Marvel exclusive writer Kelly Thompson says she is working on two unnannounced Marvel books, with the potential for a third. The writer revealed it in response to a fan Q&A on her Tumblr.

"I don’t know what constitutes a 'Fresh Start' book technically but yes, I am already writing two new (unannounced) Marvel books, and developing a third that I feel pretty confident is going to happen…so I think the answer is yes," Thompson replied.

"I’m not sure when they’re going to be announced though," Thompson continued. "I’m hoping one will be in March, but it might be summer for a couple of them. :("

Thompson, who signed an exclusive with Marvel back in January, is currently writing the Rogue & Gambit miniseries, and has a story in the X-Men Wedding Special #1. Her last ongoing series, Hawkeye, ended earlier this month. In the announcement of her exclusive, Marvel said "[i]n the coming months and at San Diego Comic Con this summer, Marvel will reveal more of Thompson’s exciting work."

“Marvel has been incredibly supportive of and nurturing of my work as a creator and I really cannot wait for everything that's to come, but waiting to announce projects is sort of like living in a delicious hell,” said Thompson at the time. “It’s torture not to be able to share the things you know with the people you know are going to love them, but it's also insanely cool not only to know those secrets but to be a creator of said secrets. And right at this moment...all I can say is that there are a lot of cool secrets to come, and some of them are even secrets I got to help create.”
