Marvel has announced Strange Tale MAX #1 is headed our way in September.Â The 48-page anthology features stories by Paul Pope, Peter Bagge, Molly Crabapple &John Leavitt, Junko Mizuno, Dash Shaw, James Kochalka, Johnny Ryan, Michael Kupperman, Nick Bertozzi, Nicholas Gurewich, Jason and more, and features a plethora of Marvel characters from Spider-Man to the Hulk.
â€œFlat out, this is the apex of human artistic achievement. This is it. The end. The crowning result of tens of millions of years of evolution, right here, in three packed-to-the-gills issues,â€ said Editor John Barber. â€œThe philosophy of the book was to have these creators from â€˜indyâ€™ or â€˜alternativeâ€™ or â€œliteraryâ€ or â€˜artâ€™ comics come in and do what they do best. I think Marvel readers will really dig seeing radically different versions of their favorite characters, and the fans of these cartoonists will get to see the creators work in a milieu they never thought theyâ€™d get to see. Itâ€™s win-win. Itâ€™s really the best of both worlds.â€
Sounds like an interesting series, and with it being part of the MAX line, anything could happen.
