Marvel Comics just released the full lineup for December 2022, but now we have an even deeper look at what’s in store for Marvel’s future thanks to their distributor’s website, Penguin Random House (opens in new tab). The distributor’s public retail site includes a gallery of covers for previously announced titles slated for release in January 2023.
Several covers have already been previewed, including the recently announced Avengers: Time War main cover which celebrates 60 years of Avengers in 2023 and marks the Marvel Comics debut of longtime DC writer/editor Paul Levitz alongside Avengers veteran Alan. Davis.
There’s also the Midnight Suns #5 cover, which features the previously revealed youthful redesign of Agatha Harkness from a story that digs into her ancient past beginning with Midnight Suns #2. Interestingly, the Midnight Suns #5 cover features Agatha alongside the modern members of the supernatural team, potentially indicating that her younger self could somehow cross over to the present day. It’s not a far-fetched idea with her own streaming series starring Katherine Hahn on the way.

As for what we haven’t seen before, there are a few dozen covers for almost all of Marvel’s regular line, including a particularly cool homage cover for Savage Avengers #9 that references the now-legendary cover of Uncanny X-Men #141, the beginning of the story ‘Dani past future’. Considering that the Savage Avengers just found themselves in the future world of 2099, the time travel theme is spot on.
It is one of several covers in the homage variant.
There are also post-AXE covers for the X-Men and Avengers lines, as the X-Men line prepares for the ‘Sins of Sinister’ storyline and the Avengers transition into ‘Avengers Assemble,’ longtime writer Jason Aaron’s final story on the title. Plus a first look at the cover of the Murderworld: Wolverine special and possible hints at upcoming storylines, like the Punisher meeting Daredevil, the Golden Goblin facing off against the Goblin Queen and more.
So here’s a gallery of all 64 new covers for January 2023 – although you’ll have to wait until October for the actual January 2023 Marvel Comics requests:
