What they’re saying:

  • Writer Steve Orlando: “2099 is back and it's going cosmic! ‘Annihilation 2099’ has been the best kind of challenge — bringing even more cosmic into Marvel's iconic cyberpunk line, and keeping it all fresh, provocative, and surprising!”
  • Editor Mark Paniccia: “No pun intended, but Steve, Ibraim, Ario, Jose, Pete and Dale have knocked this 2099 epic out of orbit! Each issue is action packed with a unique vibe and tone. There’s horror, western, 50’s sci-fi, super hero and all COSMIC! It’s hard to pick a favorite they’re all so good! And Pete Woods’ character designs are incredible. I hope they make action figures of them all soon! The heroes introduced in "Annihilation 2099 are each heroes I could write forever–each with their own tragic beginnings in the Mighty Marvel Tradition. And behind it all? An iconic horror antihero who is taking his vengeance to the stars. Red Hulk 2099! Silver Surfer 2099! Nova 2099! Marvel's future goes intergalactic this summer, and I can't wait for everyone to see it!”
