Preview: AVENGERS #7 Art from Dustin Weaver [Exclusive]

We get previews. Sometimes they’re exclusive, and it’s all well and good, and part of the game. But sometimes those previews are from Dustin Weaver for Avengers #7 and we think, where is this guy on the comics that he’s not drawing, but should be? Sure it’s a ridiculous sentence, but good comic book art can make a man stupid.

So anyway, here’s some gorgeous Avengers #7 art from Dustin Weaver, who will be re-teaming with his S.H.I.E.L.D. collaborator, Jonathan Hickman. The results are glorious, obviously.


  1. O God so awesome

  2. I cursed out loud when I saw this. Glorious, indeed. About goddamn time the Avengers got ambitious again…

  3. Who’s the guy with the mechanical body and glasses? Machine Man? This looks AM-A-ZING.

  4. Why, Comic Gods, is this book not in my hands currently? Can you not warp and shift time to correct this grievous injustice?

  5. Ok, Who is the guy with the crescent moon on his forehead and…deep breaths…is that a Captain Universe I see?

  6. Captain Universe? Goodness, I didn’t realize the Captain Universe pageant still happened. Poor Steve Rogers, always a Captain America and never a Captain Universe.

    • Steve Rogers did well in the swimsuit competition, but Captain Luxembourg really earned it in the “being right about Scott Summers” portion.

  7. I do believe Hickman is bringing in the New Universe on some level: – the cover is a total homage to this.

    And in that panel of Stark in the preview, you can see the Star Brand on the monitor in front of him.

  8. I am so super-excited for when this starts along with New Avengers, Don-God-Hickman has definitely got a great mixture of characters & team members he’s gonna be playing with, & what a bunch of amazing artists he has working with him Opena, Adam Kubert, Weaver & Epting wonder who else he’ll have?

    This’ll hopefully be what a super team should be about?!

  9. Never read a book with Weaver on art but…this looks like all sorts of awesome.

  10. I wish they wouldn’t change costumes to fit the movies it bums me out

    • Yeah, not really a fan of chin-strap-Cap.

    • That was my first thought as well. These pages look amazing *but* Weaver’s rendition of Cap’s new outfit makes it look particularly bad. Not necessarily Weaver’s fault. It’s what he’s told to draw. But the new costume comes off a little better depending on the artist. Romita’s take looks decent, for instance.

    • Cant stand the new movie looking chin-strap/helmet Cap in all the comics. Cap looks just stupid in 9 out of every 10 comics I see him in these days. Please bring back the old mask!

  11. Looks like the Sentry is coming back…

  12. Add this (the references to New Universe) to the fact Hickman will be using a plethora of more obscure Avengers, and I really get the impression that his run will serve as a great history lesson/homage to a lot of facets of the Marvel Universe.

    In that same way he managed to weave various elements of past & present continuity into his F4/FF run, I expect being compelled to do a lot of re-reading, researching, discovering & engaging with titles I otherwise would not have know of by simply reading present-continuity books. You could argue to the contrary, but that’s what makes comics worth reading in my opinion.

    Haven’t been this excited for a new series in a long time. One week!

  13. When it comes to perspective, Weaver is one of the better artists in the industry.

  14. Minor costume complaints aside, Hickman’s Avengers has gone from a book I was going to pass on to one I’m increasingly anticipating. All the previews for this sound and look very cool. Plus I might also read New Avengers. I’ve stayed away from Avengers comics as much as possible since Secret Invasion. This re-launch seems to be winning me back.

  15. Wow that really looks awesome!
