One of the most exciting team ups in the upcoming onslaught of Marvel NOW! titles is Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opeña on Avengers #1. The book isn’t out until November 12, but we’ve got this glimpse into a bit of script and a bit of art.
There’s not a ton here, but the prospect of what may be is definitely exciting.
From Hickman’s script:
Panel 4 – Aleph looks over at Ex and repeats himself. Ex Nihilo puts his hand on Aleph’s shoulder, friendly — and with his other hand makes that Italian gesture, “We did soooo much drinking/stealing/whatever.”
World Razing, Ex Nihilo.
Ah, you miss the point, Aleph. Where’s your sense of romance?
And of course, here is Opeña’s interpretation of that.
Anyway, I have no idea what any of that means. Except the “Italian gesture.” That, I get.
