New York is in trouble again with Marvel‘s October five-week event title, Contagion. This time it is a strange substance that is taking over both heroes and citizens of the Big Apple, draining life force and knowledge. Helping Marvel spread the contagion is writer Ed Brisson and artists Roge Antonio, Stephen Segovia, Mack Chater, Damian Couciero, & Adam Gorham.
While it looks like many New York heroes and villains will be involved, the covers for the mini-series appear to feature Thing, Moloids, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Pei (?), Moon Knight, and the Avengers.
Here’s the solicitation for the series:
