As all of New York Comic Con collectively gasped with pleasure, Marvel Comics announced that global entertainment superstar and fashion icon Donny Cates will take over as the new writer of Thor at the Next Big Thing panel. Cates’ dream has always been to write Venom and Thor, just as its been all of our dream, collectively, as the comics readership to read him writing those characters. We’ve gotten one, Now we get the other.
Time to bring the thunder, true believers.
For Asgard. Forever.

Cates will be joined by artist Nic Klein and colorist Matthew Wilson for the new title, launching in January. The Marvel Universe will surely never be the same.
Thanks to suckling at the teat of corporate masters for over a decade, compliant Marvel media partner Newsarama was slipped the solicit early, so we’ve copied and pasted it below.
Writer: DONNY CATES
Artist: NIC KLEIN
A BRAND-NEW, SUPERSTAR CREATIVE TEAM TAKES THE KING OF ASGARD TO NEW REALMS OF GLORY!
The prince is now a king. All Asgard lies before Thor, the God of Thunder. And after many months of war, the Ten Realms are finally at peace. But the skies above the Realm Eternal are never clear for long. The Black Winter is coming. And the God of the Storm will be powerless before it.
