The Avengers – John Romita Jr is on art
Posted by LiveFor on February 1, 2010
One of my all time favourite comic book artists, John Romita Jr, will be on art duty for the new Avengers comic due out in May. He was worked on so many comic books it would take too long to list them all, but he has done sterling work on Kick-Ass, Thor, Spider-Man and the X-Men to name just a few.
After all the Civil War, Dark Avengers and Siege all of the Avengers comics are being cancelled a single Avengers title will live on written by Brian Michael Bendis. No more Mighty Avengers, Dark Avengers etc.
I recently posted a picture that shows what could well be the line-up of the new team. Captain America is in the line-up – in that pic I thought it was the Steve Rogers version in the Bucky Cap outfit as there was no gun. However, the Romita Jr teaser poster for the new Avengers comic shows a Captain America with a gun…I have no idea if it is Bucky or Steve.
It looks as if Bucky is the new Hawkeye as I think the original will die (again). The solicitation for Siege issue 2 does state one Avenger will die:
The blockbuster Marvel event of the year goes full-blown carnage and madness as the biggest and most brutal battle in Marvel’s history brings together heroes from all sides. Lines have been drawn, and an unlikely hero will save one Avenger, but they can’t save them all. The Siege has begun and it claims its first victim as AN AVENGER WILL DIE!!
Looking forward to more of the teaser posters for the new series. How do you feel about Romita Jr working on The Avengers?
