Marvel Comics’ December 2019 solicitations: 4 big takeaways

Get a sneak peek at Marvel Comics’ December 2019 comics and cover art.

It’s that time of the month again when solicitations reveal tidbits about our favorite series and cover artists get to shine. Today, Marvel Comics has released their December 2019 solicitations. Below you’ll find info on each book to close out the year, and it’s a big one thanks to Marvel’s 80th anniversary. Some of these solicitations have already been released by Marvel, but here’s a breakdown of some of the bigger reveals. Here are my four big takeaways.

The first of a few big surprises is the new 2099 books and the creators behind them. Chip Zdarsky will be writing a Doom 2099 book with Marco Castiello on art, Jody Houser is writing Venom 2099 with Francecso Mobili, and finally, Nick Spencer is taking over Spider-Man 2099 with Ose Carlos Silva. The 2099 future appears to be dying and these new books centered on 2099 will see that timeline potentially end.

Other big news is in the realm of X-Men and if you’ve been reading House of X and Powers of X you probably already know that. The X-Men solicit reveals the X-Men are the most powerful heroes of the dominant species on the planet” and I wonder what the Avengers think about that. It also reveals a new villain emerges in the Savage Land. Over in Ed Brisson’s New Mutants #3, Armor is seeking new mutants who have chosen not to live in Krakoa (and if you read House of X this week you know most of the Earth’s mutants have migrated there). It appears New Mutants will be space-focused since issue #4 speaks about the team going to the Shi’ar Galaxy. Then, over in Fallen Angels #3 and #4 we learn Psylocke is the leader molding the team, but her past is haunting her. X-Force appears to be about humans vs. mutants as they strike back after losing a mutant. I wonder who…

Then, Matthew Rosenberg appears to be spearheading the Annihilation event that starts in November with two books (Silver Surfer teams up with Annihilus…huh!?) while Dan Abnett, Christos Gage, and Michael Moreci are joining him with one-shot stories. An enemy named the Scourge is wreaking havoc and the title characters of these one-shots–Silver Surfer, Fantastic Four, Beta Ray Bill, and Nova–are the universe’s only hope.


Listen to the latest episode of our weekly Comics podcast where we interview Loki writer Daniel Kibblesmith

Over in the Star Wars corner of Marvel, it appears things are gearing up for a big shift come January. In a one-shot called Star Wars Saga #1, writer Jess Harrold is recapping what has gone on in Marvel Star Wars comics so far. It’s pointed out that the “stage is set for the next great chapter” and this recap book is necessary to get us ready for what Marvel has coming next. Is it possible they’ll explore a different time period? Charles Soule is kicking off his Rise of Kylo Ren four-part series and he’s also contributing to a 52-page one-shot called Star Wars: Empire Ascendant with other creators like Greg Pak, Simon Spurrier, Ethan Sacks, Luke Ross, and Roland Boschi joining in the anthology fun. Target Vader is also ending and Doctor Aphra‘s solicit says, “All good things must come to an end” which makes you wonder if that series is done too. Check back here at AiPT! as we get closer to January solicitations as it sounds like big news is coming soon.

There are of course more nuggets to be found in the below solicitations and I recommend you check them all out along with the great cover art.
