Apparently, Marvel is giving its assistant editors a chance to shine in April with the Marvel Assistant-Sized Spectacular #1.  It’s not just a single issue, as the fun(?), action (?), adventure (?), heck whatever their planning, spills into a second issue also released in April.

You can check out the covers directly from Marvel, after the jump.

    Yeah, the $3.99 price tag pretty much guarantees that I won’t be picking it up.

    I’m old enough to remember the original assistant editor’s month from back in the eighties. I’ll definitely be looking out for this one.

    Yeah, I still own the Assistant Editors Month issue of the Avengers where they appear on “Late Night with David Letterman” – god almighty, that piece of shit couldn’t provide a single unit of pleasure if I folded all its pages into oragami swans. Hell, I have almost all the issues published that month, and all I remember was dreck. John Byrne appearing in Fantastic Four to testify in the “Trial of Reed Richards” Gag me with a copy of Teen Titans any day. :)

    I’m vaguely interested to see Ella Bloodstone. At least I think it’s Ella Bloodstone. Perhaps someone will try to use Nextwave.
