Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev Launch Event Leviathan at DC in June

Posted by March 15, 2019 Comment

DC Comics has revealed its June solicitations, and while we work on getting those posted in full, we thought we’d take a moment to point out that “The Great One” Brian Bendis and superstar artist Alex Maleev will be launching their first DC super-mega-crossover event in June, called Event Leviathan. Bendis has been building the Leviathan story for months, with Bleeding Cool reporting back in September that he would write a Leviathan standalone series and continuing to report on the coming event ahead of the curve as usual. Now we finally have the official announcement and title. And no, that’s not a description of an event called Leviathan. The actual super-mega-crossover event is actually called Event Leviathan.

How meta. Will Marvel retitle War of the Realms as Marvel Universe Will Never Be the Same After War of the Realms in response?

In any case, check out the solicit for the main event book:

EVENT LEVIATHAN #1
written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
art and cover by ALEX MALEEV
variant cover by KENNETH ROCAFORT
The groundbreaking and always-inventive team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev (Jinxworld’s SCARLET, Marvel’s Daredevil) reunite on a mystery thriller that stretches across the DC Universe and touches every character from Batman to Superman to the Question to Talia al Ghul. With startling ease, a newly dangerous and aggressive Leviathan wipes out all its competition and now turns its sights to molding the world into its vision of order. Can the new threat’s growth be stopped…and who’s guiding its new agents of chaos?

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
