A few days ago Marvel announced Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur that lit #ComicTwitter timeline’s ablaze. The reason? A beautiful, black girl rocking glasses and natural hair!
And unlike the Blade series that was announced during SDCC, it features a creator of color on the series!
Meet Natacha Bustos, a beautiful Afro-Brazilian and Spanish woman of color!
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is written by Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare, with Natacha on the art. Here’s the full Marvel solicit.
Meet Lunella Lafayette, pre-teen super genius who just wants to change the world and help those in need. Possessing latent Inhuman DNA, Lunella’s unsure of what her strange future might hold. But when she stumbles on ancient Kree technology, things are about to get a whole lot stranger.
Opening a doorway to the prehistoric past, her life is turned upside down as she comes face-to-face with a towering Jurassic giant known only as DEVIL DINOSAUR! But he is not alone. Out of the portal and in to the Marvel Universe emerge the Killer-Folk – an ancient tribe of beings who will stop at nothing to acquire the alien technology!
Lunella is described as “a little genius with grand plans on going to big schools, but she’s got an Inhuman gene, unpredictable alien DNA inside that – once triggered – could take her life in a wildly different direction. She’s determined to control that change. She’s going to need to grow up really fast to survive in the new Marvel Universe…luckily she will have Devil Dinosaur at her side.”
Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur will be available in November!
