Ironheart Vol. 2: Ten Rings
Marvel, 2020



In Ten Rings, Eve Ewing continues the story of Riri Williams, the armored hero called Ironheart, who grew up in Chicago and attends M.I.T. - when she is not saving the world. In Volume 2, Riri goes global, traveling from the Sanctum Santorum to Wakanda, teaming up with notable Marvel characters along the way to investigate the mysterious Ten Rings organization. As one fan raved on Amazon, “Okay, I'm gushing, but Riri is a socially conscious, exceedingly brilliant butt-kicking heroine I've been craving, complete with a crafty, insightful storyline and THAT SUIT!!!"

Read a conversation between Eve Ewing and Evan Narcisse on being a Black comic-book writer and Black superheroes!

“Dr. Strange makes an appearance, and we head over to Wakanda — all welcome developments that make for an excellent ride. The art is clean and the pacing is lively. Plus it's got one of the best pages on the nature of evil in any book anywhere. Highly recommended.”
