Silk Returns In New Solo Series In March

by James Ferguson

Marvel Comics has announced a new solo series featuring Silk, the second person to be bitten by the infamous radioactive spider in Amazing Fantasy #15. Written by Maurene Goo and illustrated by Takeshi Miyazawa, the five-issue mini-series sends Cindy Moon on some new adventures filled with action, drama, and surprising new threats.

By day, Cindy Moon works as an intrepid reporter for the upstart new media empire, Threats & Menaces, under her old boss, J. Jonah Jameson. By night, she’s Silk, crime fighting super hero! But those worlds are about to collide as an investigation into a series of gangland murders puts Silk and everyone she loves in danger. Who is this powerful new player in New York’s underworld, where did she come from, and what is she doing with that strange cat demon? It will take all of Cindy’s prowess as reporter and hero to find the answers…and stay alive!

“The opportunity to write a Korean-American super hero—a woman, no less—is one that I never thought would come my way,” Goo said when the book was announced earlier this year. “I’m so excited to flex this writing muscle and to explore new stories for Silk—a character I love. Her fierceness and loyalty are qualities I understand and relate to, and I hope readers feel the same as she fights new foes and protects old friends.”

Silk #1 features a cover by Stonehouse. It’s set for release in March 2021.
