Marvel's first official press release for Marvel NOW! their linewide revamp (but not reboot) came with a reworked version of CCO Joe Quesada's promotional image (now with logo!) and largely the same information we already had. Then we got toward the bottom and saw a listing for New Avengers #1. One of our ten unanswered questions has been partially answered. Jonathan Hickman, already announced as teaming with Jerome Opeña on Avengers #1 in December 2012, will also be writing New Avengers #1 in January, with art by Steve Epting. The release doesn't give any more information about the series, but does reiterate that new #1s will be launching under the Marvel NOW! banner "nearly every week through February" starting with Uncanny Avengers #1 on October 10, 2012. Comic shops will be allowed to start selling the issue on Tuesday October 9, 2012 if they have an advance release party. Stay tuned for much more on Marvel NOW! throughout the day including in-depth interviews with Tom Brevoort and Joe Quesada! More from Newsarama:
