Comixology has launched it’s latest exclusive Marvel digital first title. This time around, it’s Avengers: Back to Basics. A coincidence that there’s an Avengers original during the run up to the Infinity War film? I suppose that depends on whether you believe in coincidence.
Peter David is writing this tale of Iron Man, Hulk and Thor attempting to avert Ragnarok, while Brian Level and Juanan Ramirez split the art duties.
Official PR follows:
