City of Fire One Month Before Launch

Luke Cage: City of Fire writer Ho Che Anderson says the Marvel Comics limited series has been canceled — just one month before launch.

Marvel Comics has evidently canceled its upcoming three-part limited series Luke Cage: City of Fire by writer Ho Che Anderson — one month before it was set to launch.

Anderson himself confirmed the cancellation in a post to Instagram. “Man plans, God laughs,” he wrote. “No easy way to say this. I got the word Luke Cage got canceled this morning, one month away from its premiere. The scripts are all written. The first issue is done and is a thing of absolute beauty. Issues #2 and #3 are deep into production. Covers have been drawn. People have gotten excited, and with good reason as far as I’m concerned.”

The writer continued, “I remain as proud of this as any work I’ve ever done. Maybe someday it will be seen. But as of today this comic is dead in the water. If you want answers I am not the man to ask. My heart is broken. I’m taking a social media break to lick my wounds. Somewhere God is having a chuckle. Enjoy it.”

Luke Cage: City of Fire was first announced back in July. Written by Anderson and illustrated by Farid Karami, the limited series’ first issue was finally scheduled to hit comic shops on Wednesday, Dec. 29 — with a final order cutoff date of Nov. 15 — having been pushed back from its initial release window of October. Ray-Anthony Height and Sean Damien Hill were tapped to illustrate issues #2 and #3, respectively.

“When a Black man is murdered by a police officer in New York City, Luke Cage is called to action,” City of Fire #1’s official synopsis reads. “But what does a good man do when protecting the streets puts him at odds with his own people? A cadre of crooked cops named the Regulators are out to terrorize ordinary citizens, and with Daredevil determined to bring them down no matter the cost and Mayor Fisk equally determined to use them to tighten his grip on the city, it’s up to Cage to keep the city from completely going up in flames. Joined by an exciting lineup of artists (Farid Karami on #1, Ray-Anthony Height on #2 and Sean Damien Hill on #3), celebrated creator Ho Che Anderson (King: A Comics Biography of Martin Luther King, Jr.; Scream Queen) makes his Marvel debut with an ambitious, hard-hitting story unlike any you’ve seen in the 616. Change is coming — and it starts here.”

Marvel has yet to provide an official reason for City of Fire‘s abrupt cancellation — the first cancellation of its kind since the height of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
