Bendis, Brevoort on Marvel’s Secret Invasion
Over at IGN.com, Marvel scribe Brian Bendis and editor Tom Brevoort discuss the House of Ideas’ plans for ’08, including the "trust us, it’s bigger than the last event" Secret Invasion storyline set to rock the Marvel Universe in a few months.
If you believe the hype, the real-world frights of Joe McCarthy’s hunt for Closet Communists will pale in comparison to the terror of Secret Skulls in the Marvel U. But just in case you need a little more convincing, the duo provided some covers from the eight-issue miniseries that forms the foundation of the storyline. The covers include an occasional homage to well-known Avengers issues, featuring green-chinned dopplegangers of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Bendis: It’s definitely the biggest thing I’ve ever written in scope, but if you include the Avengers tie-ins as part of the story (and I do –laughs- ) its also the biggest story I’ve ever written period. It is the same size as Civil War as far as ramifications and amount of characters involved, but it’s a different animal in every other sense. It’s a different type of genre and it’s something we’ve been building to over years.
