Marvel has released a sneak peek of Age of Apocalypse #1 by Dave Lapham and Roberto De La Torre, that you can check out, after the jump.

“This new Age of Apocalypse book does the impossible – it revolutionizes an old concept without a reboot,” explains Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “If you’ve been reading Uncanny X-Force, you know where this is coming from and you’re already in. If you’re an Age of Apocalypse junkie, this builds on the alternate universe’s mythology is fascinating and troubling ways. And if you aren’t either and just want a ground-breaking, easy-entry book that will challenge everything you know about the X-Men, there hasn’t been a better jumping on point.”

Written by DAVE LAPHAM
Spinning out of the critically acclaimed Uncanny X-Force, the Amazing X-Men and the human resistance must fight tooth and nail to end the tyranny that has left their world ravaged! Continuing Apocalypse’s war on humanity, Weapon X leads the genocide that rains down upon this dimension, eliminating any who stand in his way.

Age of Apocalypse #1 arrives in stores March 07, 2012.

    I think that regardless of what you think of any given storyline, most of us can agree that new installments adding to it rarely make it better.

      I don’t know about that. I think the Exiles added a lot to the Age of Apocalypse universe and gave a lot of depth to some of the characters from it.
