“This is by far the most complex and complicated and difficult book I’ve ever had to assemble,” Executive Editor Tom Breevort told the New York Times when discussing Marvel Comics #1000. The publisher began teasing the anthology in May, with ads in comics featuring a variety of different creative teams, the date of August 2019 and backgrounds filled with historic covers from Marvel's 80 years of publishing. Each of the 80 creative teams will tell a one-page story in the comic.
Marvel Comics #1000 will start from 1939 and work its way to the present day, with each page correlating to one year in Marvel's history. Along with celebrity contributors are also names from Marvel's storied past -- George Perez, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Kurt Busiek, Walter Simonson and more.
Marvel Comics #1001 goes on sale in September from Marvel Comics.
