It Starts NOW! - Marvel NOW! Point One
Posted by Brant W. Fowler
All week long, Marvel has been releasing teasers of Marvel Now! Point One #1, which hits stores on October 17th. The issue, which features the work of various superstar writers and artists, was first announced in July, but little was known about it. The creators involved were announced at the time, but not what they would be contributing to the one-shot. The teasers this week have gradually revealed what stories each creator is working on for the book, which will tease upcoming titles in the Marvel NOW! event. Here I've compiled all of them for you in one quick and easy look:
MARVEL NOW! POINT ONE #1 (AUG120546)
Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS, MATT FRACTION, JEPH LOEB, NICK SPENCER, KIERON GILLEN & DENNIS HOPELESS
Art by STEVE MCNIVEN, MICHAEL ALLRED, ED MCGUINNESS, LUKE ROSS, JAMIE MCKELVIE & GABRIEL HERNANDEZ WALTA
FOC - 9/17/12, ON SALE - 10/17/12
So to recap, what it looks like we can expect is an Ant-Man story from Fraction & Allred, an Agent Coulson story by Spencer and Ross as we reported earlier today, Loeb and McGuinness on a Nova story, a Kid Loki and Miss America Chavez story from Gillen and McKelvie, and two undetermined stories by the teams of Bendis & McNiven and Hopeless & Hernandez.
If you look at the previously solicited cover of Marvel NOW! Point One (below) you'll notice Star-Lord of the Guardians of the Galaxy and Cable now of Cable & X-Force present. One could assume that these final two teasers somehow point (no pun intended) to stories involving those characters or universes given the correlation. Bendis has been writing the GotG in Avengers Assemble, and Hopeless is the writer of the aforementioned and upcoming Cable & X-Force. But the images aren't quite clear enough to give a definitive answer on that. I guess we'll have to wait and see when Marvel confirms all of these.
