5 Pages from April's A4: Empire with a Y #1 [Preview]

Along with their full April solicitations, Marvel has released a preview of the first issue of Empyre with a Y, the latest super-mega-crossover event that will shake the Marvel Universe to its foundations, leaving nothing ever the same again (until the next super-mega-crossover event, which will presumably happen a few months later). There's two issues of Empyre with a Y hitting stores in April (and a buttload of tie-ins), the first for six bucks and the second for five bucks.

But look, if you want premium comics like Empyre with a Y, you're going to have to pay premium prices, no matter what Bernie Sanders says. It's a slippery slope, really. First you allow socialism to gain a foothold, next comic book prices become reasonable, and before you know it comic book publishers can't even afford to misspell words with a Y where an I should be. Is that what you want?!

Didn't think so.

Check out the solicits and preview below.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
