A.X.E.: Judgment Day: Marvel Drops August Crossover Solicitations

With the Civil War super-mega-crossover event in 2006, Marvel Comics invented one of the most important new technologies to come to the comics industry since the die-cut holofoil variant cover: heroes vs. heroes super-mega-crossover event. It's a concept that served Marvel well in the ensuing years. Avengers vs. X-Men. X-Men vs. Inhumans. Civil War 2. Wolverine's dick vs Wolverine's other dick. To be honest, since then, comic publishing technology has mostly stagnated… until now. Launching in July, A.X.E.: Judgment Day will rock the comic book publishing industry to its foundations, leaving nothing the same again, when it introduces the future of super-mega-crossover events: hereos vs. heroes… vs. heroes. You've done it again, House of Ideas!

Marvel has just revealed the solicitations for all the A.X.E.: Judgment Day comics and tie-ins hitting stores in August (you know, as long as they have the paper to print them).

Written by comics mastermind Kieron Gillen and drawn by acclaimed artist Valerio Schiti, this latest Marvel Comics crossover event begins when the Eternals target mutantkind and the Avengers find themselves struggling to prevent an apocalyptic war between two of the strongest factions on the planet. The saga will pay off various plot threads that have defined these franchises in recent years, including mutantkind's newfound immortality, the Eternals' discovery of long-hidden truths about their species, and the Avengers' intense dealings with the Celestials.

Check out the solicits below:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
