Marvel's "100th Anniversary"? How Did I Miss This News?

I just randomly came across this article:

This sounds really cool, but it's also the first time I've heard of any part of this. How did I miss this news?

The concept of the Marvel 100th Anniversary books is intriguing enough: let talented up-and-coming creators give readers their take on what the Marvel Universe might be like in the next 25 years. Writer Jen Van Meter and artist Joanna Estep have taken on Marvel's First Family in the inaugural issue. In terms of execution, it's a hit.... The creative team sets up an extremely intriguing new team without actually focusing on them much. The new Fantastic Four includes the children of Val Richards and an unspecified Banner (which would be fascinating enough by itself), Victoria Harkness as the Enchantress, and a brand new Human Torch named Lee Minh Cam.


I took to the Googles, and In case I'm not alone in having missed this, here is Marvel's press release from back in April:

Most relevant is this:

Each week in July sees a new 100th Anniversary Special featuring a team or solo hero as they might appear in their far-flung future. It's not only an opportunity to muse on the future of some iconic characters, but a chance to see some of the most exciting creative talents of today set loose on five wildly imaginative stories.


The article goes on to say that in addition to FF, the story continues with Guardians of the Galaxy 100th Anniversary, and there are also 100th Anniversary X-Men, Avengers and Spider-Man.
