The lead-up to Infinity War has begun. However, among projects with sprawling collections of superheroes, a new series from Marvel/ComiXology has a much smaller cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Avengers: Back To Basics is headed to ComiXology next March.
Avengers: Back to Basics
The six-issue series will launch over the course of 12 weeks. It will also be available in print once it has concluded in the digital format. ComiXology’s head of content and senior director of communications Chip Mosher believes Back to Basics fits well in the Infinity War hype. He explains: “With buzz over the Avengers reaching a fever pitch, we’re thrilled to help bring fans — new and old — a brand-new Avengers story featuring Thor, The Hulk, Iron Man and other favorites sure to capture the imagination of all readers.”
Avengers: Back to Basics, written by Peter David, features Thor, Hulk, and Iron Man. The heroes try to save Earth from an apocalypse caused by a solar eclipse. The series will include art by Brian Level and Juanan Ramirez.
Marvel and ComiXology
Marvel and ComiXology announced their partnership at San Diego Comic-Con this summer. Following The Immortal Iron Fists, Thor vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universe and Black Panther: Long Live the King, Avengers: Back to Basics is the fourth Marvel title to premiere on ComiXology.
You can access the comic when it releases on March 7th with a ComiXology Unlimited subscription, or buy it through the digital service.
