This weekend, Marvel unveiled its 2019 Publishing Slate to a hall of fans attending Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel during this year’s Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. Hosted by Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski along with some of Marvel’s biggest creators, the panel recapped some of the weekend’s biggest Marvel Comics news and teased what’s next in the Marvel Universe – pointing to a yet-to-be-revealed story in December.
Since the convention’s opening on Friday, attendees have received thrilling new looks at Marvel’s world-shaking War of the Realms series, written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Young Gun Russell Dauterman; the deadly Absolute Carnage event, written by Donny Cates and drawn by Ryan Stegman; and the next monumental chapter for the X-Men with House of X and Powers of X, written by Jonathan Hickman and drawn by Young Gun Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva respectively.
Each of these standalone series will introduce fans to groundbreaking new ideas and shocking implications for the Marvel Universe, setting the scene for Marvel’s most iconic and popular Super Heroes later this year.

Now there’s only one realm left standing: ours.
This July, Marvel’s House of Xand Powers of X will mark the next major milestone in X-Men history.

Beginning in Free Comic Book Day Spider-Man/Venom #1 (out May 5), Cletus Kasady is back, and he’s deadlier than ever.
