Marvel Comics will set the stage for the next major event to take place in the Marvel Universe in Incoming #1 this December. On an episode of Marvel's Pull List, hosts Ryan Penagos and Tucker Markus revealed that the issue begins as a murder mystery and soon escalates into a story on a cosmic scale. The issue features the writing of Al Ewing, Dan Slott, Chip Zdarsky, Kelly Thompson, Greg Pak, Eve L. Ewing, Matt Rosenberg, Ed Brisson, Saladin Ahmed, Tini Howard, Jonathan Hickman, Donny Cates, and Jason Aaron, with art by Humberto Ramos, Jim Cheung, and others, and a cover by Patrick Gleason, which you can see below.

It sounds like an issue that Marvel diehards won't want to miss.
The official solicitation text teases that "one will unite them." Who that "one" is remains a mystery that fans will have to speculate about for the next few months. Marvel has been promoting the issue with a series of mysterious teasers for the past month. The story of Incoming seems to follow-up on the plot threads Al Ewing laid down in Marvel Comics #1000.
