Just when you thought you knew the Marvel Universe, Demon Days: X-Men is set to make you rethink everything. It’s the beginning of a whole new Marvel universe from Stormbreaker artist Peach Momoko!
Momoko has already made her mark on the entire comics industry with her absolutely stunning variant covers. However, her spotlight as one of the Marvel Stormbreakers brought an opportunity to put a spin on the Marvel Universe and beloved characters like Wolverine, Venom and Psylocke all her own.
This “Momoko-verse” kicks off in March with Demon Days: X-Men. According to the press release announcing it, the one-shot is a tale of mythic heroes and demons that kicks off “when a wandering swordswoman with a psychic blade arrives at a 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.”
