I? Am? LIVING for this EPIC Avengers Cover spread in the pages of Entertainment Weekly!
This is SO beautifully done in crisp, eye-popping detail and I thoroughly appreciate the wink and nod to literally my FAVORITE comic book illustrator of all time: Jim Lee. For the uninitiated among us, this piece is clearly paying homage to the 90’s X-Men revamp, spearheaded by Mr. Lee, shortly after the events of the Muir Isle Saga. Such a bittersweet read, BTW. You should totally go pick it up.
Just when I think the marketers behind Avengers: Age of Ultron couldn’t think of anything else mind-blowing to shove down their loyal consumers’ collective throats, they go and do this. Bravo nameless genius marketing team. Bravo, indeed.
Fun Fact: Jim Lee’s piece is also paying homage to the original X-Men cover. SO meta!
