Marvel’s next big event will plunge the world into the darkness in Tom Taylor and Iban Coello’s upcoming Dark Ages series on September 1.
The event series was teased in last summer’s Free Comic Book Day: X-Men comic and will unite heroes from all over the Marvel Universe as they battle a terrible new threat and the heroes unthinkably fail (at least for now…this is a comic book after all).
Dark Ages will show how the heroes attempt to recover from the loss, and “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.”
Taylor is looking forward to working with Coello on the series and calls it “…one of the most epic stories I’ve ever been involved in. 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.”
