One such comic will be Marvel’s Incoming #1 – covered by us previously here – kicking off yet another Marvel mega-event that will span 2020, while drawing to a.close the 80th anniversary celebrations we’ve been witness to in 2019. Quite the feat, but one I’ll be picking up a few days late this holiday season. Featuring, well… everyone in the Marvel universe by the looks of it.

B. Silva, Andrea Sorrentino, Luciano Vecchio and Annie Wu. contributing too.
