Although the end is nigh for The Immortal Hulk, ace scribe Al Ewing isn't resting on his laurels, instead he is turning his attention to Marvel's infamous 'non-team' The Defenders for a five-issue mini-series, featuring artwork by Javier Rodríguez.
“When existence itself faces extraordinary threats, it needs an extraordinary defense! That’s when you call…the Defenders!
Doctor Strange and the Masked Raider take a non-team of Marvel’s weirdest, wildest heroes on a mission that will uncover the hidden architecture of reality itself!
This cosmos was not the first to exist…but if the Defenders can’t track Marvel’s oldest villain through the deepest trenches of time — it might be the last!”As well as Doctor Strange and the Masked Raider, this latest iteration of The Defenders also includes Silver Surfer, Red Harpy, and Cloud.
The first issue is scheduled to arrive on August 11.
