Writer Kurt Busiek and artist Alex Ross' classic 1994 Marvel comic book Marvels is getting a new chapter this July in Marvels Epilogue #1.
Marvels Epilogue #1 revists photojournalist Phil Sheldon, who served as the main protagonist of Busiek and Ross' original Marvels limited series. The comic follows the now-retired Sheldon, as he visits New York City with his two adult daughters for the holiday season. Little does Sheldon known, his days of chronicling superhero action aren't over just yet.
This brand-new standalone story takes place in the 1970s and prominently features the "All-New, All-Different" iteration of the X-Men synonymous with that decade. The issue finds the X-Men squaring off against the sentinels, with Sheldon and his daughters bearing witness to the mutant versus robot action.
Marvel has released Ross' cover for Marvels Epilogue #1, as well as a sneak peek at his interior art. Additionally, the publisher has revealed that the issue itself will peel back the curtain and give readers a behind-the-scenes look at the story, the process behind the book's production and fun facts from the creative team.
Written by Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross with art and a cover by Ross, Marvels Epilogue #1 goes on sale this July from Marvel Comics. Variant covers will be provided by Dave Johnson, Ron Lim, Skottie Young, Fred Hembeck and Dave Cockrum.
