This is something we can get behind. The Atlantic and The New York Times contributor Eve Ewing (who also just happens to live in Chicago—like us!) will join Champions artist Kevin Libranda for Ironheart, an all-new ongoing series featuring Invincible Iron Man breakout character Riri Williams!
Details are scarce at this point, but Marvel has rolled out its cover gallery for Ironheart #1 ahead of its November 2018 solicitations. That gallery is below, along with concept art by Libranda and information from the official Marvel release! Don’t miss out—Ironheart brings a new voice to the Marvel Universe this fall!
From Marvel: This November, Riri Williams is forging her own path…into a brand-new ongoing series! Announced today on The Chicago Tribune and Marvel.com, Riri’s new story will bring out her hometown roots with Eve L. Ewing at the helm, as the award-winning author of Electric Arches makes her Marvel debut! A poet, scholar and artist whose work has appeared in the New York Times and The Atlantic, Eve will be joined on the series by Champions artist Kevin Libranda.
“People don’t just gravitate toward Hulk or Captain America or Spider-Man because of their powers, the reason they say so-and-so is my favorite superhero is because of who they are as people and about what they stand for,” Ewing told The Chicago Tribune in an interview. “So I think the really exciting thing is really building out Riri, not as just Ironheart, but who is she as a person?”
First created by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato Jr., Riri made her Marvel Universe debut following the events of Civil War II, when she used her own teenage genius smarts to suit up in the wake of Tony Stark’s absence.
