After spending this year celebrating 80 years for their company, in all its forms, Marvel Comics is going to end the year by celebrating 80 years from now. That’s right, straight out of the 90s, Marvel is returning to the far-flung (but not quite as far) future that is 2099.
Previously the publisher showcased a series of one-shots that begin in November with a 2099 Alpha #1 by Nick Spencer & Viktor Bogdonovic followed by Gerry Duggan and Roge Antonio’s Conan 2099 #1, Punisher 2099 #1 by Lonnie Nadler & Zac Thompson & Matt Horak, and Fantastic Four 2099 #1 by Karla Pacheco & Steven Cummings. Now Marvel has dropped news about the next group of one-shots ready to drop this December.
First up is Doom 2099 #1 coming from Chip Zdarsky & Marco Castiello. Zdarsky said: “I loved the original DOOM 2099, so this is a total dream project, getting to help reinvent the world. In our one-shot we do our best to really hold onto the spirit of the original, of Victor Von Doom starting from the bottom, while giving it some new twists, like his astounding 2099 hip hop career.”
Sticking with Spider-Man and webs, Nick Spencer will join Jose Carlos Silva for Spider-Man 2099 #1.
Next is Ghost Rider 2099 #1 from Ed Brisson & Damian Couceiro. Brisson said: “In GHOST RIDER 2099, we reimagine the origin of Ghost Rider that pays homage to the ’90s series, but still pushes the character in a new and exciting direction. Lots of cameos for sharp-eyed readers!”
Then comes Venom 2099 #1 from Jody Houser and Francesco Mobili.
Lastly Spencer will cap the event off alongside Gerardo Sandoval with 2099 Omega #1.
Check out all the 2099 books across November & December.
