Marvel's 'All-New, All-Different Marvel' Comic Book Launch Lineup Leaks Early
A day ahead of the official release of Marvel's All-New, All-Different Marvel Previews, a print release exclusive to comic book stores announcing the first wave of launches for the publisher's fall line-wide relaunch, scans of the entire book have leaked online.
The preview book was intended to be exclusive to the comic book direct market, showcasing the first 45 titles in an intended 55- to 60-title series line to be launched this fall, following the climax of the publisher's current Secret Wars event. Instead, an anonymous poster published the entire contents on image-sharing site Imgur Tuesday morning.
As expected, the new Marvel line has a number of returning series, including Amazing Spider-Man; Invincible Iron Man; Guardians of the Galaxy; and the newly retitled Sam Wilson, Captain America and The Mighty Thor. New series include spotlights on Avengers: Age of Ultron breakout characters The Vision and Scarlet Witch, as well as the already announced new Doctor Strange series.
More unexpectedly, there are some noticeable absences from the lineup: Fantastic Four, which gets a Fox movie in August, is nowhere to be found — although two of its characters make appearances in Uncanny Inhumans and Guardians of the Galaxy — and the previously announced Gamora series, to be written by movie screenwriter Nicole Perlman and originally intended for a spring 2015 launch, is also missing. Both titles might show up in a later wave of launches, with Marvel expected to continue to release new series throughout the winter. (Similarly surprisingly absent, considering his upcoming movie debut in next year's Captain America: Civil War, is a solo series for Black Panther.)
Marvel declined to comment on the leak when contacted by THR.

Invincible Iron Man
All-New All-Different Avengers
