Marvel, who lately like to do their marketing and PR in series, is holding another press conference call under the "Marvel Universe: The Next Big Thing" banner. (Apparently, the upcoming Death of Dracula isn’t the only “next big thing”, but instead a “next big thing”).

Today’s call – starting any second – focuses on Avengers: Children’s Crusade, the upcoming bi-monthly limited series by Young Avengers creators Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung.

Heinberg and Vice-President Executive Editor Tom Brevoort will be on the call taking questions from the press, and Newsarama is there live! as we speak with the play-by-play.

Click on the Cover-It-Live event box right below to follow along. And stayed tuned to the end of the call for the debut of a few new images from the series.

Here’s what Marvel had to say about the series in their announcement about the call:

“When Wiccan's reality-altering powers begin to rival those of the Scarlet Witch, the young hero sets out on a quest to find her that spans the Marvel Universe and pits Wiccan against both the Avengers and the Young Avengers.  But will Wiccan's desire to solve the mystery of his parentage be his salvation or his undoing?  This self-contained Marvel maxi-series reintroduces and redefines the Young Avengers and the Scarlet Witch for the Heroic Age and is essential reading for any Avengers fan.”
