Peter David Writes Avengers Season One

Peter David Writes Avengers Season One

The other day, Bleeding Cool broke the news that the mysteriously-absent Avengers Season One original graphic novel would be released by Walmart and Asda as part of an exclusive DVD/Blu Ray combo deal.

Some mocked Bleeding Cool's reportage, insisting that it would be some anthology, collection of reprinted tales and smaller than we claimed.

But then the writer of the book went and confirmed the deal. Peter David posted;

Ha Ha. I have a scoop on "Bleeding Cool"

Bleeding Cool announced yesterday that Marvel is releasing a special edition through Walmart of "The Avengers" on Blu-Ray and DVD, packaged with an all new, original "Avengers" graphic novel. But who (they wondered), WHO could possibly have been involved with the creation of it?

Yeah, uh, that would be me. One hundred page original "Avengers" graphic novel. I'll let you find out the artist(s) on your own, but the entire story is by yours truly.

And to those on the Bleeding Cool forum who doubted the original story;

Oh! SO wrong. But thanks for playing! And enjoy the entirely new, never before seen graphic novel along the same lines as their other Season One GNs.

So… who is the artist? Anyone?
