Award-winning animator Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack, Hotel Transylvania) joins Marvel to bring Luke Cage to life in Cage. He will be joined by inker Stephen DeStefano. Cage will be a four issue mini-series.
Luke Cage will hit the mean streets of New York City where shoes are big, bottoms are belled, and crime is rampant. The smack-talking, chain-wearing, tiara-sporting super hero will take to the streets to deliver some hard-hitting action to the bad guys.
“Growing up with those [Power Man and Iron Fist] comics in the 70’s and 80’s I have a very strong fondness of that version of Power Man so my version is very rooted in that time, but I think it’s totally fun and feels new,” says Tartakovsky, in an interview with Birth.Movies.Death. “It was about making something entertaining with a character that I really liked. So I think it can appeal to young and old readers.”
Here’s a glimpse at what you can expect:
Cage #1 will hit comic book shelves in October!
