At Marvel Comics'
"Next Big Thing" panel at FanExpo Canada over the weekend, the publisher released a generous amount of new artwork from its previously announced "Season One" line of graphic novels
, which are aimed at new readers and depict early adventures of popular Marvel superheroes including Daredevil, X-Men, Fantastic Four and Spider-Man. As Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort explained in an interview with USA Today
, the Season One initiative will not seek to reconfigure the characters in any way along the lines of DC's "The New 52" relaunch, but rather provide a more modern aesthetic for the characters' origins.
Daredevil: Season One will come courtesy of writer Antony Johnston and artist Wellinton Alves; Fantastic Four: Season One is by written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and drawn by David Marquez; Spider-Man: Season One is in progress with writer Cullen Bunn and artist Neil Edwards; and X-Men: Season One will feature the work of Dennis Hopeless and Jamie McKelvie. All covers are by Julian Totino, and you can see those and loads of preview art below.
