Marvel Ups Ante With New "Generations" Media Blast Containing Nearly All Creative Teams And Most Covers

Marvel has released a new media blast revealing nearly all of the creative teams and most of the covers for Generations, the crossover event created to save the slumping sales of an already existing super-mega-crossover event which is in the process of saving the slumping sales of the rest of the publishing line. It's Trickle Down Cominomics just the way we like it here in America, and hey, if you don't like it, go move to Norway and read Donald Duck comics or something. This new media blast follows an earlier media blast which only contained most of the creative teams and some of the covers, as we reported back on April 20th, but maybe everyone was just too stoned to remember and that's why it's news again today.

Generations pairs legacy characters with their prior versions in a series of one-shots that Marvel claims will shed light on the most pressing questions about the future of the Marvel Universe, and the fate of everyone's favorite heroes. In other words, who is still a Nazi? Hopefully, nobody.

It's unknown at this time if Marvel will release one more intermediary media blast consisting of all of the creative teams and nearly all of the covers before finally revealing all of the creative teams and all of the covers, but we'll be on the lookout. Check out the lineup of ten one-shots below, shipping in August and September:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
