Next Month Al Ewing and artist Javier Rodriguez will take us on a psychedelic journey into the deepest parts of the Multiverse in a five-part series that kicks of with issue #1 on 8 / 11
The team will feature classic members like Doctor Strange and the Silver Surfer but will also feature newer Defenders such as Cloud and Betty Banner aka Harpy. Joining them will be the the wearer of the eternity mask: The Masked Raider whom we met back in Marvel #1000
As to what’s going to happen in this run:
“We’ve been holding onto this a little bit, but a big part of this Defenders run involves exploring previous Marvel realities,” Ewing told SYFY in an exclusive interview
Here is the official solicit and unlettered artwork released today from Marvel featuring Javier Rodriguez’s art with inking by Álvaro López.
