FIRST LOOK: Marvel reveals Avengers: No More Bullying #1

October 27th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Following the attention of Marvel’s anti-bullying variant covers, Marvel is proud to combat the growing epidemic of bullying with an all-new one-shot comic book, Avengers: No More Bullying #1. Featuring original stories by fan-favorite author Gerry Duggan (Deadpool, Nova), rising star Sean Ryan (Uncanny X-Men and Iron Man Specials) and Jody Houser in her first-ever Marvel story! With artwork by Carlo Barberi (Thunderbolts) and Tana Ford (New Warriors) and Marcio Takara (Captain Marvel), and covers by Paul Renaud featuring Spider-Man and Pascal Campion featuring The Avengers.

In Avengers: No More Bullying, the Earth’s mightiest heroes, The Avengers, have a new and vital mission – to make bullying a thing of the past! Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Captain Marvel, and more have always stood up for those who cannot stand up for themselves, but this time they’re in for a bombastic adventure of the highest order! Featuring surprise guest stars from across the Marvel Universe including Spider-Man and The Guardians of the Galaxy!

“From Peter Parker, Midtown High’s only professional wallflower, to the ever-misunderstood Kamala Khan, Marvel has a proud history of working to raise awareness about bullying and representing its victims as much as possible,” says series editor Devin Lewis. “Bullying is a problem that can affect everyone in a community, and it’s up to that very community to come together to combat it, and, with this issue, Marvel’s Avengers, Spider-Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy are joining the fight! I know how comic books can help ease that feeling of isolation, and I couldn’t be more proud or excited about the talent we’ve pulled together for this project!”

Avengers: No More Bullying #1 will be available in January within local comic book retailers and digitally through and the Marvel Comics App.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
