Marvel Comics has officially announced their first event for 2014.
Entitled Original Sin, the series will begin in April and will be helmed by Jason Aaron with art by Mike Deodato Jr.
Speaking with USA Today, Aaron laid out the basic components and characters which will comprise the core elements of the story: “Former S.H.I.E.L.D. super-spy Nick Fury is ‘the grizzled Marvel superhero version of an old homicide detective’ who assembles Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and others for the main manhunt, Aaron says. Meanwhile, another group including the Punisher, Doctor Strange, Emma Frost, Ant-Man and Black Panther conducts its own investigation.”
Original Sin will be an eight-issue mini which will ship bi-monthly.
