Art dealer Sal Abbinanti has debuted Bill Sienkiewicz’s stunning variant cover for Elektra #1, which arrives in April as part of Marvel’s All-New Marvel NOW! initiative. The issue also boasts covers by Michael Del Mundo, Milo Manara, Paolo Rivera and Skottie Young.
Sienkiewicz of course has a long history with the character, having collaborated with her creator Frank Miller on the 1986 Epic Comics miniseries Elektra: Assassin. He also provided covers for a few issues of her 2001-2004 Marvel Knights series, as well as for the 2005 miniseries Elektra: The Hand.
As part of All-New Marvel NOW!, veteran artist Lee Garbett will team in February with writer AlEwing for Loki: Agent of Asgard, a series the god of mischief is fully grown and in the service of the All-Mother. More immediately, however, Marvel is setting the stage for the initiative with All-New Marvel NOW! Point One #1, a one-shot that arrives Jan. 8 with a Garbett-drawn Loki serving as the thread that brings together all of the stories.
In my interview with Garbett, the artist clearly relishes the opportunity to draw Asgard’s new “one-man secret service” as well as work with Ewing. ROBOT 6 is also pleased to provide an exclusive page from the upcoming All-New Marvel NOW Point One.
