This September, the world outside your window is about to end in DARK AGES, a “thrilling new vision of the Marvel Universe” from writer Tom Taylor and artist Iban Coello.
Foreshadowed in last year’s Free Comic Book Day: X-Men and in today’s series of mysterious teasers, this new limited series series will see heroes from every corner of the Marvel Universe unite against a new threat – and fail. Their defeat will usher in an exciting new age full of heartbreaking loss and unimaginable stakes. As the world is remade, fans will meet fascinating new versions of their favorite heroes as they fight to overcome insurmountable odds and restore hope to the universe.
Speaking about the announcement, Taylor said “I’m excited to team up with the brilliant Iban Coello on one of the most epic stories I’ve ever been involved in.”
He continued, adding “Marvel’s Dark Ages is a story unlike any we’ve told before. And it all begins with the shocking revelation of what the Watcher has been watching for. A danger older than the Earth threatens everything. And for once, the heroes who have saved the planet time and again find themselves almost completely powerless in the face of it. X-Men and Avengers will assemble. Spider-people and the Fantastic Four will come together. Heroes for Hire will fight alongside Champions. But none of it will be enough. The lights are about to go out… forever.”
Featuring a cover by Cobello, DARK AGES #1 goes on sale in print and digital formats on September 1st 2021.
