The Honeymoon Is on Hold in 'King in Black: Wiccan and Hulkling' #1, Coming in March 2021

Tini Howard and Luciano Vecchio team up to put Marvel's newest married couple in the middle of 'King in Black'!

At the end of EMPYRE, Marvel's recent intergalactic comic event, Hulkling and Wiccan revealed that they got married, solidifying their love and forging ahead as a super power couple. But as much as Marvel fans want to see the Young Avengers live happily ever after, they're going to have to take a rain check -- KING IN BLACK is afoot, and Hulkling and Wiccan are about to find themselves in the middle of a symbiote takeover!

KING IN BLACK: WICCAN AND HULKLING #1, written by Tini Howard with art by Luciano Vecchio, arrives in March!

King in Black: Wiccan and Hulkling
KING IN BLACK: WICCAN AND HULKLING (2021) #1 Cover by Jim Cheung had quotes from the creative team.

Tini Howard: "It's amazing to see where these characters are now. When YOUNG AVENGERS first came out in 2005, I was a newly-minted Marvel superfan buying every Avengers book I could get my hands on. Wiccan was that new character I immediately imprinted upon - I've been a Billy Kaplan superfan since his very first appearance (back when he was still called Asgardian!) - so writing his honeymoon special with Hulkling feels very special indeed."

Luciano Vecchio: "I'm blown away by this assignment, talk about bucket list project. It is no secret Wiccan and Hulkling are my favorite characters in the Marvel Universe, and I'm super happy and fulfilled to be working on this adventure picking up after a very important year for them in the EMPYRE event. I love drawing Billy and Teddy, and also the fact that it ties in with KING IN BLACK allows me to explore my dark and creepy side which I really enjoy too. And I get to work with Tini Howard! I'm living a dream honestly, and I'm very grateful for the opportunity."

Wiccan and Hulkling are freshly off the marriage altar and overdue for a proper celebration. So when the Shi'ar invite them for an all-expenses paid vacation at their glitziest beach resort, you know Wiccan's already got their bags packed. But they'll have to hold the champagne — because Knull and his symbiote army are expanding across the galaxy! Tini Howard and Luciano Vecchio give everyone's favorite Young Avengers a honeymoon to die for!
