SDCC: Donny Cates to Spearhead 'Marvel Knights' Relaunch!

Not only has the writer re-upped his exclusive Marvel contract, but he'll be at the helm in reviving the twenty-year-old comic label.

Donny Cates is certainly a busy man. He's juggling writing Venom ongoing, Cosmic Ghost-Rider mini, Thanos, killing off the Inhumans, and now will be the mind behind the relaunched Marvel Knights label. Starting in November with a one-shot called MK20 #1 (having flashbacks to Mortal Kombat with them calling it like this) and art will be done by Mike Deodato Jr. The one-shot will feature characters that featured in the original line-up (so expect stories of Daredevil, Black Panther, the Punisher, and the Inhumans. Wait I thought they're dead? So double dead then? I wonder if Black Widow will replace it since she got an MK mini too?).

It was also revealed that he will personally choose the creative teams for the comics with so far Tini Howard, Matthew Rosenberg, and Vita Ayala being named for various projects. Oh, Cates has also upped his exclusive contract with Marvel as well. This was all revealed during the Diamond Retailer Appreciation Lunch at SDCC.
