Now, the comic book was published many months ago, when it was intended to be published in early May for Free Comic Book Day as opposed to tomorrow for Free Comic Book Summer. So the teaser is timed for 'Fall 2020'. Whatever it is, will take a little longer than that to be published. But at some point, maybe for the winter, Tom Taylor and Iban Coello will have Dark Ages coming.

Note, this is not Dark Agnes, the Robert E Howard comic that Marvel is also meant to be publishing.  Nor The Dark Age, the story that Tom Taylor wrote for Earth 2 at DC Comics. But Dark Ages… asking 'Where were you when the lights went out?' and telling a Saga of the Marvel Universe. Promising big changes too… with this logo design by Jay Bowen suggesting something heavy, metallic and made of iron.

You know, The Dark Age is also the Miracleman/Marvelman story that was intended to follow the halfway-complete Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham story The Silver Age. But this isn't that… I don't think. More tomorrow, obviously…
