Marvel Comics has announced two Empyre one-shot -- Empyre #0: Avengers and Empyre #0: Fantastic Four.

This pair of stories will be written by the architects of Empyre, Al Ewing and Dan Slott with art by Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva! Fresh off their work on House of X and Powers of X, these two superstar artists will once again complement each other's skills in mirroring stories.

In Ewing and Larraz's Empyre #0: Avengers, old allies have returned and the Avengers are called to the new Green Area of the Moon to help face a terrible enemy.

And in Slott and Silvafs Empyre #0: Fantastic Four, the Fantastic Four will witness the final conflict of the Kree/Skrull War and meet a long hidden Elder of the Universe... the mysterious Profiteer.

"Empyre starts with a bang - the Avengers and the Fantastic Four meeting a threat from two sides, with two different strategies - and these #0 issues will let set readers up to see how they got there," Ewing said. "As the Avengers meet with old friends, and the Fantastic Four run into some brand new ones, both teams face some stark choices and a test of their character as a team. It's the best way to get inside the heads of the Avengers and the Fantastic Four before the main action begins."

AMC has announced Sunday, April 12 as the premiere date for The Walking Dead: World Beyond.

The show will debut at 10 p.m. following The Walking Dead Season 10 finale. Subsequent episodes will air Sundays at 9 p.m.

Here's how AMC describes the episode:

"The Walking Dead: World Beyond expands the universe of The Walking Dead, delving into a new mythology and story that follows the first generation raised in a surviving civilization of the post-apocalyptic world. Two sisters along with two friends leave a place of safety and comfort to brave dangers, known and unknown, living and undead on an important quest. Pursued by those who wish to protect them and those who wish to harm them, a tale of growing up and transformation unfurls across dangerous terrain, challenging everything they know about the world, themselves and each other. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. But all of them will find the truths they seek."
