Earlier today, Bleeding Cool told you about Marvel's impromptu Empyre panel, to be hosted by Al Ewing and to really run up the prices of key issues relating to Empyre's backstory in the speculator market. Bleeding Cool Ace Reporter David Pierce is on hand at the panel sending us photos of the screens so that you can get these on eBay before the panel is over!
First up, Fantastic Four #2, in which Marvel's first family tricks the skrulls into turning into cows. Okay, that one was probably already worth a little bit of money.
Next, Avengers Annual #14, in which the Avengers inflict even more humiliation on the Skrulls.
The Fantastic Four, once again, piss off the Skrulls in Fantastic Four #257.
And back to the Avengers, basically worse than the American C.I.A., in Avengers #347.
Secret Invasion #8, in which Norman Osborn kills the Skrull empress (but at least he didn't sleep with her).
And finally, Guardians of the Galaxy #25 (the one from the Bendis years), with the X-Men at fault this time.
You know what? We kinda have to side with the Skrulls and the Kree in this upcoming super-mega-crossover event.
Happy hunting, speculators! Empyre #1 hits stores in April!
EMPYRE #1 (OF 6)

• The Kree and the Skrulls have united under a new emperor – and their war fleet is on a collision course for our world.
• On the moon, the Avengers are ready to strike with the full power of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Approaching from outer space, the Fantastic Four are seeking a diplomatic solution.
• If the two teams can't work together to save the day, things can only get worse…
