Things are about to go down on a cosmic scale at Marvel Comics once more beginning in December. Marvel previously announced a Annhilation: Scourge Alpha one-shot that kicks off their cosmic event, calling back to the Annhilation events from over a decade ago, and now Nova, Silver Surfer, Beta Ray Bill and the Fantastic Four are getting their own issues within the storyline.

As reported by Newsarama, each of the aforementioned characters/teams are getting their own one-shots in December following the Alpha issue and will be bookended by Annhilation: Scourge Omega which closed out the story.

Matthew Rosenberg is handling the writing on the Alpha & Omega issues as well as the Nova issue with artists Juanan Ramirez , Manuel Garcia and Ibraim Roberson handling each of those issues respectively.

“The original Annihilation and Annihilation Conquest are some of my favorite Marvel books of all time because they are so big in scale and yet so full of great characters and real drama,” Rosenberg said to Newsarama. ” That’s what we’re doing here. It’s huge stakes, brutal action, universe destroying threats, and some of the best heroes (and not-quite heroes) the Marvel Universe has to offer thrown headfirst at it. We’re definitely paying tribute to the original Annihilation books, but I think for fans of those books they will be shocked at where this goes. And if you’ve never read Annihilation, stop reading this and go read it right now. Or maybe finish reading this, and then go read it. Either way, read it today.”
