Jonathan Hickman and Valerio Schiti’s upcoming G.O.D.S. series has elements of Sandman and Saga, according to Marvel Comics executive editor Tom Brevoot.

Speaking with AIPT,  Brevoot explained, “This really sits on the axis of Saga and Sandman. There are some certain stylistic similarities. It’s definitely a different flavor than what we do at Marvel.”

Sandman was written by Neil Gaiman and originally published by DC Comics from 1989 and 1996. The original run lasted 75 issues and centers around the character of Dream/Morpheus, an immortal entity who is freed from captivity at the start of the series.

Saga, meanwhile, is written by Brian K. Vaughan, illustrated by Fiona Staples, and published by Image Comics. A cosmic tale revolving around the birth, childhood, and the life of a girl named Hazel, Saga has not yet completed its run but, so far, 66 issues have been published.

G.O.D.S officially launches in October 2023. While not many details about the series have been released up until this point, G.O.D.S will focus on five cosmic beings who could potentially reshape the entire Marvel multiverse. Characters such as Doctor Strange also play a role in the series.
