Marvel Comics has officially announced the new Annihilation event, with the "Scourge Alpha" prelude, which was previously teased at the San Diego Comic-Con, where we see Richard Rider Nova is front and center in the variant cover.
Matthew Rosenberg is writing who is known for the Punisher and X-Men comics, with art by Juanan Ramirez who is known for Iron Man, Venom, Fantastic Four and more.
Details leaked through Amazon also revealed an Annihilation: Agenda TPB which collects: ANNIHILATION (2019) ALPHA 1, A1-E1.
We see the covers below also feature Annihilus, Blastaar, Silver Surfer, Beta Ray Bill, and the Fantastic Four.
Just yesterday also saw rumors regarding Richard Rider Nova in the MCU.
Cosmic Book News fans will recall that the 2005-6 Annihilation event comics brought Richard Rider to the forefront of the Marvel Cosmic universe, which eventually led to the stellar 2007 Nova series from Abnett and Lanning and lots more.
Just judging from the solicit and covers below, this new Annihilation event looks to be just as good, with the bonus that it will feature the Fantastic Four. The original Annihilation didn't connect at all to Earth, so hopefully, this comes off even better (if possible).
Annihilation: Scourge Alpha #1 gets released in November.
Here is the solicit and covers for Annihilation: Scourge Alpha #1:
