The Only Thing To Fear Is Another Marvel Event

By: 12.22.10  •  3 Comments

Yesterday Joe Quesada, Tom Brevoort, and Alex Alonso made an appearance at Midtown Comics in New York City to announce Marvel’s big event for 2011, the new “Fear Itself” series.  After the jump is teaser artwork, the trailer, and a look at the villain.  Quesada was wearing a Mickey Mouse T-shirt (sucking up to the boss?).  The series will start in March 2011 with an oversized one-shot set in WWII written by Ed Brubaker with pencils by Scot Eaton.  Then, starting in April 11, Marvel will release seven more issues written by Matt Fraction with pencils by Stuart Immonen, at a cost of $3.99 apiece.

Fraction will maintain his current duties on Invincible Iron Man and Thor through the Fear Itself run, but will be toning down his involvement on Uncanny X-Men. Immonen is dropping his role as artist of Brian Bendis’ New Avengers to focus solely on the event. […] Not many details about the series were revealed, but it’s clear that Marvel is intent on telling a story based within a real world context but through the eyes of its superheroes… not unlike the approach they took with the immensely successful Civil War. Quesada left his pitch to the crowd on a very mysterious note asking, “Who will be the eight most worthy on the planet?” [IGN]

Oh, oh, I know this one!  It’s The Pogues right?
