EXCLUSIVE: Avengers Academy by Christos Gage and Mike McKone – Term Starts Next Year

marvel-avengersComing out of Big Apple Comic Con pro chatter, Avengers Academy is a new series coming out next year from Marvel by Christos Gage and Mike McKone. That's about all I know. No, actually that's all I know.

I'm guessing it's about an Academy for the Avengers, and one might suppose it's a replacement for Avengers: The Initiative.

Possibly part of the whole post-Secret Invasion/Dark Reign/Siege grim'n'grittiness of Marvel and the new expected Heroic Age light'n'bright tone.

Gage has worked on books such as GI Joe, Absolution, Avengers: Initiative as well as movies such as Teenage Caveman and Breed. Mike McKone, recently moved to the US, is best known for work such as Exiles, Justice League, Vext and Spider-Man.

Looks like it's back to school for the both of them…
