Celebrate A Marvel Milestone With The Marvel Comics #1000 Trailer

Marvel Comics’ 80th anniversary celebration continues! After months of Mighty Marvel Merriment, the culmination arrives in the form of Marvel Comics #1000. Learn all about this unprecedented issue in a new trailer featuring Editor in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, and writer Al Ewing!

A plethora of comics’ best and brightest – as well as luminaries from across pop culture – come together in this monumental collaboration! Witness the evolution of the Marvel Universe as you turn each page, each corresponding to a year in Marvel’s publishing. Plus, throughout the issue Al Ewing weaves an interconnected story, leading to the debut of an all-new hero!

“I don’t think it’s a huge spoiler to say that the very first page in the book is a Human Torch story. But we go from there into some very strange places, some characters that Marvelites might have forgotten about,” teases Ewing. 

“All I can tell you is you cannot miss this book. It is the ultimate celebration of Marvel Comics,” says Cebulski.

Marvel Comics #1000 arrives on August 28th.

Marvel Comics # 1 released October 01, 1939

Al Ewing, writer of the critically-acclaimed Immortal Hulk series, will be the primary writer of Marvel Comics #1000, framing the overall structure of the book.

“There are so many threads in this mystery, so many different parts of Marvel you’ll find secret connections,” Ewing told This Week In Marvel. “There are a lot of synchronicities and echoes in this, and threads between all of that.”

“This is by far the most complex and complicated and difficult book I’ve ever had to assemble,” SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort told The New York Times, speaking to the historic unprecedented scope of the story. 

Also speaking with the Times, Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski described how the buzzworthy creative teams were cast – especially with talents outside of comics: “Our characters are mentioned in so many different ways and in so many different mediums and we always keep track. Now these distinguished individuals are able to contribute back to the comics they grew up on.”

Among those individuals, some of whom teased the project on social media this week, are long-time Marvel veterans — including Roy Thomas, Peter David, Gerry Conway, and Adam Kubert — and current creators — including Saladin Ahmed, Gail Simone, Chip Zdarsky, and Kris Anka — as well as talents outside of comics, like filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, and basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
