What happens when you get to play with the toys and try to go with EPIC, while still holding true (but not following) continuity. We get to find out.

Aint It Cool News has the interview with Joe Casey and Tom Brennan about their upcoming Marvel project "Vengeance".

From the article:

MATT ADLER (MA): To begin, how would you sum up the central premise of VENGEANCE?

JOE CASEY (JC): Funny you should ask that, because I’ve been angling to do a mainstream Marvel book that really had no “central premise” for a change. I think superhero comic books get too caught up in all that literary shit. Do you think Stan and Jack and Steve were sitting around thinking about “central premises” in 1962? Hell, no! They were just thinking up cool shit and putting it out. Well, that’s exactly what we’re doing. Make mine Marvel!

MA: How was the idea for the series developed?

JC: Very oddly. It morphed a few times before it got to where it’s at now. Not to mention, a story this big, this sprawling, this epic…it tends to develop even as it’s moving along. There’s a bit in issue #2 that I just wrote that I had no idea would be there. But, in the context of this series, it made perfect sense to go that way. I’ll give you a hint… it involves Bullseye and Lady Bullseye and it’s a love scene. And it ain’t a flashback. Can I get an “Awww, yeah!” up in this hothouse?!

Nice to hear creative teams "swinging for the rafters" with odd characters.

And now to overload you with art from the mini-series.

First, the widescreen editions.

I'll pic it up in trades, but I do love the art.

edit: And is it me or is Doom trying out for a Lady Gaga video?

I'm intrigued. It's cool to see the Young Masters again, and the Joaquin Pennyworth Nighthawk, and what looks like Stacy X. And one of those new characters looks like the love child between Cap and Quicksilver.

But I'm hesitant because of something Casey revealed in an interview
he did with CBR yesterday

For example: one thing we've decided about the new character, Miss America Chavez, is that she doesn't wear underwear. Believe it or not, that was an important creative decision. I think it says something about her personality that she deliberately goes out into the field sans underwear. You can see it in the art. How's that for selling it?

I'm still not sure what to think about that.

That's funny, given the design above clearly has straps for a thong.
