All the stuff by me that's coming your way in November. Let's get right to it.
Like last month, there's only one new issue from me this month. But it's an issue that's the size of an entire mini-series. AVENGERS #50/750 is by far the most humongous single comic I've ever written, jam-packed with all manner of cosmic craziness and surprises, as drawn by an all-star collection of Earth's Mightiest Artists, beginning a story that will be exploding for about the next year at least, here in AVENGERS and.... elsewhere. In other words, this one is big and gorgeous and as fun as we all could make it.

Onto the trades. The ninth volume of my AVENGERS run, collecting "World War She-Hulk," is being advance solicited for January. This is the arc that kicked off right after HEROES REBORN, the first story I wrote in 2021, and it's maybe my favorite arc of my AVENGERS so far. Artist Javier Garrón went above and beyond on this one, killing every issue, of what is a fast-paced, globe-trotting action and espionage story, featuring a Red Room-brainwashed She-Hulk, the Winter Guard, Atlantis and the dark and drunken ruminations of Gorilla Man.

World War She-Hulk! The planet has become more fractured and volatile than ever — especially for the Avengers. And when She-Hulk is declared a global menace, Russia’s mightiest heroes, the Winter Guard, are tasked with bringing her to justice! Now, Jen Walters will face a fate that not even a Hulk could hope to endure. The Red Room is the secret furnace where some of the world’s greatest assassins and super-killers have been forged — and it will transform Jen into something terrifying. The Winter Hulk is about to be unleashed on the world — including a dark and bloody mission beneath the waves in Atlantis! And the only one who may be able to stop her is…Gorilla-Man? No matter who wins, She-Hulk and the Avengers will be changed forever! Collecting AVENGERS (2018) #46-50.

And I'm only a small part of this one, but I'm still super proud of all of my time on the STAR WARS line. This is an Omnibus collection of Kieron Gillen's amazing DARTH VADER series, coming in April, that includes the Vader Down crossover he and I cooked up together (over dinner at a Brazilian steakhouse), maybe my favorite story from all the work I did in a galaxy far, far away.

One of the greatest antagonists in all of fiction rises again! Fresh from a stinging defeat at the hands of the Rebel Alliance, Darth Vader must reassert the Empire’s iron grip on the galaxy. But will his personal desire for vengeance against the young Jedi who destroyed the Death Star distract from Vader’s duty to the Emperor? As a fateful quest begins, the Dark Lord of the Sith will face fresh threats to his power. And as other villains old and new play their part — from Boba Fett and Jabba the Hutt to diabolical debutant Doctor Aphra and the killer droids Triple-Zero and BeeTee-One — will Vader’s imperial march continue, or will his schemes prove his undoing?
