Marvel Announces Exclusive Agreement With Writer Donny Cates, Takes on Doctor Strange

Marvel Entertainment has announce that writer Donny Cates, who has brought his talent to comic powerhouses such as Image (God Country, Redneck), IDW (Star Trek), and Dark Horse (The Paybacks, Ghost Fleet, Buzzkill), will now bring his explosive storytelling to Marvel in an exclusive agreement.

Marvel has also revealed that Cates, along with artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta, will be the new creative team on Doctor Strange taking over the title in November. And with this new team comes a new Sorcerer Supreme- Loki, the Norse god of Mischief!

In the release Cates said:

There’s a new sheriff in town…and he’s not really the trustworthy type. That’s right, kids…Loki has taken the mantle of Sorcerer Supreme from our good Doctor! What does that mean for Stephen? And what lengths will Strange go to see his title and his home returned to him? I’ll say this….you can guess all you like, but there is absolutely no way anyone will see the answers to these questions coming. As a dedicated Marvel fan myself, I can confidently say the events of this arc are some of the most shocking things in Marvel comics to date. I’m so excited to see what everyone thinks!

Exclusively at Marvel, Cates is prepared to bring his powerhouse ideas and sharp approach to the heroic, well-known characters of the Marvel Universe.
