Original story: 20 years after it started a sea change at Marvel Comics, the iconic Marvel Knights returns later this year. Announced at a retailers-only event at Comic-Con International: San Diego, Donny Cates said he will be "relaunching" Marvel Knights, and  has just renewed his his 'exclusive' deal with the publisher.

"I am showrunning this new thing that we're doing," said Cates.

Cates is picking the contributors himself, beginning with Tini Howard, Matthew Rosenberg, and Vita Ayala. The new Marvel Knights project titled MK20 #1 will feature characters from the original 1998 line-up, and is scheduled to debut in November.
