Marvel Announces “The Marvels” Series Coming This May

The Press Release:
“Anyone. Anywhere. Anytime.” That’s how acclaimed writer Kurt Busiek describes his new ongoing series, THE MARVELS. Alongside artists Yildiray Cinar and Alex Ross, MARVELS will be the most sprawling series ever to hit the Marvel Universe where any characters can show up for adventures that can and will take them anywhere! With the entire Marvel Universe at its disposal, this expansive series will feature everyone from the Marvel Universe’s first heroes to its latest superstars.

“The Marvels” #1

“The whole idea of THE MARVELS is to be able to use the whole Marvel Universe — not just all the characters in it, but all the history of it. The sweeping scope of the whole thing,” Busiek said in an interview with marvel.com. “Big stuff can happen in the Marvel Universe, but we usually see it confined largely to the Avengers in AVENGERS, to the FF in FANTASTIC FOUR, and so on. THE MARVELS is intended as a freewheeling book that can go anywhere, do anything, use anyone. It’s a smorgasbord of Marvel heroes and history. It’s not a team. It’s a concept, or a universe, depending on how you look at it. THE MARVELS features the marvels — all the many and varied characters of the Marvel Universe. The heroes, the villains, the oddities — all of it. There’ll be popular characters of today, there’ll be obscure characters from long ago — heck, there’ll be story threads that take place in the past, or possibly the future. We’re not limited to just the present. And there’ll be new characters, too, from the street-level to the cosmic. There are three new marvels in the first issue, although a couple of them are only seen for a panel or so. But we’ll get back to them. I’d say “the sky’s the limit,” except in the Marvel Universe, there’s a lot going on beyond that sky. And it’s all open to us.”

Just a short time ago, I received this brand-new teaser about an upcoming series which is being lauded as quite ambitious and coming from the creative team of Kurt Busiek, Alex Ross and Yildiray Cinar. Take a look at the cool graphic and all the heroes that will be involved.
