In their continuing efforts to hype next year’s blockbuster team-up film “The Avengers,” Marvel has attached a piece of new promo art for the film to its latest batch of upcoming comic-book announcements.

The new image, featuring painted illustrations of the “Avengers” cast in the style of previously released promo art, is attached to an upcoming collection of Marvel’s previously released movie-universe comics. Titled Road to the Avengers, the collection will include the miniseries I Am Iron Man, Iron Man Security Measures, Iron Man 2: Public Identity, Iron Man 2: Agents Of SHIELD, and Captain America: First Vengeance.

Bleeding Cool had the first look at the Road to the Avengers art, which was released to retailers with a long list of other Marvel comics scheduled to arrive on shelve sin the coming months.

Here’s the official synopsis of the book:

Gear up for the upcoming Avengers movie with these official in-movie continuity stories starring Avengers mainstays Iron Man, Captain America and the Agents S.H.I.E.L.D.! First, it’s an expanded re-imagining of the original Iron Man, featuring bonus scenes not in the movie! Then, it’s an all-new Iron Man adventure! What happened between the events of Iron Man and Iron Man 2? How did Tony Stark put a new chapter in the history books? And how did Iron Man break and rewrite all the rules? Then, it’s Black Widow, Nick Fury and Agent Coulson in espionage action! Think you know S.H.I.E.L.D.? Check out what you DIDN’T see in the movies! And finally, it’s the official comics prequel to the blockbuster Captain America! Steve Rogers is the inspiration for millions during the dark days of World War Two — but where did he get his inspiration from? How did he meet his best friend, “Bucky” Barnes? And what set him on the path to becoming the First Avenger? Experience an all-new Cap adventure on the European battlefields.

There’s no official release date for the collection listed, but the image and synopsis come from a release calendar that covers January-April of 2012, meaning the book should be on shelves before “The Avengers” hits theaters that May.

The new “Avengers” art is the latest in along line of images arriving online from the much-anticipated film, though it’s one of the few with any official approval from the Marvel team. Over the last few weeks, photos from the Cleveland set of the film have been finding their way online on an almost daily basis — including a few images that could reveal some major plot points of the film.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
