AVENGERS : WAR ACROSS TIME #1-3 (Paul Levitz / Alan Davis)

En 2023, les célébrations du 60ème anniversaire des Avengers débuteront en janvier par la publication d’une mini-série intitulée War across time. L’équipe créative est composée de deux vétérans : le scénariste Paul Levitz, principalement connu pour son importante carrière chez la Distinguée Concurrence, et le dessinateur Alan Davis !

Premier aperçu :






This January, journey back to the early days of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with two of comics’ mightiest creators in AVENGERS: WAR ACROSS TIME!

Joined by fellow superstar Alan Davis, Eisner Hall of Famer Paul Levitz—known for his storied career at DC Comics—writes his first-ever Marvel Comics story in this five-issue limited series! Set during Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Don Heck’s original groundbreaking run of AVENGERS (1963), this extraordinary saga will be a love letter to Avengers history just in time for the team’s 60th anniversary!

AVENGERS: WAR ACROSS TIME will see the original Avengers at their very best as they battle an onslaught of powerful and strange new threats that strike at the very heart of the team. At the center of it all will be Kang the Conqueror, reaching back from the furthest reaches of time to destroy the Avengers legacy!

Thor! Iron Man! Captain America! Giant-Man and the Wasp! It’s the classic Avengers against the Hulk on the streets of New York, and the beginning of a showdown with Kang the Conqueror that will span the centuries!

“I learned much of my writing craft from THE AVENGERS, and it’s been a delight to pay homage to my old friends Stan, Jack and Don by trying to do something that might have been an extended issue #11.1,” Levitz explained. “We’ve been cooking this up for a long time, and I hope readers have as much fun with it as I did."

À surveiller.


Davis, même en petite forme…

J’ai l’impression qu’il donne volontairement une autre patte à son dessin.

Oui, c est possible.

Spontanément, je dirais qu’il livre ici un découpage classique : pas d’intercases en biais, pas de raccourcis à la Adams. Sans doute pour coller à l’époque dans laquelle l’action semble devoir se situer.


Et Farmer a l’air d’être absent.

C’est l’impression que ça me donne.

Ça a l’air d’être beaucoup plus beau que le one shot sur Diablo.

Cette mini est pour moi !


Dont une période de 25 ans correspondant au règne du responsable editorial Tom Brevoort.

Paul Levitz makes his Marvel debut as The Avengers face Kang the Conquerer in AVENGERS: WAR ACROSS TIME#1 (of 5), on shelves and digital platforms on Wednesday, January 11, 2023, from Marvel Comics

« Now, this one’s a project that has been in the pipeline for a very long time—since at least 2019. It was interrupted and taken off schedule during the lockdown, but we’ve finally got everything in place and completed and ready to go. AVENGERS: WAR ACROSS TIME is a five-issue limited series (with an oversized first issue that started life as two regular-sized issues) written by former DC President Paul Levitz, making his Marvel writing debut after a career spent working for the competition. The artwork was done by Alan Davis in what is likely his last regular assignment prior to his retirement from the business. And as it seems, it’s a love letter to the very earliest days of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and to the Silver Age Marvel Universe into which it was birthed. Kang is the main antagonist for the storyline, though there are other menaces the Avengers will need to contend with along the way, some familiar, some obscure. It should be a whole lot of fun. »

Comment ça Davis prend sa retraite ?

The king of the dwarfs has Mjolnir, the Lava Men are ready to erupt, and while the Avengers are all that stand between Earth and a fiery doom, Kang is picking the perfect moment to strike again.
