Hajime Isayama's cover has been revealed for the 790th issue of Brutus, the Japanese pop-culture magazine that will include a crossover comic in which Marvel's Avengers fight Attack on Titan's 46-foot-tall Female Titan on the streets of New York City.
Alas, Isayayma's cover illustration doesn't depict that showdown, but rather the cast of his hit manga Attack on Titan reimagined as school children, hanging out in Tokyo's Ueno Park as danger looms in the distance.
Debuting in 2009, Attack on Titan is a post-apocalyptic fantasy set in a world where remorseless, flesh-eating giants have all but wiped out humanity, whose remnants are forced to live within a country surrounded by three enormous walls. The series has sold more than 30 million copies to date and inspired spinoff manga, light novels, video games and a hit anime. A live-action movie is also in development.
The issue of Brutus, which also includes an interview with Isayayma and a preview of the upcoming Attack on Titan art exhibit, goes on sale Saturday in Japan.
