A new event series from Marvel Comics, The Avengers and the FF are teaming up for Empyre. And if you like variants, you bet there will be some.
It’s a launch party! Maybe. If the current coronavirus panic is sufficiently over by mid-April there will be. And if that’s the case, then Marvel Comics will be ready with a selection of variant covers for Empyre #1.
If you don’t know what that is, it’s a new event series from the publisher, that’ll see the Fantastic Four teaming up with The Avengers (and others) to take on a combined Kree and Skrull threat.
The return of the Celestial Messiah to the Blue Area of the Moon sets off a new chapter in the Kree/Skrull War—only this time, it’s a Kree/Skrull Alliance aimed directly at Earth, and only the Avengers, the Fantastic Four and more of Earth’s heroes stand in their way… When this unparalleled event begins on April 15th, participating comic shops will have an exclusive variant cover by Ed McGuinness and Empyre Launch Party Pins to help show off your allegiance!Marvel Comics
From the writing team of Al Ewing and Dan Slott, and artist Valerio Schiti, Empyre #1 smashes onto the racks on April 15th.
