Well, someone left Jonathan Hickman unsupervised again, and now he’s doing crazy things in Marvel comics. This time, him and Valerio Schiti are working on a new story called G.O.D.S., and it might totally upend the entire Marvel universe.
Though G.O.D.S. is coming in October, Marvel shared a preview today. Here’s what you can expect from the event:
This October, visionary writer Jonathan Hickman and superstar artist Valerio Schiti will re-invent the cosmology of the Marvel Universe in G.O.D.S.! The new series will dramatically transform Marvel’s classic pantheon of cosmic beings and introduce brand-new concepts and characters that operate at the crossroads of science and magic. Today, fans can see Mateus Manhanini’s stunning cover for issue one as well as an exciting lettered preview!
Manhanini’s cover spotlights Wyn, one of the many new characters that readers will meet in the series. And in the preview, witness a gathering of two mysterious factions: THE-POWERS-THAT-BE and THE-NATURAL-ORDER-OF-THINGS. Alongside familiar faces like Doctor Strange, Clea, Mister Fantastic, and Doctor Doom, the agents of these groups learn of a Babylon Event, a rare occurrence that has the potential to upend the forces behind existence such as Eternity, Infinity, and the Living Tribunal. This cataclysmic threat will bring a eons-old war out of the shadows for the first time and shed light on long-guarded secrets of the cosmos!
If that sounds like your sort of story, be sure and check out the full cover and details below. And stay tuned to The Workprint for more marvelous new tales of wonder.
