Now in its second year, the hit series will feature Indigenous writers and artists, including talent who contributed to the first MARVEL’S VOICES: INDIGENOUS VOICES title last year as well as many rising stars making their Marvel Comics debut! These creators will come together on four thrilling stories that dive into the past, present, and future of the Marvel Universe and star some of Marvel’s most iconic Indigenous Super Heroes.

New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Roanhorse and acclaimed Navajo artist Shaun Beyale will further reveal the fascinating story behind River, the mysterious stranger from the pages of Rebecca Roanhorse’s new PHOENIX SONG: ECHO series! Discover Snowguard’s greatest hopes and fears in a tale by celebrated filmmaker Nyla Innuksuk and artist Natasha Donovan!  And writer Steven Paul Judd and artist David Cutler explore the legacy of Jason Strongbow, AKA American Eagle, in a poignant tale about this classic Navajo Super Hero.

"I am thrilled to be back for a new MARVEL'S VOICES issue," says Roanhorse, "and to give readers a peak at River, a new and very complicated character who plays an important role in the new PHOENIX SONG: ECHO series. Is he a hero or a villain? Check out PHOENIX SONG: ECHO to find out."

"Telling a story in this shorter format turned out to be more challenging and more enjoyable than I expected it to be," Innuksuk notes. "I had a lot of fun returning to the character of Snowguard and the community of Pang. I look forward to traveling back to the magical community in real life soon."

"I respond to characters who go overlooked by, and/or exist on the fringes of, society," explains Steven Paul Judd. "Telling the story of an aging Super Hero who's past his prime and challenged to find out if he still has any gas left in the tank felt like a fun opportunity to explore more realistic (and funny) facets of these types of characters who often appear ageless."

"Not Dead Yet," starring American Eagle
