How do you assemble Avengers in a world that doesn’t want them? PLUS: A behind-the-scenes look at the making of this issue!
Avengers: Twilight #1 is a stunning debut issue that explores a dystopian future where Captain America has retired and the Avengers are disbanded. The story is written by Chip Zdarsky, who is no stranger to writing alternate realities and dark twists on beloved characters. He previously wrote Justice League: Last Ride for DC Comics, which was a critically acclaimed miniseries that showed the aftermath of a tragic event that tore apart the Justice League. Zdarsky also has a knack for writing humorous and heartfelt dialogue, which he showcases in this issue as well.
The art is done by Daniel Acuña, who is a veteran artist who has worked on many Marvel titles, such as Black Panther, Captain America: Sam Wilson, and Uncanny Avengers. His style is realistic and detailed, with vibrant colors and dynamic layouts. He captures the contrast between the shiny and oppressive new world and the gritty and nostalgic old one. He also draws the characters with expressive faces and body language, conveying their emotions and personalities.
With a cover by the legendary painter Alex Ross, who has created iconic covers for both Marvel and DC Comics. His cover for Avengers: Twilight #1 is a homage to his own work on Kingdom Come, a classic DC miniseries that depicted a grim future where the heroes had lost their way. Ross’s cover shows a weary and aged Steve Rogers, holding his shield and helmet, surrounded by the silhouettes of his former teammates. It is a powerful and poignant image that sets the tone for the story.
