Marvel Comics has released details for their gold-level Free Comic Book Day offering. Previously teased as simply an Avengers title, we now know that the issue will feature two stories. The main feature will be written by regular Avengers writer Jason Aaron, with art by Stefano Caselli. Writer Gerry Duggan and artist Mike Deodato will provide the second story. The whole thing will be packaged behind a cover by Avengers artist Ed McGuinness.
Here’s how Marvel describes the issue:
A story by industry superstars Jason Aaron and Stefano Caselli sets the stage of the main Avengers series just in time for Marvel’s highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame, while an all-new thrilling tale from Gerry Duggan and Mike Deodato creates one of the most dynamic and deadly versions of the Avengers ever – stay tuned to learn more!
Additionally, Marvel revealed that a button featuring McGuinness’s cover art will accompany the comic, though those will only be made available to select retailers.
Retailers participating in Free Comic Book Day are required to order at least 25 of each gold-level FCBD book. No details have been released yet on the contents of Marvel’s silver-level Spider-Man FCBD comic. Final order cutoff for most FCBD titles is Monday, February 4th, though FOC for the Marvel books is not until February 25th.
Check out the cover to the FCBD Avengers title, as well as a mockup of the accompanying button, below. This title, and all other Free Comic Book Day comics, will be available on Saturday, May 4th.
