Empyre (2020) #0: Avengers by Al Ewing
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is great stuff! Al Ewing is, as ever, on fine form here, and the art by Pepe Larraz is good enough to make me not mind that Jim Cheung only did the cover.
This is how Marvel events should be, growing naturally from Marvel’s rich history without being impenetrable for people who haven’t read it all (and few will have read everything that’s relevant to this story, because that’s a LOT of comics).
I’ll definitely be sticking around for the rest of this event.
