created 06/10/2011 - 9:34am, updated 06/10/2011 - 10:00am
Updated: With Teaser-Press Release and cover following.
The art will be from Tan Eng Huat and also Timothy Green II, with covers from John Tyler Christopher.
Update: Per the press release below, we see Annihiators: Earthfall is a four issue mini and priced at $3.99.
That's right, Rocket & Groot will get a backup! Green did the art chores on the well-received Rocket and Groot back-up in the Annihilators, which came to a conclusion this week. Of course, Huat was on the main Annihilators story, as well.
Writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning offer a few details with some teasers.
"A desperate and vital mission brings the Annihilators to Earth, and what generates the conflict with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is basically the clash of jurisdiction, and the incompatible interests of both teams; what’s good for Earth might not be good for the Galaxy—and vice versa!" said Abnett.
Of course, cosmic fans realize some of the Annihilators are either from Earth, or have had positive ties with them before, which Abnett notes could be leading to a confict within.
"Given the pro-Earth attitudes of characters like Cosmo, Beta Ray Bill and especially Quasar this could be the mission that splits them down the middle,” said Abnett.
Regarding the new Rocket and Groot, Lanning offered up the following, “They get their own TV show and blow the flark out of stuff,” stated Lanning. “You know: the usual, but bigger and better and crazier!”
