As Marvel Comics continues its trek through the Marvel NOW! publishing initiative, there's one title that fans have been asking about since Free Comic Book Day 2012: "Age of Ultron." Written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Bryan Hitch, "Age of Ultron" reintroduces the Avengers' greatest foe to the Marvel U and the publisher has released a new look at Hitch's interior art.

In addition to the preview, Marvel has debuted the logo for "Age of Ultron," announcing that every regular cover for the first issue will feature a foil treatment and design at no extra cost.

"Literally not a day has gone by over the past year and a half without people asking me on Twitter where this was," series writer Brian Bendis said in 2012. "I know that people are looking forward to this, so to finally debut it, and for it to be – I imagine – better than people thought it would be is great...it takes one of Marvel's classic villains to a level we've never seen him before, and it pushed our Marvel heroes to a place they've never been before."

Check out Hitch's Art and the solicitation info below.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at the explosive first issue of Age Of Ultron #1! This March, enter the darkest days of the Marvel Universe as it’s heroes fight for from the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis (All New X-Men, Avengers VS. X-Men) and Bryan Hitch (Ultimates, Fantastic Four). Evil has triumphed over good and leading this new age is none other than Ultron, the deadly sentient robot created by founding Avenger Hank Pym who turned on his creator to achieve his twisted  objective…the utter destruction of humanity. Now, it’s up to the few remaining heroes to band together and find any way to topple their new monarch. Can Wolverine, Emma Frost, Invisible Woman, Taskmaster, Beast, She-Hulk, Luke Cage, Spider-Man, and Moon Knight turn the tide?
