Everything We Learned In Incoming #1 – What Did We Miss?

We've had quite the time reading and re-reading Marvel's Incoming #1, published this past week.

  1. We've analysed what we think 'Beware The Trees' means.
  2. We interpreted more code as 'All Hail The King'- and which King this may be.
  3. We've looked into just who Raksor and General Bel-Dann are.
  4. We've pieced together the Robot Revolution coming in Iron Man 2020.
  5. We've profiled Senator Geoffrey Patrick and his plans to stop child soldiers in the Marvel Universe
  6. We've asked if Mister Sinister will be making chimera on Krakoa now?
  7. We looked to the new Three XXXs and how the Skrulls and Kree will be reuniting in Empyre.

Incoming #1

But there's still more to unpack. Looks like Matt Murdock isn't Daredevil again. Unless this was before. Or when he won't be again. I need a timeline…

Incoming #1

We've seen Empyre be set up – probably with Al Ewing – and the title A4: Empyre suggest that it is an Avengers/Fantastic Four team-up. Unless that's hexadecimal for 164. We've talked about how Donny Cates is taking Thor cosmic again. What I am also being told to look for, is everyone to go cosmic in 2020, across the board…

Incoming is a good place to start.

Incoming #1 was published this week from Marvel Comics. I bought mine from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, which runs Magic The Gathering nights on Fridays, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, which also runs Magic nights and has an extensive back issue collection and online store. If you are in the neighbourhood, check them out.
