AVENGERS Goes Weekly in 2018 and I’m One of the Writers!

More details coming in the days ahead, but the big news is finally out: I’m co-writing AVENGERS with Al Ewing and Mark Waid in 2018 and it’s going to be WEEKLY!!

Our artist dream team is Pepe Larraz, Paco Medina, and Kim Jacinto! The series is turning out so, so beautiful, gang. You have no idea. This announcement image was painted by the one and only Alex Ross.

We’ve been keeping this a secret for so long. At times it was maddening. Writing Marvel’s flagship team as the biggest Marvel movie of all time prepares to drop. It’s wonderful and utterly surreal.

Deepest thanks to editors Tom Brevoort, Axel Alonso, and Alanna Smith for this incredible opportunity. So many times this year I’ve needed to pinch myself during this project.

Okay, that’s it for now. I can’t say anything else that hasn’t been covered in FOOM (Friends Of Ol’ Marvel magazine, in stores tomorrow).

Uncanny Avengers #27 Reviews

Two weeks after our previous issue, Uncanny Avengers #27 arrived in stores last week. It looks like reviewers are enjoying our classic superhero-style series so far:

Bleeding Cool: 9/10 “It’s a classic Avengers book with the sensibilities that made old Avengers stories so memorable. “

Comic Book University: 8/10 “This is such an amazing book.”

Graphic Policy: “a fun, action packed issue that brings me back to the days of the Avengers just doing what they do best.”

IGN: 8.3/10 “Now, this is more like it. Jim Zub’s latest issue of Uncanny Avengers finally seems to capture the team’s dynamic”

The Uncanny Sessions: 9/10 “The art and writing is fantastic and sets up a lot of great stuff for the future.”

Uncanny Avengers #26 Reviews

Uncanny Avengers #26, our first post-Secret Empire issue arrived in stores and reviewers are excited about where we’re taking the series.

Bleeding Cool: 8.5/10 “Uncanny Avengers comes out on the other side of this transition with flying colors. #26 is a solid read with great character conflict and skilled artwork”

IGN: “Sean Izaakse keeps up the tradition of good artists on this title. Some of his double-page spreads are impressive, and he’s got a great handle on the characters.”

Columbus Comics Corner: 9/10 “Uncanny Avengers is definitely a hidden gem amongst the plethora of Marvel titles.”

Comic Attack: “There’s an insane amount of detail that fills the panels and when the action kicks in no momentum is lost.”

Major Spoilers: 8/10 “a good’n, featuring excellent, clean art with tons of detail and nuance, combined with a script that helps to illuminate the members of this team, giving us all reasons for how and why they’ve chosen to stay together”

Rogues Portal: “With fun characters, a good story, and quality artwork, Uncanny Avengers #26 is a great jumping-on point for true believers of the Avengers brand.”

Too Dangerous For A Girl: “Sean Izaakse is an artist I don’t know at all, but I’m an instant fan of his sharp, clean storytelling. “

Comic Box (French): “Uncanny Avengers #26 looks like the start of a vibrant classic story line.”

Uncanny Avengers #25 Reviews

IGN: 8/10 “Almost everyone gets their moment to shine in the script, even Rogue’s unlikely criminal companions.”

Columbus Comics Corner: 9.5/10 “The book is a non-stop sequence of high pace action and great comedic relief from Rogue’s side plot with the villains. It’s hard not to spoil the amount of goodness placed in just this one issue.”

Comic Book University: B+ “This was really fun!”

Comic Buzz: 8/10 “It’s a lot to take in for a writer new to a title, but [Zub] holds his own wonderfully.”

Bleeding Cool: 7/10 “The team of Kim Jacinto, Jahnoy Lindsay, and Juanan Ramirez have made an absolutely gorgeous book here.”
