MARVEL #1
Writer: Alex Ross, Kurt Busiek
Artist: Steve Rude, Frank Espinosa
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
Release Date: March 4, 2020

Thirty years ago, Alex Ross had a vision of a new series showing the Marvel heroes in a way they’d never been seen before. The first realization of that idea became the blockbuster MARVELS – but today Alex finally brings about his original vision: An anthology of stories by unique, exceptional talents, many of whom are doing Marvel characters for the very first time. Over this showcase series you’ll see work by such artists as Adam Hughes, Bill Sienkiewicz, Dan Brereton and more, linked together by an overarching story by Alex and Steve Darnall.
This inaugural issue kicks it all off with superstar artists Frank Espinosa (Rocketo, Looney Tunes) telling an unusual Spider-Man story and Steve Rude (Nexus), teaming up with Kurt Busiek (Marvels, Avengers) for an Avengers story, framed by Alex and Steve Darnall (Uncle Sam, Marvels) presenting a tale of the dread dreamland Nightmare, and his threat to the entire Marvel Universe…and possibly beyond.

Wirter/Artist: Ed Piskor
Over six tumultuous decades, the X-Men have carved a singular place in comic book lore and popular culture. Now, New York Times best-selling author Ed Piskor (Hip-Hop Family Tree, Wizzywig) takes you on a pulse-pounding tour of X-Men history unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before – an intricate labor of love that stitches together hundreds of classic and obscure stories into one seamless X-Men masterpiece! All three of Piskor’s GRAND DESIGN series are collected in a single volume for the first time – taking you from Professor X’s formation of the original team, through the Second Genesis of the All-New, All-Diff erent X-Men and the devastating Dark Phoenix Saga, to the 1980s epics like Inferno that pushed mutantkind to the brink of X-tinction!
