It’s hard to believe that Marvels came out 25 years ago. To celebrate this anniversary, publisher Marvel Comics is releasing a follow up to the series, aptly titled Marvels Epilogue. This standalone story, written by Kurt Busiek and illustrated by Alex Ross, is set in the 1970s and features the all-new, all-different X-Men. Photojournalist Phil Sheldon is now retired with two adult daughters. While visiting New York City for the holidays, the family finds themselves in the middle of a battle between the mutants and the Sentinels.
Marvel has shared a sneak peek at Ross’ interior artwork in a gorgeous double-page spread which you can check out below.
This story clocks in at only 16 pages, so I’m curious if there will be another story included. This issue will include a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this special along with other bonus features. Marvels Epilogue #1 is set for release on July 24th, 2019.
