One of Marvel's announcements at Comic-Con was that they were introducing a new line of graphic novels dubbed Season One, contemporizing the origins of some of their greatest characters. But don't go thinking this is a New 52 style reboot thing. They claim these issues are aimed at old and new fans alike, offering new revelations for longtime readers – kinda like their #-1 stunt over a decade ago.
“With Marvel Season One, we’ve assembled a group of great creators who’re delivering exciting, iconic, in-continuity stories of our most popular heroes,” said Tom Brevoort, Marvel SVP/Executive Editor. “If you’re a new fan, you can start your journey into comics with Season One and if you’re a seasoned fan you’ll find some thrilling new insight into your favorite characters.”
Just who are those creators? Well, on Spider-Man Season One, there's Cullen Bunn and Neil Edwards. Daredevil gets Antony Johnston and Wellinton Alves. The X-Men have Dennis Hopeless and Jamie McKelvie, while the Fantastic Four sport Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and David Marquez.
Here's the first batch of covers for Marvel's "Season One" initiative.
