Marvel has announced their 2011 crossover and it’s titled “Fear Itself”. The reveal comes after a couple weeks of “What do you fear” teaser images, and the main thing will kick off with a prelude comic written by Ed Brubaker and the whole thing will be anchored by a seven issue mini-series. Marvel claims to have been setting this whole thing up for some time, even as far back as two years ago.
After all the dark storylines Marvel has been doing lately, despite them dipping their toes into the “Heroic Age”, this one doesn’t come as too much of a surprise. After all, DC’s “Blackest Night” was one of the more popular recent crossovers, so you can’t fault Marvel for wanting one of those too.
