'Contagion' #2 Calls for Marvel's Street-Level Heroes
Are Luke Cage and Iron Fist the men who can stop Marvel's newest menace?
CONTAGION, the upcoming miniseries written by Ed Brisson with art by a team of artists -- Roge Antonio, Stephen Segovia, Mack Chater, Damian Couciero, and Adam Gorham, and covers by Juan Jose Ryp -- is almost here! Last week, we showed you a preview of what was inside issue #1, and now, see a preview of CONTAGION #2, on sale Wednesday, October 9! From the looks of it, the infectious threat that has landed in the streets of New York City shows no signs of stopping -- and in the second part of the five-part series, it looks like some Marvel heroes have already fallen victim.
The Thing was the cover boy of CONTAGION #1, and the cover of issue #2 features Iron Fist and Luke Cage. When we spoke with Brisson back in July, he emphasized that this was not a job for a super team like the Avengers. Marvel's street-level heroes were going to be the stars of this show -- but it wasn't going to be a cakewalk for them either. Brisson explained that CONTAGION would be pure horror. “When [editor] Jake Thomas hit me up in January to work on CONTAGION, he sold the series to me as a street-level horror event. Obviously, Jake knows that I'm a huge street-level guy, but he also knows that I'm a horror junkie. He and I have talked for hours about horror films, so I think he knew it was an easy sell for me. I'm thrilled -- finally, I can put an entire lifetime of rotting my brain with horror flicks to good use."
If these preview pages are any indication, many merry members of the Marvel Universe are in serious trouble -- including some of its most beloved and powerful players.
CONTAGION #2, written by Ed Brisson with art by Roge Antonio, Stephen Segovia, Mack Chater, Damian Couciero, and Adam Gorham, and covers by Juan Jose Ryp, goes on sale Wednesday, October 9. Pre-order your copy today online or at your local comic shop!
