Marvel Announces Marvels: Eye of The Camera Black & White Variants!


Marvel is pleased to announce that the hotly anticipated Marvels: Eye of The Camera limited series will now be shipping with black & white variant editions! Award-winning Marvels scribe Kurt Busiek joins forces with rising star artist Jan Anacleto for a stunning new look at the Marvel Universe! Famed news photographer Phil Sheldon bears witness to some of the most critical moments in Marvel Universe history, but it’s not just heroes and villains rocking his life-something close to home will leave him changed forever!


"Jay produced all of the artwork for MARVELS: EYE OF THE CAMERA in greytone as a natural part of his process, and it was all so lovely and so complete unto itself that we wanted to show it off in its natural state, before it was painted up," said Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. "One look at any of the greytone pages will tell you why."


Following in the tradition of red-hot Marvel black & white editions of Punisher War Journal, Ultimates, Wolverine and more, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Marvels: Eye of The Camera #1 (of 6) Black & White Edition!


The long-awaited sequel to Marvels is here and now available in both full color and black & white editions! No Marvel fan can afford to miss Marvels: Eye of The Camera #1 (of 6)!
