Including the announcement of a new 6-issue series written by Mark Waid, with art by Javier Rodriguez and Alvaro Lopez, dubbed The History Of The Marvel Universe, retellig the story of… everything that happened.
Waid is well known for an encyclopaedic knowledge of the most obscure comics continuity, so we can expect plentyy of dive deeps to come.
The comic has been in production for a while – but the first cover from Steve McNiven (drawing covers for all 6 issues) just came in today.
And here's a look inside. More to come when we have it…
It will tells the story of the Marvel Universe chronologically. And events tied together with a throughline they aren't ready to reveal …
More as we have it.
