Marvel Comics has had a gang buster of a last months revealing its post Secret Wars 2015 All-New All-Different Marvel branded new ongoing series; approximately 55 to 60 titles will be under this ANAD Marvel umbrella between September 2015 and February 2016.
During San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) International 2015, Marvel executives also revealed 15 ongoing series to retailers without creative teams. Marvel also rolled out two much debated and dissected teaser images with a collage of characters associated with, at the time, ongoing series that had yet to be announced (see above and below).
Spoilers follow including Marvel Comics December 2015 solicitations.
We’re now at Marvel’s December 2015 solicitations and there are a handful of new series rolling out just in time for Christmas and the holidays; seven (7) series in total that were announced separately with their creative teams:
This all builds on what ongoing comic book series and creative teams that were announced prior to that:
- Initially announced 9 new series starting from September 2015;
- Followed by a massive reveal of 36 new series in its September 2015 preview book; and
- 4 new series to launch between October 2015 and November 2015.
That leaves us with 56 series announced so far.
Reading the tea leaves of Marvel teaser images and what they revealed to retailors at SDCC 2015 we have five (5) more series to come:
- Black Panther
- Black Widow
- Citizen V or Thunderbolts series with him
- Death’s Head with Death’s Head II I believe
- Iron Man series number two
However, Marvel also let a sixth (6) series slip last Friday. In his latest Axel-in-Charge column, Marvel Comics’ Editor in Chief (EIC) Axel Alonso revealed in response to a fan question another title that will be part of Marvel’s All-New All-Different January 2015 solicitations:
Mockingbird’s going to be appearing regularly in the new “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” series starting in January, and on an irregular basis in “Amazing Spider-Man.” But more solo adventures for Bobbi? That would be telling…
Perhaps a solo Mockingbird series at some point too?
So it appears that the All-New All-Different Marvel Comics new ongoing series released between September 2015 and February 2016 will at least total 62 new books; ten (10) more than DC Comics pre DC You branding of the New 52. Deliberate? Perhaps.
Plus, what about the teased new Alpha Flight and Captain Britain series during Fan Expo 2015? 64 new ANAD Marvel series?
Lots more to come with January 2016 and February 2016 Marvel solicitations to come.
