At NYCC, Marvel reveals more details about the upcoming storyline that springs from ‘Amazing Spider-Man.’
Today at the New York Comic Con, Marvel shared more about the upcoming Gang War crossover that’ll run through Amazing Spider-Man and related titles.
The crossover, which kicks off in December after a month of set-up in November, was first announced this summer at the San Diego Comic Con. The story will feature the gang lords of New York, including the Owl, Hobgoblin and Mr. Negative, as well as factions like AIM and Hydra, waging war against each other. It’ll be up to two Spider-Men, Peter Parker and Miles Morales, as well as She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, Daredevil and more, to stop them.
At NYCC, Marvel announced that Mary Jane Watson will get involved in the war, starring a Jackpot one-shot by Celeste Bronfman and Joey Vazquez. It features a cover by Pablo Villalobos, and it hits stores on Jan. 17:

The Marvel Unlimited series gets a print sequel just in time for Halloween.
Following a collection of the Marvel Unlimited series in September, Marvel will release a new four-issue Spine-Tingling Spider-Man miniseries starting in October.
The digital series by writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Juan Ferreyra put Peter Parker through the ringer, and it looks like it only gets worse for the wall-crawler as he ends up powerless in a haunted house.
“We’re putting Peter through a grueling horror movie grinder, and that resilient spirit of his will be tested like never before,” Ahmed said. “I tapped into some darkness writing this, but the real star here is Juan’s mind-blowing, visionary work—which is genuinely some of the best Spider-art I’ve ever seen.”

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.”

The Vietnamese character now has a first name more befitting of her background and culture.
A classic New Mutant received a name change — well, more of a name tweak — in a recent Marvel Unlimited Infinity Comic. Karma, whose real name was Xi’an, is now Xuân.
The Magic Fish creator Trung Le Nguyen, who is also Vietnamese like the character, wrote and drew “Karma in Love,” the story where the new name was noted. He spoke to Marvel.com about the change.
“I’ve had quite a journey around Karma’s civilian name. As a reader who spoke Vietnamese as a child, it was really difficult for me to connect with Karma because I knew her name was gibberish,” he said, noting that the “sh” sound in “Xi’an,” which was shown to be pronounced as “Shan” in various comics, didn’t exist in the Vietnamese language.

David Pepose, Farid Karami and Alan Robinson present a story featuring Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and more.
Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort revealed in his Substack newsletter over the weekend plans for a new Infinity Comics series called Avengers Unlimited.
“The idea is to curate a mixture of longer and short stories from all across the length and breadth of the Avengers concept,” Brevoort explained. “But they’re all new, all designed for this format, and all taking place within current mainstream Marvel continuity.”
Marvel’s Infinity Comics line lives on its Marvel Unlimited service and offers “vertical stories” formatted to easily scroll through on a mobile device. Avengers Unlimited follows last year’s X-Men Unlimited, which featured various mutant characters by rotating creative teams.

Anthony Oliveira, Jethro Morales and the late Dijjo Lima present a new story featuring Wiccan, Hulkling, Iron Lad, Kate Bishop, America Chavez and more.
The Young Avengers have made their dramatic return as a part of Marvel Unlimited’s Infinity Comics line, following the conclusion of the Iceman story that ran under the Marvel’s Voices banner on the digital comics site.
Writer Anthony Oliveira and artist Jethro Morales bring together several Young Avengers members from various incarnations of the team, including Wiccan, Hulkling, Hawkeye, Iron Lad, America Chavez, Prodigy, Speed and Cassie Lang (presumably under her Stinger moniker, based on the costume she’s wearing in the promotional art).
The story is also significant for featuring some of the last coloring work by Dijjo Lima, who passed away last month. “Our first issue also features some of Dijjo Lima’s last colors, and I am so grateful and honored to have a gift like that grace a script I worked on. I will be forever thankful,” Oliveira told Marvel.com.

A new line-up of romance comics debut on the Marvel Unlimited app, with the first story featuring Ms. Marvel and Red Dagger.
Love is in the app — the Marvel Unlimited app — as Marvel announces a new line of Infinity Comics featuring Ms. Marvel, Red Dagger, Viv Vision, Wolverine and more, as they look for romance in all the right places. Love Unlimited kicked off last week.
The first comic features Ms. Marvel and Red Dagger, whose chemistry is “off the scale” in a new comic by Nadia Shammas, Natacha Bustos and Ian Herring.
“This [arc] puts Ms. Marvel and Red Dagger in each other’s paths while trying to chase down the same villain,” Shammas said. “The last time they saw each other, things ended awkwardly and were unresolved. That tension, that push-pull, is totally the heart of this dynamic. Will they deny the feelings that are already there? Can they make that final leap? Read to find out.”

A four-part Iceman story by Luciano Vecchio comes to Infinity Comics for Pride Month.
Marvel has published several Marvel’s Voices anthologies over the last few years that focus on underrepresented characters and creators. Now that initiative is expanding to digital, as Marvel has announced new Marvel’s Voices stories as part of their Infinity Comics line on Marvel Unlimited.
The first, which launches during Pride Month, is a four-part Iceman story by Luciano Vecchio.
“As a queer creator, getting the chance to work as writer/artist on one of my favorite characters, and be part of the cultural conversation about queer rep in mainstream media with my own work, feels necessary and vital for me,” Vecchio told Out Magazine. “I had the chance before in the Marvel’s Voices specials to express my ideas about LGBTQ+ superheroes as a collective, and now I get to explore the individual experience of Iceman, which isn’t exchangeable to that of any other character.”
