Following news that superstar comics writer Jonathan Hickman will return to Marvel Comics, the publisher has revealed when fans will be able to learn the details of that project.
Marvel Entertainment says that more information about the project will materialize at this weekend's C2E2 in Chicago during its "Marvel Comics: Next Big Thing" panel, which will be held from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM CDT on Saturday, March 23.
The teases for Hickman's return started with last week's Marvel comics, which contained an ominous message: "When two aggressive species share the same environment, evolution demands adaptation or dominance." It was then revealed in this week's books that the message was related to Hickman.
It's not entirely clear at this time what comic Hickman will helm. However, there's a lot about the language of that initial tease that suggests it has something to do with the X-Men, though some fans think it might relate to the Eternals or Inhumans. Still, Hickman is a high-profile writer, and it's likely that Marvel will be aiming to put him on a big book and -- potentially -- even an event of some sort.
Hickman has helmed a number of high-profile books for Marvel in the past, including Fantastic Four, The Avengers and The New Avengers. He was also responsible for two major events: 2013's Infinity and 2015's Secret Hickman is also known for his creator-owned work at Image Comics. Those titles have included East of West, The Manhattan Projects and The Nightly News.
Hickman's mystery book is scheduled for release in July.
