Two More Off The Marvel MIA List – Widowmakers and Taskmaster

Marvel Comics has confirmed that Widowmakers: Red Guardian And Yelena Belova #1 and Taskmaster #1 launch comic books, previously solicited to be published before the shutdown happened (and when the Black Widow movie was scheduled early in the year) have been rescheduled to be published in November, alongside the planned release of the movie.

Writer Devin Grayson, one of the creators of Yelena Belova — the Red Room recruit who once nearly killed Natasha Romanoff — returns with a brand–new story drawn by rising star Michele Bandini in WIDOWMAKERS: RED GUARDIAN AND YELENA BELOVA. Yelena has spent years trying to figure out who she is. Once she thought the Black Widow mantle was her destiny, but fate had other plans. Now the past is catching up with her — and with Alexi Shostakov, a.k.a. the Red Guardian! Alexi has worn many titles, including husband to Natasha, but while the Widow played her avenging games, the Red Guardian waited in the shadows. Now a new day is dawning — and this time, no one will stand in his way.

Meanwhile, the world believes Taskmaster murdered Maria Hill! Now the greatest spies in the Marvel Universe are on the hunt and won't stop until Taskmaster is dead. Follow writer Jed Mackay (Black Cat) and artist Alessandro Vitti (Secret Warriors) in TASKMASTER, a globe–spanning adventure that will send ripples through every corner of Marvel's espionage community and beyond!
