It’s easy to get lost at San Diego Comic Con, in the hype and the spectacle of movies, video games, TV shows, toys…but, it’s still San Diego Comic Con, and news about comic books is still a real and important thing.
Let’s check out some of what went down in the Marvel World.
Longshot will be getting his own mini-series. Written by Christopher Hastings with art by Jacopo Camagni, it will launch in November.
When the luckiest people in NYC are being routinely murdered, the next target on the list is Longshot. It’s not just one person that’s marked him for elimination, however, and soon everyone from supervillains to S.H.I.E.L.D. to cosmic beings are gunning for him. With the odds stacked against him, Longshot’s about to press his luck.
We get a new X-Men title with a team featuring (confirmed members so far) Iceman, Storm, Beast, Northstar, and Firestar, Nightcrawler. Announced during the X-Men panel, the series will be written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Ed McGuinness. Te series will be focused on Wolverine’s mission to search every corner of the Marvel Universe in an effort to bring Nightcrawler back from the dead. From the looks of it…it works.
