The Cup o’ Joe panel had a few announcements and has taken the first step to solving some of the solitication mysteries spinning out of “Marvel Now.” A lot of it seems to be spun out of AVX.
So let’s count off the new stuff:
A-Babies Vs X-Babies – A one-shot written by Skottie Young and illustrated by Guruhiru. I look at that and the first thing that pops into my mind is “Watchmen Babies” from The Simpsons.
A+X: New series with Jeph Loeb, Dan Slott, Dale Keown and Ron Garney mentioned as creators. Whether they’re all collaborating or tagging off, I’m not entirely sure. That’s an ongoing.
AVX: Consequences: 5 weekly issues from Kieron Gillen, Tom Raney and Mark Brooks. Does sound a bit like an After School Special, with a title like that.
The new “Point One” will feature Nick Fury, Jr. and Jeph Loeb is teasing the word “Diamondhead,” which is either an old Nova villain or a volcano in Hawaii. I’m thinking it’s Nova and related to the Marvel Cosmic rumors. Multiple stories in this one-shot by a cast including Bendis/Fraction/Loeb/Spencer/McNiven/Allred,/McKelvie/Larrocca.
Uncanny Avengers was name checked, but nothing you haven’t heard before.
