First glimpse of Marvel UK's return in Revolutionary War.

So, as most of you are probably aware by now, the many properties of Marvel UK are going to be making a US market comeback this coming January, in a series named 'Revolutionary War' to be written by Andy Lanning and Alan Cowsill.

If not? Well, now you do.

We'd heard a little about what it might entail, and that a number of artists would be attached to the series, but so far we'd not actually *seen* anything from it. Well, it is only September.

But last night Stephen Wacker, Marvel editor and editor for the series, posted the following little glimpse on Twitter...

Bless you, Mr Wacker. And yes, it really IS happening. It certainly looks like prospective cover art, and while I cannot say for certain who is responsible for it the art style certainly looks like it might be by Mark Brooks.
Let's have closer look shall we...
Well, I think we can certainly say, with little question, that we're looking at Death's Head II (Minion), in the centre there. And to the right of him are the unmistakable 'Hot-Knives' of Pete Wisdom.
I feel pretty sure that bottom left is Dark Angel's mask and hair. But what else?
Somebody in armour top left? Knights of Pendragon? Who does that purple fabric belong to?
May the speculation commence!
Either way it's a really nice image. And if this is the kind of production values we might be looking at for Revolutionary War I really hope it grabs people's attention.
Let me know what you think, guys. I'm really psyched for this series. Spread the word.

  1. Definitely Mark Brooks. Liam Sharp told me he's onboard to do a cover for the series too :)
