My New Marvel Comic: Beyond!

Marvel kicked off its programming at WizardWorld: Los Angeles this afternoon with its “Mondo Marvel” panel, covering several upcoming projects as well as a couple of previously unannounced titles.

One of the new projects announced at the panel was Beyond!, a six issue miniseries written by Dwayne McDuffie, with art by Scot Kolins. The miniseries will take a diverse group of Marvel’s B-list characters (and lower), and place them in a cosmic situation, off world.

LOS ANGELES -- Dwayne McDuffie, most recently a producer on Cartoon Network's Justice League Unlimited, will be teaming with Scott Kolins on Beyond, a six-issue cosmic mini-series from Marvel Comics.

"It involves several Marvel character you wouldn't expect to see together, including Gravity, and puts them off world in a cosmic situation," Marvel editor-in-chief said Friday during the Mondo Marvel panel at Wizard World Los Angeles, where the book was announced.

"Enemies become allies and they must work together to get back home," editor Tom Brevoort said.

Me again. For the record, I love the art, adore the project and hate the exclamation point in the title.
