The Pain of a Universe-Shattering Reboot Explored in 2099 Omega #1 [Preview]

In Marvel Comics, universes are constantly being shaken to their foundations, leaving nothing ever the same again. Normally, this is presented as a selling point. But does anyone ever stop to thing about the repercussions for the characters who have to live through it?

2099 Omega #1 is in stores from Marvel Comics this week, by Nick Spencer, Gerardo Sandoval, and Ze Carlos, wrapping up this mini crossover event, and the issue addresses just that, as we see in this preview.

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.
