Avengers #1 blasts off in May with Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness on board

Featuring an all-new creative team and all-new direction!

Press Release

Earlier today Marvel revealed they’ll be starting fresh with new creative teams and new ideas starting in May. Call it the reboot after the soft reboot that was Marvel Legacy.

I expect many more creative teams revealed over the coming weeks, but today we got a few pages and news on Avengers. Marvel will have Jason Aaron and Ed McGuiness drafting an Avengers series that’ll kick off with issue #1 April 2nd. Given the pages below it looks like Aaron will be picking up where he left off with Odin and Pheonix in a pre Neanderthal past.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

New York, NY–February 20, 2018–New creative teams. New series. New directions. New beginnings. It all kicks off this May with AVENGERS #1!

“Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises–new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines–all the big stuff that we’ve been building towards since LEGACY began,” says SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “This isn’t a clearing of the slate–while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we’ll be maintaining the classic LEGACY issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well. Oh, and don’t read anything into not seeing a character on the Jim Cheung piece…we can only squeeze so many characters onto there without killing poor Jim!”
