Black History Month May Bring More African-American Writers To Marvel Than Ever Before – Including Darryl McDaniels On Guardians Of Infinity

He kept that nice and quiet at the weekend.

Even though he performed with his we-now-understand-to-be-fellow Marvel comic creators Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Kate Leth and Marguerite Bennett, Darryl McDaniels didn't let slip that as well as writing the comic book DMC, he is writing a new Guardians Of The Galaxy story in the Guardians Of Infinity #3 comic.

And those are just the ones we know about.
