Continuing the storied tradition of starting new volumes less than two (2) issues into their first series, both “Uncanny Inhumans” and “A-Force” will be joining the ‘All-New, All-Different Marvel’ come the fall.
“A-Force,” announced via the comic news powerhouse Glamour, will be written by the co-writer of the first volume’s (only) issue, G. Willow Wilson, with an artist to be named later. “A-Force” is focused around a team of female Avengers, including She-Hulk, Medusa, and Captain Marvel.
“Uncanny Inhumans,” which got a #0 issue and a Free Comic Book Day teaser, will be written by Marvel’s go-to Inhumans scribe Charles Soule, and illustrated by Steve McNiven. Other comic book journalism mainstay Mashable leads you to believe that McNiven is only inking the book, but that’s because they don’t really know how comics are made.
The big takeaway from the “Uncanny Inhumans” announcement is that Hank McCoy, the mutant known as Beast, is joining the team, along with the already mentioned Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch. This serves to do a few things: it keeps beloved, but licensed to Fox, characters out of books that don’t benefit Marvel Studios’ bottom line, but it also gives a lesser title some much needed starpower. Whether or not Beast will be made an Inhuman remains to be seen, but it should be noted that Johnny Storm is part of the team, and is not an Inhuman.
Stay tuned for another announcement (probably) later today.
