“We’re excited to return to SXSW as we take the Marvel ReEvolution to the next level with a quintet of announcements this year, leading us into the future of digital publishing,” said Dan Buckley, Publisher & President of the Print, Animation & Digital Divisions, Marvel Worldwide, Inc. “We’re big believers that we can combine the best of print and digital media to bring fans the ultimate comic book experience—that’s the heart of the Marvel ReEvolution. And if you’re at SXSW Interactive this year, you’ll be the first to find out just how Marvel’s changing everything you thought you knew possible about comics, forever.”

"The strength of Marvel's characters and their stories make for a perfect convergence with SXSW Gaming Expo's gaming, geek and comic book culture. We're looking forward to a bigger presence and more announcements from the GEEK stage this year," said Matthew Crump, SXSW Gaming Expo Event Coordinator.
After the Marvel: House of Ideas panel concludes, fans in attendance will receive a limited edition AGE OF ULTRON #1 SXSW Variant Cover (while supplies last) and a chance to have it signed by Alonso in a special Marvel signing session.
“Marvel’s fans are the best in the world—bar none—and we can wait to see them turn out in huge numbers once more at SXSW” said Alonso. “Last year Marvel brought you an all new digital format with Infinite Comics and a new way to experience comics with Marvel AR—and this year we’ve planned even bigger surprises!”
