If the covers of issues 1 and 2 of Marvel's newest event series Original Sin are any indication, the series isn't just going to be a single whodunnit -- it's going present a whole bunch of them. It's just what happens when a murder victim was already a mystery to begin with.

The first issue's cover asks the question that's been the stated premise of the series since the Jason Aaron-written, Mike Deodato Jr.-drawn series was announced last month: "Who shot The Watcher?" The second issue raises a whole different mystery: "Who holds the eye?" If that convention holds up through all eight issues of the series, readers are about to have a whole lot of intrigue on their hands. Check out those covers by Julian Totino Tedesco, along with variants by Gabrielle Dell'otto after the jump.

The Watcher, the mysterious space-god who’s been watching us from the moon for as long as we can remember... is dead. Thus begins the greatest murder mystery in Marvel Comics history.

As Nick Fury leads the heroes of the Marvel Universe in an investigation, other forces are marshaling as well and other questions are arising. Why is Black Panther gathering a secret team of his own, including Emma Frost, the Punisher and Dr. Strange? Who is the Unseen? What was the Original Sin? What was stolen from the Watcher’s lair? And most importantly, who now holds the Marvel Universe’s darkest secrets in the palm of their hand?
