8 Months Later – The All-New All-Different Marvel Universe

All-New. All-Different

 

That's the Marvel tease. We reported as much back in December 2014, as to what Marvel may be planning in September 2015. But what can we expect? Let's try and piece some things together.

Consider this a lot of mindless supposition. No sources, just adding two and two together and making Pi. But, the solicits for August's SHIELD #9 are as follows

S.H.I.E.L.D. #9
MARK WAID, AL EWING, STAN LEE (W)
LEE FERGUSON, JACK KIRBY (A)
Cover by JULIAN TOTINO TEDESCO
HOWLING COMMANDOS VARIANT BY ART ADAMS
Variant cover by JACK KIRBY & JIM STERANKO
BLACK & WHITE VARIANT BY JACK KIRBY JIM STERANKO
THE MAN CALLED D.E.A.T.H.!
Oversized Anniversary Issue! Waid! Ferguson! Kirby! Steranko!
• A commemorative 50th Anniversary story that spans the past and the present, and unites Phil Coulson and Nick Fury, Sr. in a unique cross-time adventure to answer a riddle that lies at the heart of the origins of SHIELD: who is The Man Called D.E.A.T.H.? Includes a sequence penciled by Jack Kirby and inked by Jim Steranko that has never seen print as part of a story before!
Plus: The return of Dum Dum Dugan and the birth of the new Howling Commandos! The very first SHIELD story from 1965! And the pilot
presentation sequence that inspired the creation of SHIELD!
64 PGS./Rated T+ …$5.99

The bolding is ours of course. Could it suggest that the Howling Commandos series set to launch after Secret Wars may be written by Al Ewing?

UPDATE: Even more mindless than usual – Al wrote the Dum Dum Dugan story being referenced here…
