Marvel's Voices kicked off in 2018, but that was just the first in an ongoing anthology to celebrate new talent and highlight representation in comics, and the newest addition to the line is Marvel's Voices: Indigenous Voices #1. The issue will feature an array of renowned Indigenous writers and artists, including Jeffrey Veregge, and all of them will be bringing Marvel's library of Indigenous characters to the forefront. That will include Echo, and that's why Marvel got co-creator David Mack to create a gorgeous variant cover for the issue. You can get your exclusive first look at the new cover in the image below.
"C.B. [Cebulski] and I started talking about various Native projects a year ago when discussing my 'Of God's & Heroes' Marvel art exhibit at the Smithsonian. I am truly grateful for the platform that Marvel has not only provided for me and my work, but with this edition of Marvel Voices, all of Native America," Veregge told Marvel.com. "This is an opportunity to share the cultural influences that we as Native artists and writers grew up with that will add more depth and dimension to the Native Heroes in the Marvel Universe."
“Marvel’s Voices started in 2018, which grew and evolved from a popular Marvel podcast into a larger program within our comics,” said Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski. “MARVEL'S VOICES #1, our first anthology in this program, was released this past February, and the reception from fans was incredible. It was clear we needed to do more to lift up more voices and talent and increase representation in and behind our stories. This book is the first step of our next expansion of the program to not only elevate the diverse talent we already have at Marvel, but also discover new writers and artist who can bring their voices to our characters, both old and new. And this is only the beginning."
