New York City will be infected - and infested, apparently - with a strange new force this October as part of a five-issue weekly Marvel event titled Contagion, according to ComicBook. Some various Defenders alums including Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, along with Moon Knight and the Thing will be teaming up to stop this new threat - that as of yet, doesn't have a name.

"I cannot wait for readers to see this story. It’s a different kind of threat than our heroes are usually up against, and watching all their usual defenses crumble is going to be crazy exciting, and more than a little scary!" said editor Jake Thomas. "We’ve assembled a great team of artists, and Ed Brisson is firing on all cylinders, doing some of the creepiest, funniest, and most emotionally taut writing of his career. It’s everything you want out of a big, crazy Marvel event, all packed into one wild month!"

Contagion will be drawn by a rotating group of artists including Roge Antonioo, Stephen Segovia, Mack Chater, Daian Couciero, and Adam Gorham.

Here is the solicitation for all five October issues. Look for Marvel's full October 2019 solicitations later this month on Newsarama.
