When the 50-page Marvel Legacy #1 was announced, the original creative team comprised of current Thor writer Jason Aaron and artists Esad Ribic. It looks like Ribic won't be alone, as the company has announced 10 more artists for the book, making it a total of 11.

According to Newsarama, the following artists have been added to the massive one-shot: Steve McNiven, Russell Dauterman, Chris Samnee, Alex Maleev, Stuart Immonen, Pepe Larraz, Jim Cheung, Daniel Acuna, Greg Land, and Ed McGuinness. These are some of Marvel's biggest and best talents, which should make the comic a visual feast for the eyes.


Steve McNiven is most well-known for his work on Civil War, and also drew the first issue of Secret Empire. Russell Dauterman is no stranger to working with writer Jason Aaron, since he currently illustrates Jane Foster's adventures as Thor. Chris Samnee will be providing interiors for the upcoming Captain America #695 with Mark Waid, who he previously worked with on Daredevil and Black Widow. Alex Maleev last worked on Infamous Iron Man with Brian Michael Bendis. Stuart Immonen has drawn some of Marvel's best books, including Star Wars and Amazing Spider-Man.

Lastly, Ed McGuiness was last seen drawing the critically acclaimed Spider-Man/Deadpool, written by Joe Kelly.

Marvel's Senior VP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort had this to say about the additional artists:

"Because the events of Marvel Legacy #1 impact on so many corners of the Marvel Universe and reflect the upcoming storylines in so many of our titles, it only made sense to call on the artists most associated with those titles to cement the connection."

Future storylines aside, the upcoming one-shot will also introduce the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C. lead by the All-Father himself Odin. He will be joined by the older iterations of Black Panther, Iron Fist, Ghost Rider, Phoenix and Starbrand, along with the original Sorcerer Supreme Agamoto.
