Marvel Comics just put out a promo for Marvel's Voices: Legacy #1, out tomorrow. This is the second Marvel's Voices: Legacy #1 – ignore the issue number, that's just how they do it, that celebrates black comic book characters and creators at Marvel Comics. But when Marvel PR sent out the trailer for the comic to the press, they referred to it as Marvel's Voices Identity #1 by mistake. The previous Marvel's Voices Identity comic book celebrates Asian superheroes and creators. But Bleeding Cool gets the word that Marvel Comics will be publishing a new Marvel's Voices Identity #1 in May 2022, and that will be teased in tomorrow's Legacy #1 – which may be where the confusion arose. Though I presume Greg Smallwood won't be involved in this one.
UPDATE: Marvel just gave us a Rich Twitch…
