LOS ANGELES -- Maybe doing those Daredevil covers recently rubbed off. Tommy Lee Edwards is somewhat of an artist without fear these days.

Signing a three-year exclusive with Marvel Comics, Edwards dives into his first big project with the publisher that he doesn't entirely feel comfortable with: Bullet Points, a five-issue mini-series that features loads and loads of Marvel super-heroes.

"I'm a little bit out of my element," Edwards admitted last weekend at Wizard World Los Angeles, where the project was announced by Marvel. "I'm actually more comfortable with a book like The Question, that I just did with Rick Veitch. I'm more at home there, where it's just a hat and a coat.

"But it's nice to know I have that challenge."

Bullet Points -- written by J. Michael Straczynski -- is a "What If?" type of story in which an assassination during World War II causes a ripple effect throughout the Marvel Universe. It's targeted to launch this summer.

"It alters the characters and how we think of them," Edwards said. "It spans 40 years. The five issues deal with everybody from Captain America to Iron Man to the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange.

"It's got pretty much everybody in it. Even Galactus and the Silver Surfer show up."

"It's how one bullet can change the course of heroes," Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada said. "They don't quite become what you think they will become."

Edwards will be penciling, inking and color the series.

Bullet Points follows Edwards' recent Marvel work including four Daredevil covers and a What If: Daredevil one-shot. Edwards said he's been ask to additonal DD covers.

"Tommy's been knockin' our socks off in so many different mediums," Quesada said. "Seems everywhere I turn, I see his gorgeous art."

Edwards' exclusive with Marvel is for comic books only. He remains free to work for anyone as an illustrator in the realms of movies, children's books, animation and computer games.

One of those projects is licensing artwork and children's books based on the upcoming film Superman Returns; Edwards did similar work for Batman Begins.

Edwards, who visited the set in Australia, was a little apprehensive at first about Brandon Routh playing the role.

"But once you see him in the dailies -- both as Clark and as Superman -- you see how well-acted and well-directed it is," Edwards said.
