Solicitations for December 2021
Here's all the stuff by me that'll be roaring your way this December, including the debut of a couple of big new series. As I've said, AVENGERS FOREVER will very quickly begin to tie together threads from different touchstone series from throughout my time at Marvel. KING CONAN has me reuniting with the incredible art team of Mahmud Asrar and Matt Wilson for another sojourn with one of my all-time favorite characters from any medium. And AVENGERS #51 features the new Multiversal Masters of Evil in action against the Mightiest Heroes of the 616.
To hear more of my thoughts on these books and to get regular updates on all my new and upcoming projects, make sure you're subscribed to my free newsletter, Beard Missives.

AN ALL-NEW SERIES STARRING THE AVENGERS OF THE MULTIVERSE!
On a quest for cosmic vengeance, Ghost Rider finds himself roaring through the wasteland on a ruined Earth, where the great age of heroes never came to be, where hope is a four-letter word and where his only ally in the coming battle against the greatest villains any universe has ever seen is the world’s most wanted archaeologist, Tony Stark…the Invincible Ant-Man. Spinning out of the cataclysmic events of AVENGERS #750 and operating in lockstep with the prime AVENGERS series, the next great Avengers saga begins here, as the Mightiest Heroes of every Earth begin to assemble.
