While San Diego Comic-Con is known as a convention where tons of news is dropped, other conventions including New York Comic Con over the years have become pretty much equal in this respect. With it being their hometown convention, Marvel Comics dropped a lot of new comic announcements during their Saturday panel.
One of the big reveals during the panel led by Editor-In-Chief C.B. Cebulski centered around a sequel to Marvel’s 16-part Avengers weekly series from earlier this year, Avengers: No Surrender. The new ten-part weekly story, known as Avengers: No Road Home, reunites former series writers Jim Zub, Mark Waid and Ale Ewing with art by Paco Medina and Sean Izaakse. There were little other details about the series other than it will launch in February and Zub described it as “the biggest, craziest Avengers story.”
Along with his work on Avengers: No Road Home, Zub had another big announcement in the form of his current young heroes series Champions which is primed to relaunch beginning in January with artist Steven Cummings joining the writer. Reportedly the new version of the team will be much bigger in scope than the current one.
“Why don’t I just bring every damn teen hero I can get my hands on, and make a legion of super-heroes in the Marvel Universe?” Zub said. “If you love the teen side of Marvel, if you love hopeful, exciting, epic adventure, this is the book for you.”
Lastly, but certainly not least, the publisher announced that the long talked about War of the Realms (a war that encompasses all nine realms including Asgard and Earth) from the various Thor centered books the last few years from Jason Aaron and various artists has been expanded. The war will spin out of the main Thor book and will reunite Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman and colorist Matthew Wilson for the big event series War of the Realms.
“It’s been spreading for six years in the pages of Thor, and very soon it’s going to come to the last realm standing, which is Midgard, and in particular midtown Manhattan,” the writer teased about the threat posed by dark elf Malekith. “We’ve been working on this for awhile. I’ve been building to this for six years.”
All of these books launch in 2019.
