Jonathan Hickman’s career thus far has been MORE than stellar! His work on books for Marvel Comics such as Secret Warriors (my personal fav), S.H.I.E.L.D. (one of the most creative titles I’ve read in years), Fantastic Four, FF, The Ultimates, and now The Avengers has distinguished him as one of the best writers in comics today. With the EPIC event, Avengers vs X-Men (which Hickman helped ’round robin’) drawing to an end soon and Marvel Now! just around the corner, we will be seeing some major changes in the status qou across the Marvel Universe. It would seem that we are also in for some MAJOR roster changes for all of our favorite teams, some X-Men and Avengers crisscrossing, but of course The Avengers will keep most of its heavy hitters and ‘movie staples’ while adding on some surprises! That’s Cannonball and Sunspot! It is awesome to see the green Hulk back again, and that the team is adapting some of Bendis’ original New Avengers (my favorite Avengers book ever), with Wolverine, Spidey, and Spider-Woman thrown in there! Here’s a little blurb about the new ongoing series and the special covers:
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at the jaw dropping covers to AVENGERS #1, AVENGERS #2 and AVENGERS #3 by artist Dustin Weaver! This December, the most popular heroes in comics together on one unbeatable team, only in AVENGERS #1! From the creative team of Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena, the Avengers “go large,” expanding their roster and their sphere of influence to a global and even interplanetary level. When Captain America puts out his call, who will answer? Big threats, big ideas, big idealism – these are the Avengers NOW! This December, Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena redefine what it means to be Earth’s Mightiest in AVENGERS #1!
The Avengers #1 hits shops on December 5th!!
Stay tooned 😛
