Giant-size Avengers Special #1

Giant-size Avengers Special #1Written by C.B. CEBULSKI, MATT YOCUM, DANIEL MERLIN GOODBREY, DOUGLAS NOBLE, T. CAMPBELL & SCOTT GRAY

Penciled by PAUL NEARY, BRIAN DENHAM, NELSON, DENIS MEDRI & ROGER LANGRIDGE

Cover by BRYAN HITCH

As the Avengers battle to take down the Serpent Society, the team recalls never-before-told tales of their past! Watch as: Spider-Man tries to integrate into a team and learns a thing or two about history, Luke Cage and Wolverine go toe-to-toe against a terrifying cosmic foe, Henry Peter Gyrich becomes an unlikely hero on an unlikely world, and Jarvis the butler cleans house…after some robot Vikings drop by unexpectedly.

On top of all that—it’s the return of the critically-acclaimed Fin Fang Four by Scott Grey and Roger Langridge! That’s 55 pages of all-new comics, PLUS classic reprints from Avengers history! 96 PGS./Rated A …$4.99

The above is the solicitation info for the Avengers book containing my first story for Marvel Comics – Emperor None & The Sky Full Of Moons. The bit where it says “Luke Cage and Wolverine go toe-to-toe against a terrifying cosmic foe” is me. Spider-man is actually in it too and it’s drawn by the rather talented Brian Denham.

The book will be out on 19th December, but if you could all run out and pre-order it from your local comic shop now, this would be much appreciated.

    A transcendent genius – artist and technologist – amoral but passionate. Constructed a gigantic adaptive machine, the size of a warehouse, which folded itself away into sideways dimensions and could be worn like a suit…

    Name of: Norbert Newell. He got the name `None´ (initially NoNe) when he was a graffiti artist (age 14); got arrested once whille tagging a police station and kicked out of college. In retaliation, suspended the entire school 900 feet in the air, with the words “A rule of None” written on the bottom in enormous luminescent letters.

    His genius recognized, was approached by Los Vengadores and was a member until his artistic needs and egotism compelled him to leave and defeat them all in the process… final battle was on the moon, where El Capitan knocked him out. An insulting trick blow with a shield to undo a byzantine scheme.

    When he returned, he defeated them all using the moon, the site of his last (and only) defeat. Proclaimed himself Emperor Norbert the Second of the USA. This grew boring after 100 days, and he set out to make art again. Eventually, he perfected dimensional jump technology, and discovered there were Avengers on many worlds, but only one Emperor None.

    I have too much time on my head…
