The trend of adult coloring books has been picking up steam over the last year or so and I was shocked that comic companies had not embraced this new medium but that all changed today when Marvel unveiled their first three adult coloring books. The first title hitting stores will be a book with art from Age of Ultron which will be in stores this fall. Skottie Young’s Little Marvel and the Civil War coloring book will hit retailers in 2016. The books are filled with line art from some of Marvel’s most notable artists including Carlos Pacheco, Bryan Hitch and many more. Grab your crayons, colored pencils, and markers and add some color to Marvel Universe!
