FUSION #1

Collision: Cyberforce/Hunter-Killer/Avengers/Thunderbolts #1 (of 3)
(W) Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning (A) Tyler Kirkham (Cov) Mike Choi & Sonia Oback, Stjepan Sejic
The mother of all Top Cow/Marvel crossovers debuts in May! Top Cow's two covert tech teams collide with Marvel's Initiative enforcers, the Mighty Avengers and the Thunderbolts.
When a rapid and unregistered Ripclaw starts tearing through a small Northeast town, the Mighty Avengers move in to stop him. When the feral hero escapes, they're drawn into an inevitable conflict with Cyberforce. A crossover event too massive to be contained in a single issue brought to you by the writing team of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (Guardians of the Galaxy, Nova) and Top Cow favorite artist Tyler Kirkham (Ultimate Fantastic Four, Broken Trinity: Aftermath).
