Infinity_2_CoverINFINITY #2 (Hickman, Opena, Weaver)

I couldn’t be happier when I saw Jerome Opena back on for this issue. Seeing his beautiful art of Captain America and Ex Nihilo with Hickman’s narrative over top of it all took me back to the giddiness I felt when I opened up Avengers #1. The intensity of his work, especially in the characters faces, really complements Hickman’s writing and captures every emotion wonderfully. Even though there were more artists involved than just Opena, it is impressive that this group, going back as far Avengers #1, have essentially redesigned the Cosmic Marvel universe. The Avengers’ spacesuits, the starships, the alien designs, and even a few costumes are re-imagined and reinvigorated with talented artists like Opena getting to show off.

Infinity is beginning to shed the problem of ‘too much story in too little time’ that plagues crossovers, especially ones that are based in the cosmic part of the universe. Hickman’s true vision of the story is beginning to show and with an exciting final panel, it is safe to say Infinity is going to just get better from here on out.

MIGHTAVN2013001-DC11-LR-cd4d2Interview: Al Ewing Assembles Marvel’s MIGHTY AVENGERS: It’s your basic “there came a day…” scenario, in that something massive and terrible happens – Thanos’ attack on NYC – and there are people in the area who come together to stop it. It starts off as a tight core of Luke, Monica, Spidey and Ronin, and accumulates people from there as they get drawn in.
