Dan Abnett Returns to Marvel Cosmic for Annihilation Scourge in December Solicits

Marvel has revealed the December solicitations for Annihilation Scourge, following the Annihilation Scourge Alpha one-shot that launches the event in November. It looks like the event will include a series of one-shots in December and then wrap up with an Omega issue that same month. It’s not revealed whether there will be any additional one-shots or series or if this is the entire event.

So far, Michael Moreci will write the Beta Ray Bill one-shot with fan-favorite artist TBD. Christos Gage and Diego Olortegui will bring us the Fantastic Four one-shot. Matthew Rosenberg, who is also writing the Alpha and Omega issues, will write Nova (Richard Rider) with Ibraim Roberson, while Manuel Garcia is the artist on the Omega issue. But in one of the coolest announcements of this event, Dan Abnett, one half of the DnA writing team that helped return Marvel Cosmic to prominence spinning out of the original Annihilation event, will return to write the Silver Surfer one-shot with Paul Davidson.

Check out the solicits below, as well as a quote from an EX-X-XCLUSIVE interview with Matty Rosenberg on Marvel media partner Newsarama.

Annihilus plays a pretty huge role in this. It is sorta named after him, of course. But he is NOT the threat here. I can’t say too much, but let’s just say we’re going to see Annihilus in a very different way here. This new threat has him scared and fighting for his life. And when that new threat reveals itself… Well, he’s going to need some help if he hopes to stop it.

About Jude Terror

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

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
