America Chavez, the dimension-shattering hero is starring in her own mini-series debuting today from Marvel Comics. Written by Kalinda Vasquez and illustrated by Carlos Gómez, America Chavez: Made in the USA explores the young hero’s backstory including some startling revelations about her origins. Dark secrets from her past will force America to face the parts of herself she’s been running from as she sets out on a new mission against a dangerous new enemy. Check out a trailer for the new book below.
“When crafting this story, it was fun to further build out America’s backstory, using what we already know about her and going beyond that, too. And as in my TV work, there were some great moments of collaboration. In the early stages of this book I had the opportunity to dig deep on America with editor Annalise Bissa and other members of the creative team at Marvel and their insights were invaluable,” Vazquez told Marvel.com in a recent interview.
“I’m so hyped for this new series!” Gómez said. “Her style and her powers make her an awesome character… There is so much you can do with her, it’s insane. I couldn’t be happier to jump on this ship. So be ready for a new origin story with a ton of unexpected twists!”
