Suffering from teaser fatigue? This one might give you a chuckle.
Source: Press Release
For the past few weeks, Marvel has been sending out their one-word teasers for upcoming Marvel SOON! books at such a high frequency that we're not even sure how to make fun of them anymore without repeating ourselves (and we only like to reuse jokes twice, maybe three times in a single week). It's not the first time, either. Marvel's teasers have been becoming increasingly simplistic for a while now, to the point where they're now just a single word with a gradient slapped on it in Photoshop, and maybe the names of the creators.
Well, Image Comics has never been afraid to take risks and push boundaries in this industry, so we were not surprised when they sent us this teaser this morning, consisting only of the word "New" and a Skybound logo. Beating Marvel at their own game, Image has forgone any gradient or effects on the letters whatsoever. Expect Marvel to retaliate with blank images next week.
Oh, and the file is named Teaser_01, so we can assume there will be more of these.
