Empyre Gets Two Zero Issues – One Each For the FF and the Avengers

Empyre #1 by Dan Slott, Al Ewing and Valerio Schiti is out in comic stores in April. But as we know, events can't start with an issue #1, but an issue #0. And Marvel is doubling down with two issue zeroes. With Empyre writers Dan Slott and Al Ewing taking one apiece. Bleeding Cool reported that RB Silva was off an upcoming issue of X-Men – could this be because he's now on Empyre Fantastic Four #0? And he's joined by HOXPOX stablemate Pepe Larraz on Empyre: Avengers #0

In Ewing and Larraz's EMPYRE #0: AVENGERS, old allies have returned and the Avengers are called to the new Green Area of the Moon to help face a terrible enemy. And in Slott and Silva's EMPYRE #0: FANTASTIC FOUR, the Fantastic Four will witness the final conflict of the Kree/Skrull War and meet a long hidden Elder of the Universe… the mysterious Profiteer! Both one-shots will lay the cosmic groundwork for Marvel's next incredible saga and feature first appearances of major new players in the Marvel Universe!

"EMPYRE starts with a bang – the Avengers and the Fantastic Four meeting a threat from two sides, with two different strategies – and these #0 issues will let set readers up to see how they got there," says Ewing. "As the Avengers meet with old friends, and the Fantastic Four run into some brand new ones, both teams face some stark choices and a test of their character as a team. It's the best way to get inside the heads of the Avengers and the Fantastic Four before the main action begins."
