Christopher Cantwell’s recent run of Iron Man set the character of Hellcat on an exciting new path and now, the Eisner-nominated writer will continue his transformative take on Patsy Walker in an all-new solo series! Kicking off in March, Hellcat will be a five-issue saga written by Cantwell and drawn by Alex Lins, known for his work on New Mutants and Moon Knight: Black, White & Blood. The events of Iron Man saw Patsy confront the darkest moments of her past and now she’s ready to step up as one of Marvel’s A-List super heroes! Hellcat’s upcoming saga will embrace the character’s rich and unique comic book history including her fascinating ties to the supernatural and her infamous relationship with Daimon Hellstrom. Framed for murder, Hellcat finds herself investigating an action-packed mystery where she’ll cross paths with the fan-favorite character Sleepwalker!

Patsy is back on the West Coast, living in a house haunted by the ghost of her mother! When someone close to Patsy’s inner circle is murdered, Hellcat becomes the prime suspect! Now Patsy must prove her innocence and evade both the police and the supernatural threat of the Sleepwalkers. To add to the perils she faces, her demonic ex Daimon Hellstrom shows up and that’s never a good thing. 

See Patsy Walker suit up and go on the prowl for the biggest adventure in her super hero career when Hellcat #1 arrives in March featuring a cover by Pere Pérez!

Rodney Barnes and Alex Lins team for Monarch in February 2023

Eisner Award nominated Killadelphia writer Rodney Barnes has revealed that the next title in his comic book canon, Monarch, will be with artist Alex Lins and out from Image Comics in February 2023.

Growing up in the city of Compton is tough enough as it is… but as Travon has learned all too well, growing up as an orphan in the city of Compton with gang members hunting you down every day is even tougher. But all of that is about to change because today is the day that aliens make first contact with Earth…and it only spells doom for life as we know it!

Death, devastation, and mayhem… Can a single teenage boy rise to the challenge to protect his surrogate family & friends…or will he die trying?

Monarch #1 will launch a new tale of love, triumph, disaster, and defeat and will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, February 8:

  • Monarch #1 Cover A by Lins – Diamond Code DEC220126
