If Marvel's solicitations are anything to go by, what usually follows their release of trades for the month is something related further down the road.
Of course with the rumored reboot of Marvel Cosmic coming, these look to be just in time.
In addition, there's also the new Captain "Ms. Marvel" series as well as Kid Nova appearing in Avengers Vs. X-Men #12 in October, not to mention the Guardians of the Galaxy movie and Thanos.
