Comic Art for Marvel's SECRET WARS: 2099
Marvel is launching a new comic called Secret Wars 2099 this May. It comes from writer Peter David and artist Will Sliney. We've got our first look at the comic thanks to some art and sketches released by the publisher, and I've gotta say: Captain America looks absolutely frightening with those muscles, especially in the sketch directly below. While talking to Marvel, David had this to say about the comic and Captain America:
“I can do whatever the hell I want. Since this is a new 2099, I don’t feel any need to adhere to the previous 2099 continuity. For instance, there was already a Captain America 2099 and I felt no need to use that one in crafting the Avengers. My Cap is wholly original. And I have to admit, I love seeing fans going nuts because she’s built up like an actual weight lifter. No one thinks anything of the Super Soldier serum giving huge muscles to a man, but do it with a woman and suddenly many fans are howling in protest. She looks like a big woman, guys. Deal with it.”
And that explains that. Here's the comic description:
When everything ends, it’s time to go back to the future. Revisit the world of 2099 and see it a whole new light, as characters who have never been seen before make their first appearances – including the AVENGERS 2099. Can the ideal of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes survive in a world where megacorporations rule with an iron fist?
