With Marvel’s recent announcement about a host of brand-new title launches and their sharing not only the cover art but several preview pages, I’m going to help rally the charge by giving each of them a posting. Here’s the scoop on the just announced “Avengers” title.
The Press Release:
New creative teams. New series. New directions. New beginnings. It all kicks off this May with AVENGERS #1!
“Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises-new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines-all the big stuff that we’ve been building towards since LEGACY began,” says SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “This isn’t a clearing of the slate-while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we’ll be maintaining the classic LEGACY issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well. Oh, and don’t read anything into not seeing a character on the Jim Cheung piece…we can only squeeze so many characters onto there without killing poor Jim!”
