Meet Marvel’s All-New Young Guns

All-New Young Guns SpecialEvery few years or so Marvel Comics likes to put a big spotlight on their bullpen of up-and-coming art talent they’ve dubbed The Young Guns. Former Young Guns include artists like Jim Cheung, Olivier Coipel, David Finch, and Steve McNiven, and this year Marvel has put another group of hot, young talent on some of the publisher’s best titles. What better way to showcase these artists then showing off their stuff? Here’s a rundown on these hot, young artists, where you can find current work, and my favorite work from each.

Jules: Real Heroes #3

Made famous as the original Ultimate artist, Bryan Hitch is now writing and penciling this title. Imagine Galaxy Quest with superheroes! The stars of the Olympians, after the screening of their second film, are transported to another dimension where the heroes they play on film are real. And since the real Olympians have been murdered they have to pretend to be them until the can help to achieve peace. The first two issues are absolutely spectacular looking, Hitch’s designs are stellar, and with his honest story telling this title has been a solid read. I can’t wait to pick this one up.

Real Heroes 3

REAL HEROES #3
story / art / cover: BRYAN HITCH

Lost and alone in a world they only knew as fiction, the cast of The Olympians movies are beginning to realize things aren’t easy when fantasy is made reality. The dangers are all too real and it might mean their deaths when Brainchild and Brute come to defeat the world’s greatest heroes.

Taylor: New Avengers #19

The current story arch of New Avengers crosses an important threshold this week as our protagonists are finally forced to face a team of genuine heroes, with both groups’ worlds hanging in the balance. This book has been skating around the dilemma of making an impossible choice for a long time; will the MU’s defenders finally be forced to do the unthinkable? Hopefully, we’re about to find out.

Christian: Detective Comics #32

There’s lots of Bat-goodness hitting the DC side of new comic shelves this week, and Batman Eternal, BatgirlBirds of Prey, and the rest should be good, but I just can’t wait for the amazing art and surprisingly great story Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato are gifting readers within the pages of Detective Comics #32. A new drug has hit the streets of Gotham, and a new villain for Batman to deal with along with it.

Gaumer: Figment #1

Yeah, Figment #1. I’m not a huge fan of the character, or the idea of Marvel even doing a Disney book like this, but I’m looking forward to Figment #1 for one reason and one reason only: Jim Zub. I’m a big fan of his work on the zany fantasy Skullkickers, a book that has a unique style all its very own, and I can’t wait to see what he brings as he takes on a Marvel title. Yeah, it may be a book starring an obscure Disney character, but Zub is definitely a writer to keep an eye on.
