Marvel will be ending 2012 with a bang -- and the release of Marvel NOW!'s new AVENGERS series by Jonathan Hickman, Jerome Opena and Dean White. We didn't know a whole lot about the new series save for the creators working on the books, until now.
Earlier today Marvel revealed covers to the series' first three issues featuring the awesome art of Dustin Weaver. Marvel's "big three" (Captain America, Iron-Man and Thor) are featured front and center on each cover, respectively, and are surrounded by a cast of characters that are sure to appear in the upcoming title. If you've been looking forward to seeing these three working together alongside the likes of Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Wolverine, Hulk and many more, then this is definitely a title you will want to pick up.
According to Marvel editor Tom Brevoort, the upcoming team will feature a roster of up to 18 different characters. Now, Hickman has had plenty of experience writing a lot of characters in one book (take FANTASTIC FOUR and FF, for example), but that's definitely a lot, even for someone as talented as he is. It will be interesting to see him give each character enough panel time. What do you think of the interlocking covers to the first three issues of the upcoming series? Are you looking forward to the book, due to hit comic shops December?
