Marvel Comics has so far rolled out 45 of its 60 plus All-New All-Different Marvel Comics series spinning out of Secret Wars. It started with the first 9 Marvel series profiled followed by the remaining 36 on New Comic Book Day (#NCBD) this week.
These post Secret Wars titles are a mix of new, different and some familiar. While about 75% of the All-New All-Different Marvel Comics are revealed, there are at least another 15 or more series to be announced; some are tied to the below teasers revealed by Marvel while some are glaring omissions.
Also don’t expect the 45 of the 60 that have been announced so far to all debut in October 2015. Marvel was very critical of DC Comics doing that post Flashpoint with their New 52; launching 52 #1 comics in one month. Marvel has indicated that that will roll out the All-New All-Different Marvel over a few months. So that roll-out likely begins in October 2015. Look for anywhere between 15 to 20 or so of the previously announced titles in October 2015 followed by similar numbers in November 2015 and December 2015. That would mean that Marvel’s final 15 plus titles to be announced look to be December 2015 titles if not early 2016.
Those yet-to-be-announced titles would likely include many of the following:
- Citizen V and/or All-New Thunderbolts
- 1872’s Red Wolf Series
- Punisher (to be in Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2)
- Guardians of the Galaxy solo titles: Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Gamora and Thing (formerly of Fantastic Four) in space a la Venom: Spaceknight
- Avengers solo titles: Black Widow, Black Panther and Steve Rogers, Captain America / Super Soldier
- Inhumans solo titles: Human Torch (formerly of Fantastic Four) and Black Bolt
- X-Men solo titles: Gambit (while Marvel appears to be resting Fantastic Four due to Fix film issues, Marvel still likes the X-Men and Gambit has a solo film coming)
- A second Iron Man title (in light of his spotlight in both teasers)
- A Fantastic Four title that may not be called that and/or a Doctor Doom series (in light of his Secret Wars role and Marvel liking villain-centric series)
What do you think will be part of Marvel Comics’ next wave of All-New All-Different Marvel Comics series?
Which books do you want to see from Marvel? Me, I’d love to see an Ares and a Skaar series, but I understand Marvel has killed them… or something… in the last few years. I recall pitching an Avengers line-up a while ago that included USAgent, War Machine, Ares, Skaar, Brother Voodoo and others, kinda like a doppelgangers Avengers where they feel they have something to prove because they aren’t Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk or Doctor Strange, but I doubt we’ll see that series.
However, Extraordinary X-Men, which will be published, has 2 of my fave X-Men in Colossus and Nightcrawler. If it had Bishop and Gambit alongside them with, maybe, Cable it would have all my fave X-Men, but the book looks promising.
Nonetheless, even without my ideal Avengers line-up, the post Secret Wars Marvel universe publishing line does look promising, diverse and less derivative then under previous branding strategies. I can’t wait for the next wave. Bring on Citizen V!
