Marvel Comics February 2009 Solicits – Siege

Siege (Marvel Comics) February 2009 Solicits

Siege Event - Fall of Asgard

Siege Event - Fall of Asgard

I am so excited about Siege. It is the only event that will feature the Thor and ultimately the fall of Asgard. Add in the Dark Avengers (to be honest I’m only excited about more Thor and Ares interaction) and the New Avengers and you’ve got me hook, line, and sinker.

Besides Siege’s focus on Thor, the Cabal, and the Dark Avengers (I think the cover for Dark Avengers 14 confirmed Sentry’s death), I’m really looking forward to Secret Warriors and Guardian of the Galaxy (Yah for evil Adam Warlock).

The Siege: Avengers Assemble

Siege, which kicks off in January, is a new four issue “Marvel event” that will bring an end to Norman Osborn’s Dark Reign. It’s a “seismic shift in the Avengers books” akin to that of Avengers Disassembled, said Bendis. Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America will come back together, uniting for the first time in a few years.

December will see a prologue issue called Siege: The Cabal, which is drawn by Michael Lark. The four-issue mini that follows starting in January will be drawn by Olivier Coipel. Bendis made a point of noting the four issue length, saying it’ll be “boom boom boom” with action from start to finish.

Marvel’s only official statement is “Stay tuned for news from the Diamond Retailer Summit next week.” We’ll have full coverage from the Summit and more details for you then.
