An all-new ongoing series starring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes has just dropped on Marvel Unlimited!

New to Marvel’s exclusive Infinity Comics lineup, AVENGERS UNITED #1 released today during New York Comic Con’s Avengers Assemble: A This Week in Marvel Special Event! Host Ryan Penagos, VP & Creative Executive at Marvel, was joined by Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, and writers Jed MacKay (AVENGERS) and Al Ewing (AVENGERS INC.) in a live edition of the This Week in Marvel podcast. Up for discussion was Marvel’s mightiest line of comics: the Avengers! 

The latest from Marvel’s Infinity Comics, AVENGERS UNITED will release new issues each Thursday on Marvel Unlimited, with issue #1 kicking off an epic 25-issue arc. And in its opening chapters by Derek Landy, Marcio Fiorito, and Erick Arciniega, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes assemble in response to an impending interstellar disaster!

“There is a certain immediacy that you can get with this kind of digital comic—where it’s one panel at a time and you're scrolling for the next reveal or surprise—that is tremendous fun to play with,” reveals series writer Landy. “Luckily, I've been partnered with [artist] Marcio, who delivers that cohesion and that rhythm in effortless and stylish fashion.”

“I love Derek's way of telling a story,” adds Fiorito of their collaboration. “For an artist, it's gratifying to be able to build on the story, and Derek really allows me to do that. Also, Derek writes in a way that alternates between big action scenes and cool character moments. What more could an artist want?”

The opening arc of AVENGERS UNITED will also introduce a brand-new alien race to the Marvel Universe: the Ghesh.

“The Ghesh are a technologically advanced race who have quietly, and without incident, spread their influence throughout their corner of the galaxy,” teases Landy of his opening arc. “They're the kind of aliens you'd want to make first contact with, quite honestly. But they have a moon, Yun-To, on which lies their first-ever colony, and relations between the two cultures have been strained as of late.”

“Let’s just say that this time the Avengers have no idea what's coming their way,” says Fiorito. “The Ghesh definitely are much more than meets the eye!”

Grab an exclusive first look at AVENGERS UNITED #1 below, then read new chapters of the “Death from Above” arc each Thursday on Marvel Unlimited.
