As Marvel Comics continues its trek through the Marvel NOW! publishing initiative, there's one title that fans have been asking about since Free Comic Book Day 2012: "Age of Ultron." Written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Bryan Hitch, "Age of Ultron" reintroduces the Avengers' greatest foe to the Marvel U and the publisher has released a new look at Hitch's interior art.
In addition to the preview, Marvel has debuted the logo for "Age of Ultron," announcing that every regular cover for the first issue will feature a foil treatment and design at no extra cost.
"Literally not a day has gone by over the past year and a half without people asking me on Twitter where this was," series writer Brian Bendis said in 2012. "I know that people are looking forward to this, so to finally debut it, and for it to be -Â I imagine -Â better than people thought it would be is great...it takes one of Marvel's classic villains to a level we've never seen him before, and it pushed our Marvel heroes to a place they've never been before."
Check out Hitch's Art and the solicitation info below.
