Marvel Comics' 2099 revival just got bigger with the addition of four December one-shots focusing on that era's Victor Von Doom, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, and Venom. Announced on the company's website ahead of the full reveal of their December 2019 solicitations at 12 p.m. EST today, the four one-shots - Doom 2099, Ghost Rider 2099, Spider-Man 2099, and Venom 2099 - will continue the event which begins in November 6's Amazing Spider-Man #33, and is now revealed to wrap up with 2099 Omega #1.
"I loved the original Doom 2099, so this is a total dream project, getting to help reinvent the world," said Chip Zdarsky, who is writing that one-shot. "In our one-shot we do our best to really hold onto the spirit of the original, of Victor Von Doom starting from the bottom, while giving it some new twists, like his astounding 2099 hip hop career."
Zdarsky will be working with artist Marco Castiello on Doom 2099.
Spider-Man 2099 #1 by writer Nick Spencer and artist Jose Carlos Silva will "follow this universe's Spider-Man Miguel O'Hara as he struggles to save the Marvel Universe from an uncertain future."
Ghost Rider writer Ed Brisson will pull double-duty, writing Ghost Rider 2099 with artist Damian Couceiro.
"In Ghost Rider 2099, we reimagine the origin of Ghost Rider that pays homage to the '90s series, but still pushes the character in a new and exciting direction," said Brisson. "Lots of cameos for sharp-eyed readers!"
Venom 2099 will be by writer Jody Houser and artist Francesco Mobili.
The event will wrap up with 2099 Omega #1 by Spencer and artist Gerardo Sandoval, which according to Marvel "teases a future 'that ends here' and is being run by Doctor Doom -- with no heroes to save it!"
