AGE OF ULTRON has been the most interesting event in recent years. Rather than rely on high octane action and huge explosions, it’s been a story that puts an emphasis on atmosphere, showing us what a broken Marvel world looks like. The only thing I’m annoyed about is that for five issues the title antagonist hasn’t made an appearance. It’s an interesting way to build hype, Ultron has been mentioned and his presence felt, so I guess it’s been working. Issue #6 came out today, but here we have a preview of not #7, but #8.
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Age of Ultron #8, from the critically acclaimed creative team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Brandon Peterson! To ward off Ultron’s devastation of mankind, Wolverine and Susan Storm traveled back in time and made a decision that irrevocably changed the Marvel Universe! Now the duo has come back to present only to find the world turned inside out! Wait until see who’s in charge of the world and how they’ve ascended to power! A reality-spanning choice must be made that’ll shift the course of the Marvel Universe for years to come that no fan can miss! So what are you waiting for? Head on over to your local comic shop today and reserve a copy of Age of Ultron #8!
And here we are with another big tease of what’s to come. What’s Tony Stark doing? When is this? This might not be the most exciting event ever, but it does build hype extremely well. Check back tomorrow for the review of #6.
