Marvel.com has debuted the first interior art from the upcoming “Civil War II” #1. The two pages of uncolored art from series artist David Marquez depicts the All-New, All-Different Avengers rallying and then leaping into battle alongside dozens of heroes — including members of the other Avengers teams, the Inhumans and X-Men.
“David Marquez and [colorist] Justin Ponsor are poised to plus up the work they recently did with [writer] Brian [Michael Bendis] on ‘Invincible Iron Man’ — and if you saw what they did on that series, you have an inkling of the kind of game they’ll be bringing to bear on ‘Civil War II,'” said series editor Tom Brevoort. “As you can imagine, there’ll be a ton more characters in this project than there was in ‘Invincible Iron Man,’ as can be seen on these pages from the first issue. This is just the tip of the iceberg.”
The events of “Civil War II” remain shrouded in mystery. “Civil War II” #0 will arrive in May from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Olivier Coipel; the cover for that issue has been revealed. It’s also known that the death of a major superhero will spur the events of “Civil War II.” “Civil War II” #1, also written by Bendis and featuring the above art from Marquez, arrives in June.
