July is going to be a big month for Marvel Comics. This week, Marvel made a series of announcement involving new series and new storylines debuting after the conclusion of the War of the Realms event.
The Jonathan Hickman era of X-Men begins in two six-issue miniseries. House of X with artist Pepe Larraz reveals Professor X’s grand plans for mutants. Powers of X with artist RB Silva reveals the hidden past, present, and future of mutants in the Marvel universe.
Loki gets a new series in July from writer Dan Kibblesmith and artists Oscar Bazaldua. Apparently resurrected after dying in War of the Realms #1, Loki is burdened with new responsibility and Thor plans to make sure his brother follows through.
Also spinning out of War of the Realms is Punisher Kill Crew by Gerry Duggan and Juan Ferreya. The Punisher is on a new quest for revenge, but this time he’s taking on gods and monsters with a van full of orphans.
Donny Cates and Cory Smith begin a new story teasing the death of Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy #7. The Thing tries to enjoy his honeymoon but winds up fighting the Hulk in Fantastic Four #12 from writer Dan Slott and artist Sean Izaakse. Invisible Woman gets her own solo series with writer Mark Waid and artist Mattia De Iulis.
