Empyre #0 is coming in two flavours, Avengers Empyre #0 with a touch of Al Ewing and Pepe Larraz and Fantastic Four Empyre #0, garnished with Dan Slott and just a soupcon of RB Silva. Dan Slott promises that Empyre will have long-lasting life-changing impact on the Fantastic Four, that cannot be undone… and it begins here.
And Bleeding Cool has a look ahead at the first of those courses, Avengers: Empyre #0 by Ewing and Larraz.
