Check it out – EXCLUSIVE artwork from GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY AND X-MEN: BLACK VORTEX!

We’ve got some of the best artists around doing stellar work in this event – if you’re an art lover, then BLACK VORTEX is a dream come true.

THE BLACK VORTEX is about an ancient artifact with the ability to augment the power of any individual to cosmic levels…at a price. And in the Marvel Universe, an object like this becomes a flashpoint for all sorts of greed and longing and destruction. 

You can start to see the effects above…

  • Ed McGuinness from BLACK VORTEX: ALPHA (chapter 1)
  • Kris Anka from BLACK VORTEX: ALPHA (chapter 1)
  • Valerio Schiti from GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY issue 24 (chapter 2)
  • Paco Medina from THE LEGENDARY STAR-LORD issue 9 (chapter 3)

More art coming later today…we’ve only scratched the surface…

Ayyyy I’m Sam Humphries and I’m taking over the Tumblr Comics channel today! Stay tuned to comics.tumblr.com for more all day long.

IT’S A TUMBLR TAKEOVER!

TODAY, COMICS.TUMBLR.COM BELONGS TO SHUMPHRIES!

YO EVERYBODY! I am Sam Humphries, and I write comic books and video games and impersonate Prince. This week is the launch of the epic Marvel cosmic event I am spearheading: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY AND X-MEN: BLACK VORTEX!

To celebrate, I am taking over the Tumblr Comics channel all day today! I’ll be posting some exclusive Marvel Comics artwork, as well as reblogging rad stuff by rad comics people I love.

Let’s get the PR out of the way – BLACK VORTEX: ALPHA is “the first chapter in an epic, out of this world crossover through Guardians of the Galaxy, All-New X-Men, Legendary Star-Lord, Cyclops, Captain Marvel, Nova and Guardians Team-Up! From superstar creators Sam Humphries (samhumphries), Ed McGuinness and Kris Anka (kristaferanka) comes the opening salvo in an epic cosmic war.” 

So basically BLACK VORTEX is all your favorite Guardians and X-Men characters together in one spectacular story that you will never see in any movie, because…well, they could never afford all the actors. Check out the preview above! It’s out Wednesday in stores and online.

I’ve been on Tumblr for years (hey, go ahead and follow me now, I know you’re down) and I’m psyched to bring you some of my favorite Tumblr comic gems all day today.

I’ll be back on Thursday for a special Q+A featuring YOUR questions, inappropriate or otherwise. So get your queries in right now!

ARE YOU READY TUMBLR?? LET’S DO THIS! THE TAKEOVER IS HERE!!!
