Marvel will release its arbitrarily-numbered Marvel Comics #1000 in August as a giant celebration of Marvel’s 80th anniversary. How does the House of Ideas follow up on that? Well, with Marvel Comics #1001 of course.
Details on the follow-up to #1000 are light, and we’re not sure if there will be as many creators involved in the sequel, but currently the count is at least 25 (with more promised):
Al Ewing, Nick Spencer, G. Willow Wilson, Scott Aukerman, ACO, Brian Posehn, Howard Chaykin, Vita Ayala, Humberto Ramos, Audrey Loeb, Dario Brizuela, Ann Nocenti, Kim Jacinto, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, Declan Shalvey, Kaare Andrews, Amy Reeder, Natacha Bustos, Frank Tieri, Dan Panosian, André Lima Araújo, Bill Morrison, Trina Robbins, Marc Guggenheim, and more
Marvel describes #1001’s contents as:
… another super secret and remarkably revelatory tale. Featuring more insights about the Eternity Mask and the person who wears it, this ish features work from some of Marvel’s most beloved creators…
Marvel Comics #1001 lands in comic stores September 25.
Hopefully there will be no more cover controversy this time around…
