SDCC 2022: Aaron’s Avengers Assemble, Moon Girl, and more during Marvel’s Next Big Thing Panel

Marvel’s famous panel Next Big Thing Panel at at San Diego Comic-Con is always filled to the brim with announcements, first looks, and teases about the future of the Marvel Universe! Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski, Executive Editor Nick Lowe, editors Darren Shan and Lauren Bisom and an incredible lineup of creators including Christopher Cantwell, Jonathan Hickman, Ram V, and Collin Kelly & Jackson Lanzing came together to reveal some of the hottest Marvel titles coming your way in the next few months. Here’s some of the panel’s biggest announcements!

Marvel Comics visionary Jason Aaron will unite his work on Avengers, Avengers Forever, and Avengers of 1,000,000 BC into one incredible epic in Avengers Assemble! Aaron will kick off the saga with superstar artist Bryan Hitch in November’s Avengers Assemble: Alpha one-shot before crossing over between issues of AVENGERS and AVENGERS FOREVER!

From throughout time and the far corners of the Multiverse, the Mightiest Heroes of All the Earths are assembling as never before for a battle beyond all imagining. A war that will take us from the prehistoric beginnings of an Earth under assault by the greatest villains who’ve ever lived to the watchtower that stands at the dark heart of the all and the always, where an army of unprecedented evil now rises. The biggest Avengers saga in Marvel history begins now.

Avengers Assemble: Alpha

From the fantastical mind of creator Tradd Moore comes a Strange story like you’ve never seen in Doctor Strange: Fall Sunrise! Launching in November, the four-issue limited series sees Doctor Strange awaken alone in a distant world not his own. Lost of purpose and surrounded by danger, the wandering sorcerer must explore this land of blades and mystery to unravel arcane secrets and escape the deadly horrors that lie in wait!

November will also see an oversized celebration for the Golden Avenger’s 650th issue in Iron Man #25! It’s Iron Man Day in New York City, but not everyone is ready to celebrate the ongoing legacy of Tony Stark — least of all him. But a sudden crisis will once again test Tony’s heroism and challenge his commitment to the role he has assumed for himself. Must there be an Iron Man?  Christopher Cantwell concludes his thought-provoking and powerful run as writer, as illustrated by Angel Unzueta. PLUS! Murewa Ayodele and Dotun Akande tell a tale of Iron Man’s quest to locate Thor amid the frozen wastelands of Niffleheim. Kurt Busiek and Ben Dewey pair up to provide an all-new vintage Iron Man adventure from the distant past featuring Madame Masque and the Radioactive Man! And get a special glimpse of what’s coming up next for the Armored Avenger! Check out the cover by Alex Ross.

But when the media dub him the Gold Goblin, he has to start wondering – can he ever get away from the Goblin inside? 

Werewolf by Moon Knight this October

Marc Spector is currently baring his very soul as he tackles his most hard-hitting missions to date in writer Jed MacKay’s current run on Moon Knight. With new villains and fresh takes on the Moon Knight mythology, the title has been a hit with fans, and this October, readers will be treated to even more revolutionary Moon Knight action in the run’s first annual. A double-sized spectacular, Moon Knight Annual #1 will feature art by Federico Sabbatini, the artist behind select issues of Moon Knight as well as the recent Devil’s Reign: Moon Knight one-shot. The story will feature a bloody reunion between Moon Knight and an iconic Marvel Comics character whom he shares deep roots with—Jack Russell, the Werewolf by Night! 

In the Darkhold, there is a prophecy of how a god might die. Jack Russell, more familiar with that cursed tome than most, would like very much to kill a god and save his people, the people bound in servitude to the moon. But to fulfill that prophecy requires the blood of the Fist of Khonshu, and Moon Knight doesn’t bleed easily.

Don’t miss this deadly rematch between Marvel’s two supernatural powerhouses when Moon Knight Annual #1 hits stands in October with a cover by Rod Reis!

It’s a “Month of Mayhem” from Archie Horror this Fall

Archie Comics is taking over Spooky Season with four all-new horror comics launching in October, also known as Archie Horror’s Month of Mayhem! Headlined by a sequel to last year’s Chilling Adventures in Sorcery, the rest of the lineup includes campfire tales for kids, an ’80s-tinted solo adventure for Sabrina’s cat Salem, and a Twilight Zone-esque flight into the sci-fi side of horror.

Leading the initiative in late September, Chilling Adventures Presents… Weirder Mysteries is a trio of dark sci-fi tales kicked off by writer Frank Tieri in a welcome return to the universe of his previous hit Archie Horror series, with art by Federico Sabbatini.

The issue is rounded out with two stories written by Joanne Starer and Ron Robbins with art by Juan Bobillo and Ryan Jampolefeaturing rare appearances by Bingo Wilkin, star of the ’70s comic series That Wilkin Boy, and Alexandra Cabot, a foil for Josie and the Pussycats.

Archie Comics’ beloved teenage witch Sabrina Spellman is no stranger to Archie Horror, having headlined her own comic, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, that spawned a Netflix streaming series. Like any good witch, Sabrina has a magical feline familiar named Salem, and now, horror-loving cat fanciers will have something to celebrate on October 12 when he stars in his first solo title, Chilling Adventures of Salem! Written by comics horror master Cullen Bunn with evocative nostalgic “horror paperback” art by Dan Schoeningthe one-shot follows Salem as he helps neighborhood animals exact revenge on those who’ve caused them harm.

Archie Horror’s first foray into middle grade chills debuts October 19 with Fear the FunhouseInspired by genuinely scary children’s horror like Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark?, the one-shot anthology features a framing sequence in which younger versions of the core Archie Comics cast tell each other increasingly terrifying stories by a campfire. It boasts three stories written by Micol OstowMagdalene Visaggioand Michael Northrop with art by Lisette CarreraRyan Caskeyand Diana Camero.

Rounding out Archie Horror’s inaugural Month of Mayhem on October 26 is The Return of Chilling Adventures in Sorcerya direct sequel to last year’s smash hit one-shot starring the iconic Sabrina villain, Madam Satan! Our titular anti-hero has escaped Hell and is on the loose, but not for long; Satan is on the hunt and she’s now hiding in Baxter High, posing as the school’s principal. Each classroom seems to be a portal back to Hell — and our window into a new scary story — culminating in a climactic showdown. Original framing sequence writer Eliot Rahal returns to pick up the thread here, along with writers Sina Grace and Casey Gillyand artists Vincenzo FedericiCorin Howelland Liana Kangas.

Review: Devil’s Reign: Moon Knight #1

Devil's Reign: Moon Knight #1

When I was in the military we ran combat scenarios where  we are trained for every possibility. There are times when those scenarios actually play out in real life. We rarely think that what we trained for we would actually use. That is usually the beauty of muscle memory when we actually get to the situation, it all kicks in.

One of those scenarios that we train for is what happens when someone gets you in a “killbox”. That’s the military definition of having your backs against the wall. When you’re surrounded by enemies survival is truly minute to minute. In Devil’s Reign: Moon Knight, we find our titular character jailed by villains and surrounded mostly by the men he put in jail.

Kingpin is Mayor and he has been jailing masked vigilantes which now includes Moon Knight, and is imprisoned in the Myrmidon, the private prison for super criminals. As he begins his tenure, he surveys the jail to see who really is in charge and who is an immediate threat, as he first looks for a fight right away. Eventually, he gets into the illegal jail fights organized by the guards, facing  new and old foes, eviscerating each of them effortlessly. As he fights his way to the top competitor, who gives him his toughest match. By the issue’s end, we see that it was Marc’s plan all along, as he was there to right a wrong.

Overall, Devil’s Reign: Moon Knight #1 is an action packed issue that shows why Marc Spector is so terrifying. The story by MacKay is astounding. The art by the creative team is amazing. Altogether, this book will get fans excited for his Disney+ debut.

No one is safe from Kingpin’s wrath in Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto’s Devil’s Reign #3. New York City stands at the brink of disaster as MAYOR WILSON FISK has at last reached a breaking point, with an army of super villains at his back, and a deputized crew of super villainous THUNDERBOLTS on the streets and in every police station. Worse still, he’s put the Marvel Universe’s most powerful tools into (all six) hands of one of its most diabolical minds, unaware of the disaster that could befall the entire city as a result! As a gauntlet of super villains stand between Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Daredevil and liberating the heroes who have been captured by Fisk’s law enforcement, they’re ALL about to learn that the danger is closer than they ever thought possible.

Chip Zdarsky and Rafael De Latorre’s Daredevil: Woman Without Fear #1 brings readers the next pulse-pounding chapter in the saga of New York City’s Guardian Devil, this time starring Elektra as Daredevil! This continuation of Zdarsky’s landmark DAREDEVIL run spins directly out of the shocking revelations in the pages of DEVIL’S REIGN!

What else would you expect from the MARVEL UNIVERSE’S GREATEST HUNTER?!

A new crew of X-Men set sail in Steve Orlando and Creees Lee’s Marauders Annual #1! With Kate Pryde at the helm, the Marauders are ready to renew their mission of mutant rescue! She’s got the mission – all she needs now is a new boat and a fresh crew to match. Pryde and Bishop must unite a crew of mutants, new and old, to spring Daken from imprisonment at the hands of a leader who’s as cruel as he is charismatic: the primal provocateur known as Brimstone Love! It’s the Marauders versus the Theater of Pain, a torture troupe that’s set up shop in Xavier’s School’s old backyard! Come aboard for the first adventure as Orlando takes the helm with the X-Men’s sea-faring mutant team.

Marauders Annual #1

Joined by artist Federico Sabbatini, Jed MacKay’s hit run on Moon Knight continues in Moon Knight #7! How do you fight someone that no one knows? Moon Knight is out for blood and hits the streets armed only with a name, but he soon finds out that in the twilight half-world of NYC super villainy, sometimes the streets hit back. And while he’s fighting his way through the super-crime underworld, he’d better watch his back.

Moon Knight #7 2nd printing

The best character ever is back in her own series and about to glam up the whole Marvel Universe in Rainbow Rowell and Roge Antonio’s She-Hulk #1! Jennifer Walters is no longer savage and needs to put her life back together. She’s got a career to rebuild, friends to reconnect with (and maybe represent in a court of law) and enemies to… well, she may not want to connect with them, but they are DEFINITELY going to connect with her. And the last page of this first issue is going to send Jen down a road she’s never traveled and that will shake up her life and possibly the whole Marvel Universe.

Don’t miss the comics debut of stunning storyteller Emily Kim and the return of legendary comic artist Takeshi Miyazawa in Silk #1! Cindy Moon returns as the web-spinning Spider-Hero SILK in an all-new, all-star series! As Silk gains popularity in the public eye, Cindy is questioning her place in the world. But existentialism will have to wait when a powerful new villain is turned loose! In a race against the clock, Silk discovers the dangers of ancient Korean magic – and social media.

Silk #1

Legendary creators Ron Marz and Ron Lim returning to tell a story set during their fan-favorite run of SILVER SURFER in Silver Surfer: Rebirth #1! Someone has stolen the Reality Gem, an object that allows the user to fulfill any wish no matter the consequences! But whoever has taken it is doing things like bringing back the dead hero Captain Mar-Vell. It’s up to Silver Surfer to team up with the least likely of allies, Thanos, to find the Gem and restore reality to its proper form. The second printing variant cover will feature all-new artwork by Ron Lim.

Also returning to shops will be the special facsimile edition of Conan the Barbarian (1970) #1! Over fifty years ago, legendary writer Roy Thomas teamed with visionary artist Barry Windsor-Smith for the first comic book adaptation of Robert E. Howard’s pulp novel icon – introducing True Believers to swords and sorcery in the Mighty Marvel Manner! Conan comic books soon became a huge, industry-changing success story – and it all began with CONAN THE BARBARIAN #1 in 1970! Join the young Cimmerian warrior as he and an Aesir raiding party invade the land of Vanaheim – setting Conan on a path of adventure leading to winged demons, a dark temple and the mysterious Star-Stone, which would offer a vision of Conan’s future as a king! It’s one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all!
