NEWS | Chris Claremont and John Bolton’s Marada the She-Wolf to be reissued as a hardcover by Titan Books
Published on Tuesday, June 18, 2013 by
Sword-and-sorcery serial that originally appeared in Marvel’s Epic Illustrated anthology finds a new home with British magazine and comics publisher.

Chris Claremont and John Bolton’s Marada the She-Wolf, a character that first appeared in Marvel’s Epic Illustrated #10 (cover-dated February 1982) is set to make her return to comics after an almost 30-year absence as publisher Titan Books recently announced the upcoming release of a Marada the She-Wolf hardcover collecting previously published Marada the She-Wolf material.

The character of Marada has an interesting development history, given that the stories she first appeared in were originally intended to feature Red Sonja. As noted on The Appendix to the Handbook of the Marvel Universe

Marada’s first story was initially intended to feature Red Sonja, but copyright complications at the time resulted in the story and character being totally redesigned into Marada. Further, it was intended to feature in Bizarre Adventures (the black and white magazine that had evolved out of Marvel Preview). The delay due to the copyright brought about a shelving of the material for use in Bizarre Adventures for many months. Reluctant to let their work—with which they were quite pleased—languish in inventory, Claremont pitched it to Archie Goodwin and Jim Shooter, the editors of Epic Illustrated (with the latter being Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief at the time), and they got a spot for it split between two issues…plus they got to make it their own property (which was the nature of Epic material).

The new hardcover will comprise the stories “The Shattered Sword,” “Royal Hunt,” and “Wizard’s Masque” and is set to go on sale on November 12, 2013. (h/t to Bleeding Cool)
