Marvel is starting to ramp up its promotional machine again as they slowly start to put out comics again. With that, the company has announced two new titles currently due out in August, featuring some creative veterans of the industry.
Writer Peter David will be returning to the character he created 28 years ago in the Hulk: Future Imperfect mini-series with Maestro #1 in August. Perceptive readers would be correct in guessing the series of indeterminate length would be starring that far-future version of the Hulk, Maestro. This time, David will be joined by artists Dale Keown and Germán Peralta for the origin story of Maestro:
How does Earth fall and Maestro rise? What happens to the world’s heroes? And what does fate have in store for Bruce Banner and the Hulk? Find out in MAESTRO #1 when it smashes its way into comic shops this August!
David’s co-collaborator from Future Imperfect, the legendary George Pérez, will provide a variant cover for the first issue.
Another industry legend, Neal Adams, will collaborate with veteran writer Mark Waid on a story about the First Family and the Devourer of Worlds. Fantastic Four: Antithesis will feature the Fantastic Four, Galactus, and his herald the Silver Surfer, meeting the Planet-Eater’s “Antithesis”:
Who or what is the Antithesis, and will the combined might of the Fantastic Four, the Silver Surfer, and Galactus himself be enough to defeat it? Find out more when FANTASTIC FOUR: ANTITHESIS #1 hits comic shops in August!
