Avengers vs. X-Men: War is Adorable When Skottie Young Draws It

Skottie Young is one of our favorite artists in all of comics. He has a style that all his own and you instantly know it when you see it and no one else looks like him.

Today on Twitter, Young posted his Midtown Comics exclusive variant cover for Avengers vs. X-Men #1 and it is, in a word, adorable.

If Skottie Young drew the whole mini-series like this it would instantly become my most anticipated book of the year.


  1. Who’s that getting shocked by Storm?

  2. This is already my new desktop background.

  3. I want to go to there.

  4. I really like the way he shaded Daredevil and drew Beast.

  5. Fun as hell. Love it.

  6. that is pretty rad.


  8. 😀 Meanie Emma Frost, Adorable.

  9. Baby Dr. Strange is hilarious.

  10. Aweomse. Please let Marvel commission an AvX parody issue based on this cover.

  11. Delightful.

  12. Thor’s bugged-out Invader Zim eyes are just priceless.

  13. For those of you here who aren’t already: BUY SCOTTIE YOUNG’S OZ COMICS!!!

    Seriously underrated books that are the ultimate comics for kids. Feel like lot of mainstream Big Two readers forget that marvel is publishing those.

    • I don’t think they’re all that underrated. The first two books have won Eisners, if memory serves well.

      That being said, I totally agree. They follow the original Baum books almost the the letter and I look forward to reading them to the child my wife and I will soon be having.

  14. I’m pumped for this! At first I wasn’t that pumped but now I’m pumped, this seems like perhaps the most unpretentious Marvel crossover event in like a decade.

  15. This is awesome. Im totally buying it

  16. I started to list the things I love in this image, and then I got tired of typing. Too many great things about it.

    But my favorite is Magneto in footy pajamas. I can honestly say I’ve never seen that in my 20+ years of reading comics.

  17. I love that White Queen is poking Daredevil in the eye!

  18. I would like to see an Invincible babies battle. Tiny little intestines and cubby severed limbs everywhere


  20. Pacifers,beenie caps and chipped teeth BEAT OUT pouches,swords and firearms all the time

  21. What Conor Said.

    If THIS was the event then I’d buy it in a heartbeat.

    Bucktooth Captain America….Emma Frost poking Daredevil’s eye…The best drawing of Beast in YEARS…Yeah I want this to happen.

  22. Remember when beast looked like a horse or whatever? WTF WAS that?

  23. Cute, just plain cute!


  24. Still no interest in the event, but now more than ever I want a large Skottie Young piece before it ends up costing $10,000.

  25. Must have.

  26. I’d love to have that as a poster on my wall.

  27. ill be the first to admit it. I just bustled on over to midtown comics website and pre-ordered it. I’m lucky enough to have access to a high resolution scanner and oversized printer to which i will be making myself a poster of this.
