We’re going back in time this fall to celebrate a major milestone for a legendary comics run. In September, classic Avengers writer Roger Stern is teaming up with Infinity War artist Ron Lim for a new one-shot that takes place during Stern’s time on the series. He worked on the series on and off for almost a decade, from 1979-1988, in addition to writing later Avengers titles as well. This new story is titled Avengers: Loki Unleashed #1, and it takes place during the “Avengers: Under Siege” arc.
Here’s the official synopsis: “The Siege of Avengers Mansion is over, and the Avengers are battered and in disarray. It’s the worst time of all for Loki to discover a new source of mystic energies – one that connects to another classic villain and that will have dire consequences for all of reality unless those Avengers who remain standing are able to intercede!”
Check out Patch Zircher‘s cover art for Avengers: Loki Unleashed below. For more information, see Marvel’s website and keep an eye out for an official release date.
