The four-issue series will tie into the ‘Fall of X’ event.
Louise Simonson, legendary Marvel editor and former writer of X-Factor, will return to a character near and dear to her heart in Jean Grey, a four-issue miniseries with artist Bernard Chang.
The series will launch in August and tie into Fall of X, which Marvel.com describes as a “dark new age of mutantkind” and the potential end of Krakoa. To help save mutantkind, Jean Grey will have to look to her past to save the future, as the series explores different dark events in Jean Grey’s life.
“I loved writing X-Factor and Jean was a pivotal part of those stories, from the escape from her Phoenix-created cocoon to her life and death battle with the Goblin Queen in Inferno. So It’s really exciting to explore Jean’s part in this new mega-adventure,” Simonson said.

‘Marvel’s Voices: Pride’ will arrive in June, along with several Pride-themed variant covers.
Marvel has announced details for this year’s Pride special, which will once again come under the Marvel’s Voices banner in June. And like previous specials, which introduced new characters like Escapade and Somnus, this one also will include several character and creator debuts.
Probably the biggest news is that the special will introduce a new X-Men title that will debut later this year from Steve Foxe and Rosi Kampe. Their story will feature Gimmick, one of the Children of the Atom, who you might remember as being teased as the X-Men’s sidekicks before debuting (they all looked liked versions of the original X-Men) and starred in their own miniseries in 2020. The only true mutant on the team was Gimmick, who was later invited to the Hellfire Gala by Storm. I don’t think we’ve seen much of this team since they were introduced.

The six-issue anthology series debuts in June.
Following in the footsteps of Superman and Batman, Wonder Woman has staked out her portion of the color wheel with Wonder Woman: Black & Gold.
The six-issue anthology series will feature stories by various creators, told in two colors — black and gold, “the color of her famous lasso.”
For the first issue, DC has recruited John Arcudi, Becky Cloonan, Amy Reeder and more to tell stories featuring the Amazon.

New monthly series begins in February.
Back when Brian Michael Bendis first announced his curated imprint for DC, Wonder Comics, he promised an Amethyst solo series was coming. At New York Comic Con this weekend, DC revealed that Amy Reeder of Rocketgirl and Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur fame, will write, draw and color the ongoing series.
“When I develop DC books one thing I try to achieve is that sense you got when Apple announced products that were so unexpected and yet made so much sense that you wondered how you got this far in life without it,” said editor Andy Khouri. “That is 100% Amy Reeder writing and drawing Amethyst.”

Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder’s time-traveling teen returns this summer.
Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder’s Kickstarter-turned-Image Comics series “Rocket Girl” returns in August with issue #8.
“I don’t mean to sound alarmist, but everything we’ve done so far with ‘Rocket Girl’ has been leading up to these next few, completed issues,” said Reeder in a press release. “Major things are about to happen! And I for one wouldn’t want to hear the gossip second-hand at the water cooler.”
“Rocket Girl” debuted back in 2013, following a successful Kickstarter for the first issue. The book stars DaYoung Johansson, a teenaged cop from the future who goes back to 1986 to investigate “crimes against time.” The project followed the duo’s work on “Halloween Eve” and preceded their all-ages Marvel title, “Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.”
