Marvel First Look: DEFENDERS #4

Marvel has just made available the cover and first three unlettered pages from March 7's The Defenders #4. Written by Fear Itself mastermind Matt Fraction and featuring art by Michael Lark and a cover by superstar artist Terry Dodson, The Defenders has been a runaway success for Marvel, topping the company's sales in December and garnering mostly glowing reviews. The issue seems to focus squarely on Doctor Strange, with the Sorcerer Supreme being featured not just on the cover but also in Marvel's teaser text, which describes the issue as follows:
