Marvel has released details of an upcoming omnibus in their February solicitations; it’s a greatly-wanted book that’s expected to be published in May 2014 (though that’s unconfirmed for now…).

Annihilation Omnibus 

ANNIHILATION OMNIBUS

Written by Keith Giffen; Dan Abnett; Andy Lanning; Javier Grillo-Marxuach; Simon Furman; Christos Gage; and Stuart Moore.

Marvel’s cosmic superstars return in explosive, widescreen sci-fi style! Annihilus, lord of the Negative Zone, has declared war! And as his unstoppable Annihilation Wave swarms into the Marvel Universe, demolishing all in its path, only a handful of heroes can resist the destruction! Nova learns the ways of war from Drax the Destroyer; the Silver Surfer seeks out his former master, Galactus, for aid; the Super-Skrull fights for his son’s life; and Ronan the Accuser faces Gamora and her woman warriors! Nova and Quasar’s army leads the charge — but as heroes fall and Annihilus rises, the universe’s one remaining hope may be Thanos, the Mad Titan!

Here’s the blurb:

“Neither wholly plant nor animal, neither entirely self-aware nor totally non-sentient, the creature called the Man-Thing is unique, unchanging and alone — but none who encounter him can ever be the same again. Empathic by nature and drawn to fight evil, his shambling visage inspires fear — and whatever knows fear burns at the Man-Thing’s touch. Whether danger rises from the swamp or the city, the past or the future, outer space or the human soul, the Man-Thing awaits!”

The 1192-page HC has an RRP of £95, but if you pre-order now, it’ll cost just £57. The book is set to collect Astonishing Tales (1970) #12-13; Fear #11-18, and material from #10 and #19; Man-Thing (1974) #1-22, Giant-Size Man-Thing #1-3 and material from #4-5, Incredible Hulk (1968) #197-198; Marvel Team-Up (1972) #68; Marvel Two-In-One #43; Man-Thing (1979) #1-11; Dr. Strange (1974) #41; and material from Savage Tales (1971) #1, Monsters Unleashed #5 and #8-9, and Rampaging Hulk (1977) #7.
