Notably Marvel is confirmed to release a comic adaptation of "Wild Cards," George R.R. Martin's (aka GRRM) long-running superhero series. The collection, which started in 1987, has 25 books including short stories, novels, and etc.

Other authors have also lent their talents into the "Wild Cards" series aside from George R.R. Martin himself. These authors are Roger Zelazny, Charles Stross, and Saladin Ahmed, making this a fairly good move for Marvel.

Marvel goes on to describe George R.R. Martin's "Wild Cards" series as a story revolving around an alternate Earth where super-powered people exist. Though not all individuals with super powers are good as there are villains roaming around as well.

Fans should expect a superhero story that makes use of cards. The first comic series under Marvel, which is based on the original "Wild Cards" novel, is going to be written by Paul Cornell with artwork from Mike Hawthorne. It will also be subtitled "The Drawing of Cards."

Adding to this, a TV adaptation of George R.R. Martin's "Wild Cards" is currently in development for the Peacock streaming service. Though marvel's "Wilds Cards: The Drawing of Cards" will be dropping first as it is slated to release on the 1st of June.
