Marvel has released teasers for two mysterious Civil War II tie-in one-shots.
Civil War II: The Fallen #1 and Civil War II: The Accused #1 will both ship in August, and are apparently too juice for anything but a bloody, "classified" teaser image.
"Like the other tie-ins that we're doing, you can just read the core series and be fine," editor Tom Brevoort offers to Marvel.com."But for greater insight and greater nuance, these one-shots will help to flesh out some of the most important parts of the story."
"In one instance, [a creator has] a close familiarity with a key character in question," he teases. "In the other, a specialty related to the story in that one-shot."
We do know that Civil War II will feature the death of a Marvel character, so perhaps "The Fallen" is that character, and the "The Accused" is the presumed killer. We'll have to wait and see.
Civil War II #1 kicks off this May. Check out the Free Comic Book Day prologue on Free Comic Book Day, May 7.
