Jason Aaron & Iban Coello Create Marvel FCBD Gold Avengers/Hulk #1

There's still very little detail about Marvel Comics' plans for Free Comic Book Day this August. But we do now have one additional nugget of information regarding Marvel's Gold FCBD title, of which all stores wishing to participate will have to order at least 25 copies. We knew it was to be called Avengers/Hulk #1, but now we also know that the writer will be current Avengers writer Jason Aaron and drawn by current Venom artist Iban Coello.

Might this suggest that Jason Aaron will be staying on Avengers after Heroes Reborn and Heroes Return? And more tales of the Avenger Prime? (Maybe it's Mephisto). Or maybe that he will be the new Hulk writer with a new #1 after the end of Al Ewing's run on Immortal Hulk (maybe he'll fight Mephisto). Just mindless speculation at the moment, not sourced from anyone, but at least Bleeding Cool is showing our working out. And saying Mephisto a lot.

And might this also suggest post-Venom plans for Iban Coello as well? Here are the current solicitations for Marvel's Gold and Silver FCBD titles.
