SDCC 2012: Marvel's Next Big Thing Panel

By Todd Allen

A few items from Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel.  Something of a round-up of recent events with some art.

First up, we find out the new Gambit series will open with a shower scene.  First Archaia announces an adaption of Cyborg 009, and now a shower scene at Marvel.  Manga’s influence is as strong as ever.

There’s going to be a special “honeymoon” issue of Astonishing X-Men and it will be an Annual.

It’s confirmed that Daniel Way will be leaving Deadpool.  Way has new project Marvel doesn’t want to talk about yet.

X-Factor will be having a 5-issue story arc called “Breaking Points” that will wrap up a lot of loose ends.

As of issue #58 in October, Red Hulk becomes Red She-Hulk by Jeff Parker, Carlo Pagulayan and Wellinton Alves.

With issue #58, Hulk (the Hulk title with the Red Hulk) will be changing it’s name to Red She-Hulk.  Jeff Parker stays on as writer, Carlo Pagulayan and Wellinton Alves on the art.

New Mutants is confirmed as ending with #50.

And a little Captain Marvel art to tide you over until that launches.

    I’m shocked Marvel is not publishing RED SHE-HULK #1. I understand the (short-term) success they had with INCREDIBLE HERCULES and BLACK PANTHER MWF; however, I would have thought that Red She-Hulk could carry a new title…

    It’s particularly odd as HULK is one of Marvel’s lower-selling titles – it’s not as if it has a particularly big audience to pass on.

  3. Paul Houston says

    If these actually were aimed at kids and/or teenagers these would be pretty cool.

    It’s unfortunate that New Mutants is ending. The original series started not long after I began reading comics and I’ve always had a fondness for those characters.

    On the other hand, it’s a god-damned shame that there’s going to be a She-Hulk book that isn’t about the real, actual green one. Give Shulkie back to Dan Slott!

  5. Cerebro says

    If anything, Marvel may have given me an excuse to drop another title. I have, actually, grown to like the “Rulk” character; much more so under Parker’s guidance than under Loeb’s. The Red She-Hulk character, on the other hand, remains as interesting to me as a bag of rocks. I don’t really have a strong desire to read a series with her as the headliner. Maybe Parker can work his magic again, but I’ll, probably, be more inclined to spend my $3 on something else.
