Superstar Mike Deodato Jr. is the first guest of honor at the event. The Brazilian artist, well known for his work on The Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America, The Mighty Thor, Wolverine, X-Men, The Avengers, and Batman, will be making a rare U.S. appearance.
With the revelation made at the end of Secret Invasion #8, the status quo is changing across the entire Marvel Universe.Â BRING ON THE BAD GUYS!Â Marvel has released several variant covers that feature the big bads striking poses and looking menacing.
BOOM!Â I love this image.Â It’s a perfect combination of dramatic pose, lighting, and the suspense of wanting to know what this promo is all about.Â My guess it has something to do with some of that art we saw a year or so ago featuring Iron Man in a Captain America inspired suit.
We’ll find out when Marvel sends more info, but until then, enjoy the image directly from the Mike Deodato, Jr.
