Being asked about Marvel's upcoming major event crossover Secret Empire at the Coast-To-Coast Comic-Con, writers Dan Slott and David Walker talked about how little they could say.
But one thing Marvel editor Jake Thomas decided he could say, to seemingly-nervous noises from Dan Slott, was that Marvel Comics readers don't know how much in other titles have been leading into Secret Empire. It's not just Nick Spencer's work in Captain America: Steve Rogers and Captain America: Sam Wilson – and maybe a little in Thunderbolts – but it's many more Marvel titles as well.
Could that include the Parker Industries in Spider-Man? Or the Inhumans city in the Hudson River? Why is the most intelligent person in the world stuck Tyrannosaur-sitting?
All will be revealed. But not yet.
David Walker talked about a book he's pitched that's not Amazing Spider-Man, one of five things he's looking forward to that he can't mention. Jake Thomas talked up Iron Fists by Kaare Andrews and Afua Chan, who has drawn the first three issues before the first is solicited, and David's future Spider-Man plans. While David is looking forward to everything Jason Aaron is doing, with his pitches at Marvel retreats being the things of legend. Dan is talking up Silver Surfer #12 as the one story they've wanting to tell. Dan likes that "there's so many different flavours of books" but can't wait to read everything Al Ewing has been pitching.
Me too, Dan!
And Dan Slott at the last second threw in "the Charles Soule Daredevil shit", and became the first person to swear at Coast To Coast 2017…
