Writer Mark Waid and artists Javier Rodriguez and Alvaro Lopez are going back to the beginning for The History of the Marvel Universe.
Announced at C2E2 in Chicago, the six-issue series will recap what's happened in the Marvel Comics universe so far. At this time, it seems like the comic will make clear Marvel's sometimes nebulous continuity, though details about the actual plot are unclear. Steve McNiven will provide the main covers for the series. There has not been any word on variant covers at this time.
Art for the series has shown up online, courtesy of Twitter user Doctor_Spidey.
