Luke Cage: City of Fire is a new three-issue miniseries that doubles as celebrated creator Ho Che Anderson’s first foray into the Marvel Universe.
Ho Che Anderson (King: A Comics Biography of Martin Luther King, Jr.; Scream Queen) will make his Marvel debut in Luke Cage: City of Fire this October.
The Luke Cage three-issue limited series will feature a rotating art team consisting of Farid Karami on Issue #1, Ray-Anthony Height on Issue #2 and Sean Damien Hill on Issue #3. Marvel promises that City of Fire redefines Luke Cage’s role within the larger Marvel Universe.
“I can’t express how excited I am to be doing a project with Marvel, and about the level of talent they’ve lined up to work on it with me,” said Anderson. “I have been given the freedom to explore a subject I’m so passionate about through the lens of characters I’ve loved since I was a kid, and I fully intend to work overtime to make sure the results are worthy of the trust I’ve been granted. Fortunately, the heavy lifting will be accomplished by my incredible collaborators who’ll make me look better than I am!”

Cage quickly crosses paths with Daredevil, who is determined to bring down the Regulators no matter the cost, but Mayor Fisk is equally determined to use them to tighten his grip on the city. There is unrest in the streets, and it’s up to Cage to keep the city from going up in flames.
