A New Hero Rises Out of Daytime TV
Guiding Light Comes to Comics!
Marvel.com is proud to give a glimpse of a soap show that will have you daydreaming of super heroics during daytime TV. In this preview unlike any other you've seen before it, a new twist from the flickering images of the ultra-popular Guiding Light will turn up in the pages of Marvel comic books. Check out this preview of the episode that will give rise to a new hero that will find herself in the pages of Marvel Comics!
In the first-ever comic-soap crossover, Marvel's mightiest heroes (and villains) meet some of daytime drama's steamiest characters. The debut and origin of Springfield's first costumed crime-fighter will be told on air on the November 1st episode of Guiding Light. As an added
bonus, the episode will feature many "Easter eggs" for sharp-eyed Marvel fans, so be on the lookout! Appearing in comics as an 8-page back-up beginning 10/26 and written by soap-and-comic scribe Jim McCann, the Avengers and their deadly foes descend on Guiding Light's city of Springfield to determine if a new super-powered being is friend or foe!
This crossover represents a unique partnership between Marvel, and Procter & Gamble Productions, Inc (PGP), the producers of Guiding Light. As fans will recall, Storm's wedding dress, featured in her wedding to T'Challa in Black Panther #18, was designed by Guiding Light costume designer Shawn Dudley. Both Marvel and PGP are thrilled about this opportunity for audience cross-pollination, especially Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "This is just one more way that we're trying to reach out beyond our usual audience in an effort to expose those who don't know anything about the greatness of comics and hopefully come back with a few new converts," he says. "And hopefully some of our fans will find themselves with a new habit as well--Guiding Light!"
Be sure to tune in on November 1st to see Guiding Light on CBS Daytime!
