The prelude to super-mega-crossover event Infinity looks to be a little bit more cerebral than usual.
Source: Press Release
Marvel sends out a lot of "first looks" at upcoming comics which feature unlettered artwork which, while looking very nice, doesn't really let readers know a whole lot about what the heck is going on in the comic. When we checked our inbox and found this preview for New Avengers #9, we had had enough. So we sent ace reporter ThanosCopter to break into Marvel's headquarters and steal Jonathan Hickman's script so that we could letter it ourselves. Keep in mind, the final copy may end up changing things up a bit, but we think this is pretty close to what will eventually see print, and it certainly embodies Hickman's thoughtful, intellectual style.
Oh, and spoilers.
