The book will follow the youth of the Marvel Universe through the fallout from Infinity.
Rising star Matt Kindt, the talent behind the single best ongoing series being published today, Mind MGMT, joins artist Paul Davidson on Inhumanity: The Awakening, a tie-in to Marvel's Inhumanity super-mega-crossover event, which, as far as we can tell, is itself a spinoff from the Infinity super-mega-crossover event. The book will follow the students of Avengers Academy and the Jean Grey School as they fend for themselves because the grown-up Avengers and X-Men are contractually forbidden from appearing in more than thirty-seven combined books in a single month.
"Think back to when you were 16 and the things that you used to define yourself," said Marvel Editor Bill Rosemann in the article on Marvel.com.
Sweet! So this book is gonna be all about smoking pot, listening to obscure 1980s British punk rock, and trying desperately to fingerbang Sally Wilson in the cemetery behind White Castle?!
"Things like your family, your history and where you come from." Oh. Rosemann didn't mean me specifically. "Now imagine if one day you realize everything you know about yourself is wrong--and, oh yeah, you have spikes sprouting up all over your body and your hands spray acid."
Inhumanity: The Awakening is, as far as we can tell, an ongoing series, but the solicits will tell us for sure. It'll be in stores in December. We'll keep you updated on the details.
The details about the series. That thing with Sally never never got past second base, unfortunately.
