Marvels X #1 launches from Marvel Comics next week, a prequel to Marvels, by Kurt Busiek, Jim Krueger, and Well-Bee, and we've got a preview below.
In the preview, our protagonist, David, is trying to enjoy his Marvel superhero action figures, but his parents are being dicks about it.
It seems they're more interested in what's happening on the television, due to the outbreak of a dangerous virus, probably because no one in the Marvel Universe vaccinates their damn children.
A few months later, at least David can watch whatever he wants on the television… though it appears to be nothing but static.
And his whole family, it seems, has been infected by the virus.
And for some, like his grandmother, it's progressing rapidly.
Mutant measles continue to destroy humanity in Marvels X #1 on Wednesday.
MARVELS X #1 (OF 6)
(W) Alex Ross, Jim Krueger (A) Well-Bee (CA) Alex Ross
David has a problem. He lives in a world of monsters that would love to devour him. He's the last boy on Earth. The last human being on Earth. And these creatures that see him only as prey, they're his former neighbors. He has one hope: to get to New York. To get to where Captain America and the rest of the heroes are. Alex Ross and Jim Krueger combine their abilities with artist Well-Bee to tell a very uncanny prequel to the legendary EARTH X trilogy.
