New York, NY—August 17, 2017—This fall, MARVEL LEGACY #1 breaks the barriers of the Marvel Universe with a rich and exciting 50-page one shot that will take you back to the dawn of time with the introduction of 1,000,000 BC Avengers – and sets the stage for the returns and surprises to come in MARVEL LEGACY! And the biggest story in the Marvel Universe just got more spectacular.
In addition to the acclaimed team of artist Esad Ribic (Secret Wars), colorist Matthew Wilson (Mighty Thor) and writer Jason Aaron (Mighty Thor), Marvel is proud to announce an all-star roster of superstar artists who will be bringing their talents and creativity to the pages of MARVEL LEGACY #1, including Steve McNiven, Russell Dauterman, Chris Samnee, Alex Maleev, Stuart Immonen, Pepe Larraz, Jim Cheung, Daniel Acuna, Greg Land and Ed McGuinness.
“Because the events of MARVEL LEGACY #1 impact on so many corners of the Marvel Universe and reflect the upcoming storylines in so many of our titles, it only made sense to call on the artists most associated with those titles to cement the connection,” said SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Plus, it means that this book represents a Murderer’s Row of artistic talent and a real showpiece for those who love excellent comic book graphics.”
“I was thrilled to join Jason, Esad, and Matt on LEGACY #1,” added Russell Dauterman. “The bit I illustrated checks in with my corner of the Marvel Universe, the world of Thor, and teases our biggest story yet.”
