Marvel releases preview of Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross’ MARVELS EPILOGUE

Back in 1994, I walked into in a comic book shop in San Diego and saw the first issue of MARVELS, with the beautiful acetate cover and painted artwork by Alex Ross.

I was so blown away by the artwork and the terrific story by Busiek in the first issue, that I had to buy each issue when they came out. I still have them to this day, so I got excited when the preview today was released.

Marvel today released a sneak peek at the next story about Phil Sheldon, this time it’s set in the 1970s and showcases a battle between the X-Men and the Sentinels.

The issue will once again be written by Busiek with painted artwork by Ross, and will go on sale right after San Diego Comic-Con. Coincidentally Busiek was announced as a special guest for SDCC, and this being the 25th anniversary of the multi-Eisner winning series I would think a panel is almost a sure thing.

You can bet that when it is released, I will be picking up a copy to add to my collection right next to the original series!
