Warren Ellis To Write An Original Graphic Novel For Marvel Called Avengers: Endless Wartime
Warren Ellis is returning to Marvel to write a new graphic novel called Avengers: Endless Wartime. The book is the first in a planned series of new original hardcover graphic novels from Marvel set outside of current continuity. The book is scheduled for an October release and will feature art from Mike McKone. Ellis wrote the Extremis story for Iron Man, which has gained in popularity for obvious reasons, but the writer last worked with marvel on Astonishing X-Men:Xenogenesis a few years back. McKone is best known for his work on Avengers Academy and Teen Titans.
Avengers: Endless Wartime will feature an introduction from Clark “Agent Coulson” Gregg and an afterword from Stan “The Man” Lee. It’s priced at $24.99 on Amazon and a synopsis was revealed along with the cover image:
An abomination, long thought buried, has resurfaced in a war-torn land. But now it wears an American flag. Faced with another nightmare reborn, Captain America will not stand for yet more death at the hands of a ghost from his past. Haunted by his greatest shame, Thor must renew the hunt for a familiar beast. At their side, an assemblage of allies united to end the threats no one of them could face alone. They are soldiers. Warriors. Comrades-in-arms. Mighty heroes led by a living legend, stronger together than apart. They are the Avengers.
Avengers: Endless Wartime is bookended by an introduction from Marvel’s The Avengers star Clark Gregg (better known as “Agent Phil Coulson”) and an afterword from the legendary Stan Lee, co-creator of this blockbuster super hero team.
