We first got a sneak peek at the next Avengers event at the Diamond Retailer Summit at Las Vegas, and now Marvel Comics has officially announced “Time Runs Out.”
This September sees Jonathan Hickman time-jump Avengers #35 and New Avengers #24 eight months into the future.
Each issue will be double-sized as well.
“After the cataclysmic events of the Avengers tie-in to Original Sin and the revelation as to what the Illuminati has been up to all this time, we jump the storyline ahead to the moment where time runs out for everybody,” Marvel Senior VP – Executive Editor Tom Brevoort revealed to Marvel.com. “In addition to setting the table for the astonishing climax of Jonathan Hickman’s run, we’ll also be providing a glimpse into the immediate future of our characters and what changes await them over the course of the next eight months of publishing. This isn’t some maybe-future; this is the real deal, what’s awaiting the Marvel Universe in the coming year.”
Marvel also teased that the time-jump will feature a new roster of teams, and that the issues will tie into something coming in May 2015, which has previously said will force Marvel to do “something the company has never done in its 75 years.”
The following covers for Avengers #35, illustrated by Jim Cheung, and New Avengers #24, with art by Mike Deodato, were also revealed.
