Prayers Answered: Dan Abnett Back On Marvel Cosmic With Annihilation: Scourge

Thank you, Marvel! clap clap clap clap clap! Thank you, Marvel! clap clap clap clap clap!

Our prayers have been answered as Dan Abnett is announced to return to Marvel Cosmic with the upcoming Annihilation: Scourge event!

Abnett is slated to write the Annihilation - Scourge: Silver Surfer title!

Marvel Comics released the December solicits where, in addition to Silver Surfer, titles include Nova, Beta Ray Bill, and Fantastic Four, with the solicit for Source Omega also released.

Details leaked through Amazon also revealed an Annihilation: Agenda TPB which collects: ANNIHILATION (2019) ALPHA 1, A1-E1.

Matthew Rosenberg, writer of the Nova one shot, is also kicking off the event with Annihilation: Alpha in November.

"The original Annihilation and Annihilation Conquest are some of my favorite Marvel books of all time because they are so big in scale and yet so full of great characters and real drama," Rosenberg tells Newsarama. "That's what we're doing here. It's huge stakes, brutal action, universe destroying threats, and some of the best heroes (and not-quite heroes) the Marvel Universe has to offer thrown headfirst at it. We're definitely paying tribute to the original Annihilation books, but I think for fans of those books they will be shocked at where this goes."

Sounds awesome!

And great to see Dan Abnett back!

We've also been talking about bringing back the Cosmic Book News forums! Stay tuned!
