Marvel NOW!: Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers For December

Bleeding Cool previously reported that Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic were taking over the Avengers title. Well, we may need a few more artists. Who are happy with crowd scenes.

Entertainment Weekly’s Comic Con issue reports Avengers as one of the Marvel NOW! relaunch, stating;

AVENGERS: The updated series promises a diverse sprawling cast that goes far beyond the movie lineup. “It’s not six Avengers it’s 18 or more” says writer Jonathan Hickman. AVENGERS will be bi-weekly and will feature a combination of one-off stories and longer, galaxy-spanning multi-issue arcs. DEC 2012

And expect everything to tie into everything else in an increasingly complex, multilayered and beautifully set up web of plot. It is a Hickman book after all…

Anyway, all in all, I think that’s five-and-a-half ticks on the Bleeding Cool Marvel Now rumour checklist card, don’t you?

It's Comic Con week! Comics, Film, TV, and much more... Check out complete coverage on the Bleeding Cool San Diego Comic Con Hub.
