Why The Russos Are The Best Thing to Happen to the MCU Since Joss Whedon
BOOM! sent out a piece of artwork today for Hypernaturals, the upcoming cosmic comic they’ll publish by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, the duo who helped define the past few years of the cosmic corner of the Marvel Universe in Nova, Guardians of the Galaxy and related titles. Although they didn’t send out anything beyond the above image, more information on the book is available at the Free Comic Book Day website , as Hypernaturals will be BOOM!’s offering next month (The Dune book that was previously listed on the FCBD page has been removed).
According to the text on the FCBD site:
This Free Comic Book Day… A universe trembles.
It is the far future; the human race has finally colonized the galaxy, preserving an era of prosperity that’s only possible because of The Hypernaturals. They’re a celebrated, galaxy-wide superhero task force that keeps the peace. That is, until they all mysteriously vanish. Now, as the galaxy teeters on the brink of chaos, it’s up to a group of retired and long forgotten Hypernaturals – and their novice recruits – to save the galaxy from complete destruction.
Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, the superstar writing duo behind Annihilation and The Legion, launch an all-new original series that takes cosmic super-heroes to a new frontier. Experience the special preview issue of The Hypernaturals this May and pick up the #1 issue this July!
Update: Abnett and Lanning talked to CBR about the comic, the art team and more.
