Momoko’s Demon Wars: The Iron Samurai
Marvel Comics has announced that the Demon Days saga will continue as creator Peach Momoko‘s vision expands into the next installment titled Demon Wars: The Iron Samurai. The upcoming miniseries will take readers on another journey that blends the Marvel universe with Japanese folklore and Marvel asks readers to be ready “to choose a side” as Momoko gets ready to reimagine the iconic Marvel event Civil War. The new take on the event will come complete with new versions of our heroes such as Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, and more.
Marvel‘s description of Demon Wars: The Iron Samurai reads:
“Peach Momoko returns with another saga filled with wondrous creatures: sentient samurai armor, a winged individual in a falcon mask, a mysterious panther person, and a red, snakelike monster with a deadly appetite. When Mariko Yashida finds herself in the middle of a war between these creatures, will she be forced to choose a side?”
Momoko talked about her excitement about adding to what she calls the Momoko-verse and bringing more of the Japanese folklore she loves to Marvel in the press release, saying:
“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. 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.”
Demon Wars: The Iron Samurai #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on July 13th, 2022. Check out the covers below:
