Peach Momoko’s Demon Days series blew me away with Demon Days: X-Men and I cannot wait to read the second entry, Demon Days: Mariko this month. Now, Marvel Comics has revealed the third chapter in the series, Demon Days: Cursed Web which will feature new takes on Ghost-Spider, Mystique, and Sabretooth. I love the way that Momoko blends the Marvel characters with Japanese folklore and then the art is just phenomenal.
DEMON DAYS: CURSED WEB will follow Mariko Yashida as she journeys deep into a dark forest to find answers about her past. Instead, she finds a magical wolf with three toes and a strange girl with a pet spider. But there are deadly creatures in these woods too — a mysterious, blue-skinned woman and a giant with super-strength and claws — and they’re after Mariko!
Talking about the series, Momoko said:
It’s been a lot of fun carefully thinking about how to reimagine Marvel characters into my Momoko-verse. Keeping just enough of the character so people can guess who it is but changing it enough to create something very unique. With that in mind, I love getting to come up with ideas and stories around these characters to tell my story. I hope everyone enjoys the Momoko-verse.
Demon Days: Cursed Web #1 will be available to read on September 1.
