‘AXE: Judgment Day’ Gets Killer Covers By Lucas Werneck
by Tony Thornley
AXE: Judgment Day is still months away but we’re starting to see some incredible covers, and we’ve got a glimpse of the first four here.
The X-Men, Eternals and Avengers are about to be drawn into an all out war. In July, Kieron Gillen & Valerio Schiti are going to bring Judgment Day to Krakoa. Superstar artists Lucas Werneck and Ashley Witter are hard at work on a series of variants for each issue, with Werneck illustrating the Women of Judgment Day, and Witter illustrating the men. The best part is that we have a glance at Werneck’s covers right here.
The covers feature some of the greatest characters in the Marvel Universe:
· Echo – Equipped with unmatched fighting skills, this former street-level hero now burns brightly with the power of the Phoenix Force. But does she have enough control of her new cosmic power to assist her fellow Avengers?
· Thena – One of the Eternals’ fiercest warriors, Thena doesn’t always agree with the ways of her species. Will she fall in line when the Eternals target mutantkind or cause a schism amongst their ranks?
· Jean Grey – A central figure of mutantkind and current co-leader of the X-Men, Jean Grey can always be found on the frontlines of mutantkind’s greatest battles, ready and willing to use her omega-level gifts against any threat to her people.
· Destiny – The recently resurrected former X-Men foe now rules the mutant nation of Krakoa as part of the Quiet Council. Said to be mutantkind’s most powerful clairvoyant, she may know more about the war to come than anyone else…
