Marvel NOW! – AVENGERS #1 First Look!
Key kiddies, this here is a sneak peek at the upcoming Avengers #1, written by JONATHAN HICKMAN, with art by JEROME OPENA and colors by DEAN WHITE. The cover is by a fella that I’ve personally never heard of: Dustin Weaver, but for some reason, Marvel seems to be making a big deal out if it. I keep seeing COVER BY DUSTIN WEAVER! All over the place, but frankly, I like Opena a great deal more and would rather see him do the cover.
I like Hickman’s superhero work and I’m looking forward to see what he’s going to do here, and hell, the art team is the same that started up the Uncanny X-force run that I love so much, so I’m actually pretty stoked for this. It should be hitting shelves on 12/5/2012.
Here are some of the interesting bits from the press release:
- Now shipping twice a month, the Avengers “go large,” expanding their roster and their sphere of influence to a global and even interplanetary level.
- Each issue of Avengers includes a code for a free digital copy on the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices). Additionally, each issue of Avengers features special augmented reality content available exclusive through the Marvel AR app – including cover recaps, behind the scenes features and more that add value to your reading experience at no additional cost.
