Marvel Comics has announced The End coming in January at the Diamond Retailer Breakfast at New York Comic-Con this morning. Reviving the concept of previous stories with the same branding that tell the final tales of Marvel heroes, the House of Ideas will publish six one-shots in January. Our embedded ace reporters snapped photos of five of them. Looks like Captain Marvel, Deadpool, Venom, Doctor Strange, and Miles Morales will meet their doom (in out-of-continuity possible future stories) in January, plus one more unrevealed.
Marvel will also be reprinting previous The End tales as trade paperbacks…
Though no X-Men: The End by Chris Claremont and Sean Chen, of course.
Keep an eye on the NYCCBreakfast tag for more breaking news from the Diamond Retailer Breakfast, where Bleeding Cool Ace Reporters Sofia Annunziata and Richard Epstein are on the scene, and as always, make yours Bleeding Cool.
Update: Bleeding Cool are naughty boys and girls and must send reporters to cover the news, but compliant media partner websites get solicits and can stay in bed:
