Well here comes another event complete with cross-overs. Man can Marvel go 5 min without an event or cross over.i guess thats what sells these days..

Amazing art !

Edited by stevencarver_

I'm actually really excited about this event. Hickman is one of the most interesting writers I've ever read.

Edited by deathmedal

great, more tracing over 3-d models and sketchup

Is that Hercules?

Posted by Hassun

As long as Black Bolt continues his ass kicking space Jesus antics I will read it.

Posted by Raw_Material

So what titles are going to be in this crossover?

Posted by nappystr8

This is my favorite comic right now overall, and as far as I'm concerned it is the only book in the endless sea of currently running Avengers titles that's even worth the money. I'm very anxious that an infinity tie in might end up ruining this series. Here's to hoping it doesn't.

Mike Deodato never disappoints (well, almost never ;))

Still not excited about Infinity but so far NA has been great.

pretty pictures , but it doesn't change the fact that the current avengers and new avengers series suck. also marvel is going to have to work their asses of for me to like their events, and we all know they won't do that.

Aww...the Avengers have a team pet.

Does anyone know when this comes out? I looked on the Marvel release calendar but couldn't find it.

Edited by mtrakos

Anything Inhumans I'm buying.

Edited by Kerrigan

Haven't all Hickman's Avengers books been a prelude to Infinity? It's the major thing that's made them kind of boring.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Meh, looks nice but I'm not really on the edge of my seat with this, not after the absolute disappointment AU was.

Posted by GraniteSoldier

Age of Ultron was my first event in awhile, and it might be awhile before I do another. It was just not as engaging as I'd hoped and too drawn out. Wasn't terrible, but too much mediocrity for me to pay for it. Unfortunately it's jaded me to not going for this.

Posted by GrumpyBear74

@smurfboy: Agreed, that art is fantastic, both Stark and Reed look awesome. I love the Iron Man armor look here.

Black Bolt is best Bolt

Edited by DEGRAAF

whos the dude with Black Bolt in the over coat in black and white? Is that the Beyonder?

Posted by Yung ANcient One

The artwork looks good and I'm making the guess that this will be an actual good event as in it won't be a disappointment and people who aren't interested will not be annoyed by this.

@degraaf: I suspect he may be his father. It would explain a few things.

An what Im actually liking New Avengers I will admit it is slow at times but for the most part I like it. I dont see why people dont like it. Why dont you like it honestly?

because they are no longer heroes, the act like gods that pass judgement on others

Idk I can kinda see your point but then again they do show humanity like before BP blew up the planet if you read that issue.

@windcaster: You think who is who's father? You think Black Bolt is the Beyonders father? I thought the Beyonder was created from a Cosmic Cube that had been used by various people to come up with his personality?
