The Hellfire Gala Takes Over The Marvel Universe In June
by Tony Thornley
Last year’s Hellfire Gala was a massive hit. This June the party to end all parties returns and it’s going to draw in the rest of the Marvel Universe.
The Gala this year will be contained to a massive 72 page X-Men The Hellfire Gala one-shot by Gerry Duggan, Russell Dauterman, Matteo Lolli, C.F. Villa, and Kris Anka. It promises to be an event as big as last year’s Gala, which considering how the X-Men terraformed a planet, is a tall order.
And again like last year, Dauterman is going to be taking the lead in designing the looks alongside a massive line-up of incredible talent. It’s also going to include looks for the Avengers, Spider-Man and more! The artist line-up announced so far includes Carmen Carnero, Iban Coello, Chris Bachalo, Jen Bartel, Mateus Manhanini, Mahmud Asrar, Miguel Mercado, Meghan Hetrick, InHyuk Lee, and Eric D’Urso. That includes some incredible variant covers depicting this incredible fashion.
“I’m thrilled to be back designing costumes for the mutants!” Dauterman said. “And this year we’re expanding to include more of the Marvel Universe — I jumped at the chance to design one of my favorite characters, the Scarlet Witch! I’m lucky to be in such stellar company, surrounded by the other artists working on this project. I’ve been excited every time new art shows up in my inbox, and can’t wait for everyone to see!”
