The advance solicitations on Newsarama contain the first issue of the mini New Avengers: Illuminati written by Bendis & Brian Reed and art by Jim Cheung.

I guess it's the mini that was talked about a while ago that deals with past actions of the Illuminati in important points in Marvel history.

If done right, this might turn out really great. Or not. I'm liking Cheung.

Cool. Some of the other solicits look pretty interesting as well. So is Civil War not coming out that month?

Cheung working on this means Cheung NOT working on Young Avengers and the relaunch of that being delayed. :x

Has anyone given a date for that - firm or approximate?

Last I heard (from Heinberg) sometime in March. Illuminati is 5 issues, though, assume that if #1 comes out in December, Cheung will be maybe a few issues ahead, making a March date for Young Avengers really questionable. Cheung isn't really slow, I don't think, but he's not FAST either.

That really made me sad =(

What I want to know is, why are they pretending the Illuminati has been around for all these years when everyone knows it was made up one or two years ago?

This title is gay

Like Strangefate, except Strangefate is actually fun.

We're supposed to be just finding out that they've been behind everything all along.

Everything we thought we knew was wrong.

Hence being called Illuminati. It's supposed to be secret. Secret's out. That's why they're telling it.

there was no secret, there was Bendis going, I want these people, and Joe Q., inbetween sucking Bendis' ****, went, Sounds good.

Then he dribbled on the carpet and made a stain.

I remember Bendis talking about this at some point and he said that it wouldn't retcon anything and he wanted to do his research and be extra careful not to mess with past story lines. Who here believes that, raise your hands!

Concerning about YA and Cheung, no firm or approximate date was given. Brevoort had said himself they had not set any date or a "maybe around Feb/March" kind of thing because he didn't want to say it would start at a certain date and then not show up when the time came.


As for the mini, I can't wait for it, because yes E, the one-shot was good. :D
