RECOMMENDED READING: THE DEFENDERS #1...


Image copyright MARVEL COMICS

The cover is misleading because none of these characters
actually appear inside (that I can see), but it's nice to see yet
another JACK KIRBY image on a contemporary comic.  I've
read it and enjoyed it, and I'm betting you'll enjoy it too.  So
get yourself around to your local FORBIDDEN PLANET
store and pick up a copy for yourself today.

The Defenders ??? Those are The Eternals !!

Who DEFEND the Earth. Maybe it's just meant to be symbolic, or it's just an excuse to have a Kirby cover. Or maybe they're going to pop up in the series. I don't know.

Is that who they are? I clicked on here and thought, "Who the feck are they?"!
I suspect that this cover is actually a mistake!?

Russell said...

The Kirby variants don't reflect what's in the comic but show seldom seen images . It's to do with the 100th anniversary. They do look very nice it must be said.

Kid said...

I'd be surprised if a mistake of this magnitude could ever slip through the process, JP, so it's clearly meant to be as it is. However, they'll be some reason for it.

Ta, Russell, that's what I suspected. JP will be glad of that because he likes to know what's what.

John Pitt said...

Yep, cheers, Russell, I must say I did wonder how COULD they make a mistake that big, so it's good to know that they didn't!

Kid said...

Yup, you can sleep easy now, JP. Everything is as it should be. (As far as that cover goes anyway.)

One wonders why they didn't use of the actual Defenders. honestly though I don't know which Defenders it is now.

Kid said...

Luke Cage, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist. Yeah. Go figure. Interesting though.

B Smith said...

Defenders, Eternals, yeah yeah yeah....sack the colourist! What a dark, muddy example of everything that's wrong with digital colouring.

russell said...

All the other ( main ) covers feature the Defenders. It's to tie in with the new new TV series in August.

Kid said...

Might be your screen, BS - it looks fine on mine.

There you go, peeps - Russell has explained the situation. If you buy the mag, you don't need to get the one with this cover.
