Marvel Reveals Two All-New “Empyre” One-Shots For April

The Press Release:
When EMPYRE #1 hits stores in April, it will be a culmination of decades worth of Marvel storytelling in an epic sci-fi tapestry that will delight both longtime comic fans and newcomers! Before the debut issue lands, two all-new essential one-shots will pave the way to this grand event: EMPYRE #0: AVENGERS and EMPYRE #0: FANTASTIC FOUR! This pair of stories will be written by the architects of EMPYRE themselves, Al Ewing and Dan Slott with art by Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva! Fresh off their work on HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X, these two superstar artists will once again complement each other’s skills in mirroring stories!

In Ewing and Larraz’s EMPYRE #0: AVENGERS, old allies have returned and the Avengers are called to the new Green Area of the Moon to help face a terrible enemy. And in Slott and Silva’s EMPYRE #0: FANTASTIC FOUR, the Fantastic Four will witness the final conflict of the Kree/Skrull War and meet a long hidden Elder of the Universe… the mysterious Profiteer! Both one-shots will lay the cosmic groundwork for Marvel’s next incredible saga and feature first appearances of major new players in the Marvel Universe!

“EMPYRE starts with a bang – the Avengers and the Fantastic Four meeting a threat from two sides, with two different strategies – and these #0 issues will let set readers up to see how they got there,” says Ewing. “As the Avengers meet with old friends, and the Fantastic Four run into some brand-new ones, both teams face some stark choices and a test of their character as a team. It’s the best way to get inside the heads of the Avengers and the Fantastic Four before the main action begins.”

Check out the glorious connecting covers by iconic artist Jim Cheung below, and don’t miss the pivotal start to this legendary event this April in EMPYRE #0: AVENGERS and EMPYRE #0: FANTASTIC FOUR! For more information on EMPYRE, visit marvel.com.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: For many years, the monthly series of “Fantastic Four” was on my pull list at the local comic book shop. Eventually I slowed down my purchases and moved onto other titles, but I would still often refer to the collected editions that I had secured in my bookcase. Those individual issues are packed and protected at this time and require a bit of a routine and care if I am to read them now. Yeah I am one of “those” collectors, but I digress. The bottom line is that I remained a fan of the First Family and enjoyed their first two films, most of the cartoons but couldn’t for the life of me get through that Josh Trank steaming pile of horse business that came out a couple of years ago. That all being said I am interested in seeing what can come of the team in today’s world on the illustrated page. What do you think? Chime in down below.
