The “Fresh Start” era is coming, and that means there’s an all new Avengers lineup on the way as well. It’s going to be a big shift back to the iconic heroes that you know and love. So you best believe Marvel Comics is going to celebrate big time.
If you’re a longtime Marvel fan, it’s tough to not love this lineup. Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man headline a team that also includes some heroes that perfectly fit the “Avenger” mould. That group includes She-Hulk, Captain Marvel, and Black Panther. Not that all of them are a perfect fit (to me anyway), since Doctor Strange and Robbie Reyes’ Ghost Rider are there too.
Still, this is the first time in a while that I was actually excited to pick up an Avengers book. And if the enthusiasm that’s apparent online is any indication, this could be a book to get pumped for. Not to mention, add to your pull list.
To celebrate that newfound reinvigoration of the brand (when it comes to comics), Marvel will be promoting a series of lithographs. These illustrations will come from the talented hand of Pepe Larraz, and include what looks to be a series of spotlight shots. The one that Marvel sent to us is of Thor and the Panther, and they look pretty freaking awesome.
Now updated with new covers
Look for the lithos to land this May, right along with all the Avengers #1 hoopla.
