"After [Event Leviathan] #6, people will see that the mystery is solved," Bendis told CBR. "But the mystery then reveals, like eight more giant stories that they have to pursue and follow through. A lot of these characters have been touched or altered by this story dramatically. So Leviathan Dawn is a brand-new chapter; it’s the next day, what happens now."

"For all the characters of Event Leviathan, including Leviathan itself, what are they going to do now that their first plan wasn’t immediately successful other than they have arrived and changed the DC landscape?" he continued. "What will they do now and what will be the form of the official pushback against this? How will the intelligence gather and fight back now that everything has been dismantled? So now a new organization for the good guys will rise up and you’ll find out who’s in it, who made the cut, in Leviathan Dawn, which is another fully painted Alex Maleev graphic event!"
