Marvel Announces Moon Knight, Mockingbird, and X-Men '92

Marvel has been slowly releasing information about the books of their All-New, All-Different Marvel relaunch, but today, at the Baltimore Retailer SUmmit, they released information about three new books at the same time.


The first one, of course, is Moon Knight by Jeff Lemire and Greg Smallwood. Moon Knight was revamped last year with an acclaimed six-issue run by Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey. After Ellis and Shalvey left, the next six issues were done by Brian Wood and Greg Smallwood and then another five issues by Cullen Bunn and Ron Akins. Colorist Jordie Bellaire has also stayed with the book throughout all three runs and will continue to do so with the next one.

Lemire and Smallwood’s Moon Knight will apparently begin with Marc Spector in an mental asylum. But has he just been admitted...or has he been there the whole time?

Next, we have Mockingbird, her first solo series, written by Chelsea Cain. Cain and artist Joelle Jones previously did a Mockingbird one-shot as part of the SHIELD 50th Anniversary, which explored Bobbi Morse’s history. (It was really good, too.)


Mockingbird is also scheduled to be a part of the Agents of SHIELD spin-off with Lance Hunter, Marvel’s Most Wanted.


The third book announced was a continuation of the Secret Wars digital-first series, X-Men ‘92 by Chris Sims and Chad Bowers, with new artist Alti Firmansyah.

Although the current X-Men ‘92 series takes place on Battleworld, in the specific region called “Westchester,” this continuation is set to take place on their own world, thus letting them visit other areas of the world and do battle with villains like Omega Red and Apocalypse.


What might put some readers off this book, however, is the earlier controversy about Chris Sims’ online harassment of a female writer, even if he did apologize.
