Marvel will close out their big 2019 with an event that will not only shock fans regarding its central mystery but will also set up Marvel's plans for 2020 in a huge way, and the series is called Incoming. Marvel is holding details close to the chest regarding Incoming, but we do know that it will be connecting the dots between all the big storylines and characters from Marvel's 2019 so far, and it will feature characters from across the Marvel Universe, as reflected on the book's main cover. Now we've got your exclusive first look at the new variant cover by artist Jim Cheung and colorist Ramulo Fajardo, which you can see below.
The new cover features heroes from all across the comics universe, including Spider-Man, Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Valkyrie, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Storm, Wolverine, Wiccan, Hulkling, Captain America, Deadpool, Black Panther, and The Thing, with Spidey leading the charge. We're not sure what catchphrase he used to get everyone to leap into acti5on, as we're pretty sure Cap has the whole Avengers Assemble thing on lock.
The cover is definitely slick and shows just how many characters this event will touch once all is said and done, and you can check out the new cover in the image below.
Incoming #1 is written by Al Ewing and more, with art from Humberto Ramos and more, and a cover by Patrick Gleason, and you can check out the official description below.
