Kaare Andrews' time! As announced today, Marvel has unveiled a new, Marvel Unlimited app with a new Infinity Comics – or Mar-Vertical – lineup. Comics told using the Webtoon format and exclusive to the app. And that includes a bunch of new titles, such as a prelude series to Amazing Fantasy by Kaare Andrews, featuring Wolverine and the new world he is falling into, now available on the Marvel Unlimited App.
Kaare tells Bleeding Cool "Just wanted to clarify that for fans of the mini-series this prelude is not necessary to enjoy the 5-issue printed comic book story! Think of it as an extra taster. An add-on. And I'm sure it will hit print at some point. Just wanted to get ahead of any concerns."
A lead-in to the upcoming AMAZING FANTASY series by creator Kaare Andrews. Years ago, in a moment of contemplation, Wolverine is set upon and ushered into a journey of AMAZING FANTASY! The past catches up in spectacular fashion as Wolverine stares down demons, old loves, and monsters old and new.
Blending different Marvel eras and genres, Red Room Black Widow, teenage Spider-Man and World War II Captain America wake up on an island of intrigue, darkness and…Amazing Fantasy. Are they dead? Are they dreaming? Or have they truly been transported to another fantastical realm? And is there any way for them to return home? This isn't just a love letter to your favorite Marvel eras, it's a reinvestment in the seminal characters you've always loved, plucked from their quintessential timelines.
Andrews states "My very first memories of reading anything, even before I could read words, were of holding a Marvel comic in my hands at the age of four. I had no idea what the characters were saying, but I was enchanted with the story told through pictures. It is a thrill to return to a new Marvel limited series, writing and drawing not just my favorite characters—but my favorite versions of those characters. I just had to come up with a plan to put WWII Captain America, teenaged Spidey and spy school Black Widow into the same adventure. This is a story that combines not just different Marvel eras but different art styles to depict them. As a creator, sometimes you want to invent new heroes and villains to expand the universe into different places or ideas, but sometimes there is an even greater power in embracing what has come before. In telling fresh and passionate tales with heroes that an audience has already invested a lifetime in. There is a beating heart to these archetypes. And they need to live again!"
