IDW promises the new series will feature “a dynamic roster to battle a mega-sized threat, weirder and wilder than any faced before!”
Manning discussed what he has planned for the series:
“I’m really excited about working on Marvel Action: Avengers – we’re planning big, blockbuster plots, surprising twists, and both returning villains and new threats. We’ll be digging into the personalities of these heroes to show all the fans – kids and adults both – exactly what makes them so great.”
This isn’t the first time Manning has got to work with the Marvel Universe. He previously authored Iron Man: The Ultimate Guide to the Armored Super Hero and The Avengers Encyclopedia.
Artist Jon Sommariva, who is a veteran to a number of IDW properties including Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, em>Batman/TMNT Adventures, Star Wars Adventures, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Amazing Adventures, expressed how excited he was about this project:
“I am absolutely thrilled and inspired to be drawing some of the most iconic characters in the history of comics. I grew up with these characters, so it’s a real joy to bring my high energy to the visual style of Marvel Action: Avengers. I can’t wait to make fun, action-packed comics for fans of all ages!”
Marvel Action: Avengers joins other previously announced IDW projects in the Marvel Universe including Marvel Action: Spider-Man and Marvel Action: Black Panther. The series were announced back in July, where IDW editor-in-chief John Barber stated, “From Iron Man to Captain Marvel, from the Hulk to Shuri — the Marvel pantheon has something for everyone. With this team-up, Marvel and IDW aim to bring exciting, all-new comics to a generation growing up in a Marvel world.
Marvel Action: Avengers #1 is expected to hit comic book shelves in December.
