A Few Creative Details For The Marvel UK Revolutionary War

imageCourtesy of the Starlogged blog at the London Film And Comic Con earlier this month, with the team talking about the current Revolutionary War event at Marvel comics, reviving the old Marvel UK characters of the nineties.

An undefined period of time has passed since the original sub-universe and MyS-TECH have been defeated.  In a parallel with the real events at M-UK, S.H.I.E.L.D have crossed the Atlantic, cherry-picked the heroes they wanted to work with and shutdown the rest.

The eight books will be ALPHA and OMEGA prologue and epilogue by Andy Lanning and Alan Cowsill,

Motormouth by Glenn Dakin, Warheads by Andy Lanning and Alan Cowsill, Death's Head by Andy Lanning and Alan Cowsill, Dark Angel by Kieron Gillen, Knights of Pendragon by Rob Williams, Super Soldiers by Rob Williams.

Gary Erskine will return to Warheads, Nick Roche will draw Death's Head, Richard Elson to draw the Alpha and Omega issues, Mark Brooks will do covers for all, Dave Gibbons will draw a Super Soldiers cover and Liam Sharp will do a Death's Head II cover.

And as we now know from the solicitations, Dietrich Smith draws Dark Angel, Simon Coleby draws Knights Of Pendragon.

And yes, both Death's Head incarnations will appear: "It's a buddy movie… It couldn't be more Death's Head"
