Creed enters the comic ring in June 2023
BOOM! Studio has announced an upcoming four-issue limited comic book series based on the Creed franchise.
Creed III’s director, producer and star Michael B. Jordan serves as the creative director on the new story. He joins superstar co-writers LaToya Morgan and Jai Jamison, highly acclaimed artist Wilton Santos, colorist DJ Chavis, and executive producer Elizabeth Raposo, associate producer Christina Raquel of Outlier Society and Chartoff-Winkler to bring the future legacy of the legendary boxer to life within the pages of a comic book for the very first time in June 2023. The announcement comes following the record-breaking theatrical release of MGM’s Creed III.
The Creed comic book series begins ten years after the events of Creed III. Adonis Creed is out of the ring but not out of the game as he trains – along with his manager-wife Bianca – the next champion—his daughter Amara, now an amateur boxer. But with Adonis and Bianca reluctant to pit their daughter against more dangerous opponents, Amara feels like her career is at a standstill, and she’s hungry for more. Amara will have to find another trainer. Someone who’s not afraid of defying Adonis but still knows how to teach her to fight like a Creed. Who’s up for the challenge of training a young boxer to become the next champion fighter?
The first issue features cover art by highly acclaimed artists Mateus Manhanini, Valentine de Landro, Paris Alleyne, and more.
Print copies of the first issue will be available for sale in June 2023 exclusively at comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest comic book shop) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Kindle.
