Marvel Comics 2020 event has already begun in a sense thanks to the Incoming! #1 issue which sets up a conflict for cosmic lovers. The murder mystery issue is a good one–my review talks about how impressive it is they pulled it off–and it will directly lead into the April event. Today, Marvel released a new teaser trailer to kick things off with Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort using the words “Earth-shattering” a few times. Will Earth be split over the event? The Empyre font seems to suggest something is shattering!
The event appears to be tying the Avengers and Fantastic Four together in the battle of the ages. It’s worth noting the very cool logo Marvel has come up with that combines the “A” and the “4” for the two teams.
For all the details read the press release below.
