Ok so with SDCC over, October solicitations out and this week the “preview” of Marvel NOW! Point One issue already complete; this is what we know of Marvel Comics new initiative/relaunch: Marvel NOW!
Starting October up to February Marvel will release a new #1 books (new and re-launch) that will shape the Marvel Universe after AvX (as well as giving chance to some books to end their runs in that period of time). Also all the books under this banner will have AR applications, as well it was hinted (but not confirmed as of now) that these will also bring digital codes.
So this is a list of the books (both confirmed and guesses based on stuff released from Marvel) under the NOW! banner:
Uncanny Avengers - October - Rick Remender & John Cassaday
Marvel NOW! Point One - October - Bendis, Fraction, Loeb, Spencer, Gillen, Hopeless & Allred, McGuinness, McNiven, Mckelvie, Larroca and more.
All New X-Men - November - Brian Michael Bendis & Stuart Immonen
Avengers - December - Jonathan Hickman & Jerome Opena (bi-weekly)
New Avengers - January - Jonathan Hickman & Steve Epting
Thor - Confirmed, no more info given
Captain America - Confirmed, no more info given
Iron-Man - Confirmed, no more info given
Nova - Hinted on Marvel NOW! Point One cover
Young Avengers (?) - Hinted on Marvel NOW! Point One cover
Cable - Hinted on Marvel NOW! Point One cover
Guardians of the Galaxy - Hinted on Marvel NOW! Point One cover
Ant-Man - Hinted on Marvel NOW! Point One cover
Aside from that, the following books are ending in October and thus lead us to believe they will be replaced by a similar book or get a new #1:
Captain America - Confirmed for re-launch
The Mighty Thor - Confirmed for re-launch
Incredible Hulk - No further info
Invincible Iron-Man - Confirmed for re-launch
Fantastic Four - No further info
FF - No further info
Uncanny X-Men - Confirmed to be replaced by Uncanny Avengers
New Mutants - No further info
X-Men Legacy - No further info.
And finally the following books are in their final runs yet still going pass October:
Avengers - Already confirmed for new #1
New Avengers - Already confirmed for new #1
Deadpool - Confirmed at SDCC that current writer is ending his run this year, still unconfirmed if it will be part of Marvel NOW!
Journey into Mystery - Writer ending his run soon, no confirmation if it will end up part of Marvel NOW! (unless the Kid Loki is a hint for this book)
And that’s it so far…hopefully we get more info soon as I WANT TO RE-CHECK MY PULL LIST AND PLAN AHEAD!!!!
