Each week AXEL-IN-CHARGE — CBR’s weekly Friday afternoon Q&A with Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso — features not only his thoughts on the latest industry matters, but also a peek inside upcoming Marvel releases.
In this past Friday’s installment, Alonso shared his enthusiasm for the new volume of “Uncanny Avengers,” freshly relaunched from the creative team of writer Rick Remender and artist Daniel AcuÃ±a. ““AXIS” drew a line in the sand for that series, and this is the next chapter,” Alonso said. “Rick and AcuÃ±a have a new season of stories to tell — and have you seen AcuÃ±a’s art? That is Next Level $#!&!!!”
The column also included a peek at AcuÃ±a’s colored pages from “Uncanny Avengers” #2, scheduled to be on sale Feb. 25.
In light of the news of the upcoming “Ultimate End,” a “Secret Wars” tie-in from the classic “Ultimate Spider-Man” creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley, Alonso advised, “We’ve known that the fate of the Ultimate Universe would be determined by “Secret Wars” for years. We’ve told you that the Marvel Universe and the Ultimate Universe are going to smash together, we’ve told you that “everything ends,” you’ve seen Alex Ross’ nifty poster, which hints at all the craziness to come. Now you’re going to have to read and find out what it all means.”
Another “Secret Wars” tie-in is “Inhumans: Attilan Rising,” announced this past Friday from the creative team of Charles Soule and John Timms. “The Inhuman characters, new and old, are key players in the larger structure of Battleworld, and from a certain perspective, ‘Attilan Rising’ will touch all of the various incredible domains we’ll see as the larger story plays out,” Alonso said.
