“That and the fact that he's a first-class super hero artist, who made ‘Captain America,' ‘Astonishing X-Men' and ‘Planetary' look incredibly beautiful,” Brevoort said. “And John is a phenomenal storyteller — everything he does as an artist is in the service of dramatizing the tale being told.”
Brevoort said “Uncanny Avengers” is just the beginning of what fans can expect from “Marvel NOW!,” which is rolling out over the next several months with new launches.
“Marvel NOW! represents a coordinated starting point for virtually all of the classic series within the Marvel line, as new creative teams take the helm of each of these titles and send them off in new interesting directions,” Brevoort said. “So while there are the same characters you remember reading about from weeks or months or years gone by, this is also the perfect place to jump on board again — as our storytellers are beginning to tell new stories featuring these characters.”
“Uncanny Avengers” will be followed by “Marvel NOW! Point One” on Oct. 17. The “Point One” book will feature previews of some upcoming Marvel NOW! titles.
