Marvel Comics released a mysterious teaser for Annihilation, a follow-up to the 2006 cosmic crossover event of the same name. The teaser comes on the heels of the publisher's Marvel Comics: Retailer Panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
Marvel revealed the teaser by artist Ariel Olivetti of Annihilus, the bug-like galactic villain from the Negative Zone that is responsible for the Annihilation Wave that wreaked havoc during the original Annihilation event.
"Annihilation Is Only the Beginning..." is found at the top of the image, with Annihilus crouching from a piece of space rock in the middle. The date for the event is November of this year.
In 2006, Marvel’s Annihilation event brought a war unlike anything seen before in the comics and introduced a crossover of epic proportions. Bringing with him a wave of warships from the Negative Zone, Annihilus unleashes devastation upon the positive-matter universe, causing millions of planets to be destroyed almost instantly.
The storyline also saw the release of four mini-series, featuring Nova, Super-Skrull, Ronan and the Heralds of Galactus, that fleshed out the adventures of the main characters at different points of the saga. Furthermore, a prologue detailing the early days of Annihilus’ invasion was also published.
