Marvel announces details on several new projects coming straight out of Krakoa.
The Unity Squad will return in a new title later this year as a part of the Fall of X event, Marvel revealed yesterday during a virtual event celebrating the 60th anniversary of the X-Men.
Uncanny Avengers will return to store shelves starting in August by the team of Gerry Duggan and Javier Garron. But before that they’ll appear in a story in Marvel’s Avengers/X-Men Free Comic Book Day title coming in May, and the need for their return will be revealed in July’s X-Men: Hellfire Gala one-shot, which kicks off the Fall of X storyline.
“Everything we’ve been working towards in our third act is coming to a head this summer,” Duggan said. “The Uncanny Avengers have existed to provide an example of unity between humanity and mutantdom, and they will need to work extra hard at that now as relationships and friendships have frayed in the events of Fall of X.”

IDW will publish the six-issue ‘Cat Fight’ starting in May.
Andrew Wheeler, writer of one of Smash Pages’ favorites, Sins of the Black Flamingo, is teaming up with Ilias Kyriazis (Collapser, Secret Identities) on a new heist thriller featuring cat burglars — cat-themed cat burglars. Cat Fight “follows a debonaire jewel thief whose decadent sensibilities and taste for high-powered thrills inadvertently lead him down a path of illicit intrigue.”

Cat Fight is an action thriller about family and connection in an age of disconnection, a vacation from gray skies and ordinary lives,” Wheeler said. “The art team has done an incredible job bringing this breakneck ride to life. It’s John Wick meets Kill Bill meets…well, Cats!”
