Marvel Releases New Art From DEAD NO MORE & CIVIL WAR II

This May, Marvel is once again doubling up on its Free Comic Book Day offerings with FCBD Civil War II #1 and FCBD Captain America #1, which will kick off four upcoming events within the Marvel Universe. Now, Marvel has offered a glimpse of the interior artwork from its FCBD lineup.

FCBD Captain America #1 features the first solo story of Steve Rogers back in action as Cap, with a story by Nick Spencer and artist Jesus Saiz. The newly released artwork offers a good look at the updated Captain America costume, which is sadly missing the classic wings on his mask. This comes on the heels of a sneak peek from artist Paul Renaud.

“Dead No More” is the backup story in FCBD Captain America # 1, which will be written by Spider-Man scribe Dan Slott and drawn by Javier Garron (Star-Lord). It’s widely rumored that the formerly dead character in “Dead No More” will turn out to be Doctor Octopus, Spider-Man’s archenemy who literally stole Peter Parker’s life when he became the Superior Spider-Man. More recently, Doc Ock’s mind resurfaced in the body of a robot at Parker Industries. The preview artwork by Garron doesn’t confirm the Doc Ock theories, but it’s a stunning rendition of Spider-Man’s updated outfit.

FCBD Civil War II # 1 by Brian Michael Bendis and Jim Cheung will be a prelude to the larger Civil War II storyline. Given the prominence of War Machine and Black Panther in this new page by Cheung, they may have a large role in the story alongside Iron Man and Captain Marvel.

Finally, the backup story for FCBD Civil War II #1, by writer Mark Waid and artist Alan Davis, will feature the debut of the All-New Wasp. While it was initially rumored that the new Wasp would be a version of Hope van Dyne from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Waid’s recent interview suggested that the new Wasp will be a teenage girl with a connection to Hank Pym…but not necessarily tied to the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne.

Both of Marvel’s Free Comic Book Day titles will be released on Saturday, May 7 at comic shops everywhere.
