Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, Executive Editor Nick Lowe, Amazing Spider-Man writer Zeb Wells and more were on hand in San Diego at Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel to announce Gang War, a crossover event springing from Wells’ work with John Romita Jr. on ASM.

Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly and Juann Cabal will show readers a throwdown at the end of the Marvel timeline.
Marvel’s Timeless, a one-shot they’ve released in December to tease storylines for the coming year, will return in December, the publisher announced in San Diego.
For the last two years, the one-shot has been written by Jed Mackay and featured Kang. This year, Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly will write it, with Juann Cabal on art. The comic will feature the “Earth’s only surviving super hero,” a familiar-looking one named Power Man, who will do battle with Immortal Moon Knight, a “cruel god-like” being who also looks very familiar.

“If you have ever found yourself wondering, ‘Why is there no comic book about a vigilante hero who smashes people’s faces in with a bowling ball?’ you are in LUCK, bruv!”
A new hero who uses a bowling ball to fight Nazis will make his debut in November at Image Comics.
Actor and comedian Andy Samburg, who you know from Saturday Night Live and those Corona ads with Snoop Dogg, will team with X-Force/Scumbag writer Rick Remender, Fallout Boy guitarist Joe Trohman and Scumbag artist Roland Boschi on The Holy Roller.
“If you have ever found yourself wondering, ‘Why is there no comic book about a vigilante hero who smashes people’s faces in with a bowling ball?’ you are in LUCK, bruv!” said Samberg.
“Sometimes the best stories start off as silly, over-the-top ideas that after a little while become clear to everyone in the room are actually great. This is one of those,” said Remender. “This is a hilarious and poignant story, full of big action, and told from a place of real passion.”

Kevin Eastman, Tom Waltz, Ben Bishop and company will continue the story in ‘Re-Evolution.’
Casey Marie Jones and the next generation of Ninja Turtles will return for another round of turtle power in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin II – Re-Evolution.
The next chapter is co-written by TMNT co-creator Eastman and Tom Waltz, illustrated by Ben Bishop, Esau Escorza and Isaac Escorza, colored by Luis Antonio Delgado and lettered by Shawn Lee.
“The real heart and soul for me with dusting off and bringing The Last Ronin to life three years ago was my belief that ‘Every beginning must have an end,’” said Eastman. “With all the respect in the world for my co-creator Peter Laird, I wanted to bring full circle to what we started in 1984 and set out to do in 1987. With The Last Ronin, with my friend Tom Waltz and an incredible gathering of brilliant artisans, we accomplished that 33 years later. A very fitting end indeed.”
