The Press Release:
Recently announced as a member of the inaugural class of Marvel’s Stormbreakers, superstar artist Peach Momoko has taken the comic world by storm with her mega-popular variant covers. Now, Marvel Comics is proud to announce this elite artist will be making her Marvel Comics writing and interior art debut this March with DEMON DAYS: X-MEN!
DEMON DAYS: X-MEN will be the start of a five-part prestige series bringing to life characters like Wolverine, Psylocke, Venom, and more in Momoko’s one-of-a-kind style. Each issue of the series, released once every three months, will feature some of the most popular Marvel heroes, setting the stage for an all-new saga that will leave fans mesmerized.
The Demon Days Saga will kick off when a wandering swordswoman with a psychic blade arrives at village that’s being targeted by demons. One demon is black and white with a terrifying red tongue and another may be the strongest demon there is! Ready your katana and enter a mysterious world of demons, monsters, mutants, and magic in a stunning premiere issue that will present readers with a revolutionary reimagination of the Marvel Universe that could only come from Peach Momoko.
“A dream come true. Not only did Marvel offer me to do interiors, but to do everything myself and tell a Marvel story like no other. A ‘Momoko-verse’ was born,” Momoko told Marvel.com. “Because I love Yokai stories, horror, Japanese folktales, classic samurai tales… I wanted to tackle as much as possible using these concepts with Marvel characters and make something Marvel fans can still appreciate but also bring it in a fresh direction.”
Head over to Marvel.com now for a look at some stunning interior pages from DEMON DAYS: X-MEN along with an exclusive interview with Peach Momoko. And don’t miss book ONE of FIVE of the DEMON DAYS saga when it launches this March!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sounds interesting but lately when it comes to mini-series I’ve been holding back until the run of single issues get collected into a single volume. Of course, I might just purchase the first issue and see if I run into Peach at one of the upcoming Comic Conventions, provided those sorts of things happen again in the coming year. I mean I don’t see them happening but let’s prove me wrong world. I love the art that Peach brings to the table and of course I love the X-Men so its a nice combination. As I close this announcement up I wonder what you readers think about the news. Are you fans of Peach and will give this a chance? Chime in down below in the comments section because its nice to hear from you and reminds us that you are still out there and doing okay. See you next time. We have a lot in store for you in the coming 2021 year despite the halt of all live events so please stay tuned.
