Fusion #1 – Top Cow/Marvel

Fusion #1 (of 3)
Starring Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer/Avengers/Thunderbolts

(W) Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning (A) Tyler Kirkham (Cov) Mike Choi & Sonia Oback

The mother of all Top Cow/Marvel crossovers debuts in May! Top Cow’s two covert tech teams collide with Marvel’s Initiative enforcers, the Mighty Avengers and the Thunderbolts.
When a rapid and unregistered Ripclaw starts tearing through a small Northeast town, the Mighty Avengers move in to stop him. When the feral hero escapes, they’re drawn into an inevitable conflict with Cyberforce. A crossover event too massive to be contained in a single issue brought to you by the writing team of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova) and Top Cow favorite artist Tyler Kirkham (Ultimate Fantastic Four, Broken Trinity: Aftermath).

This looks great. The story takes place before the end of Secret Invasion (noticable by the inclusion of The Wasp). The story opens with The Avengers fighting a bad ass that looks liek a cross between Ripclaw and Wendigo. This opening issue has all four teams and sets up what looks to be like a battle royal of epic proportions. Action packed and enopugh intrigue to make me want tohe next issue now.
Wonderful art by Tyler Kirkman. He has a great knack for fight scenes.
Dan Abbot and Andy Lanning have a real feel for all the various characters and are really setting up what looks to be a terrific story.

FUSION #1 hits the stores next Wenesday. And good to their promise, Top Cow is only charging 2.99 for this action packed 32 pages of great comics reading.
