Marvel’s Secret Wars Extended to fit in all the AWESOME!
As one of the biggest cross-over events Marvel has ever concocted, the Secret Wars storyline is now set to get even bigger with the arrival of an additional issue: SECRET WARS #9!
The announcement from Editor-in-chief Axel Alonso was made claiming that even he wasn’t expecting SW to be so big.
“Apparently, Secret Wars is even bigger than we thought it was,” says Axel Alonso. “To help Jonathan and Esad conclude this epic event as big and bombastically as it started, we are adding an extra issue. That means one more month of the suspense, action and game-changing storytelling that fans and retailers have been clamouring for since the final incursion started.”
The additional issue is being incorporated as a way to let creators Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic wrap up the events that have ripped the Marvel Universe apart at its seems. However it will not impact the launch of the All-New, All-Different Marvel that is set to take place once the dust settles.
“This extra issue will not affect any of the new launches as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel,” says David Gabriel, Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing. “But there might be a surprise or two left over from Battleworld you weren’t expecting. In fact, like the original Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars, some of those puzzle pieces will hit the Marvel Universe before the event concludes. But if you want to see how they all fit together, you don’t want to miss these last few issues.”
On sale in December, the new and extended conclusion to the Secret Wars saga is sure to be filled with as many Marvelous twists and surprises as they can fit in 22 pages.
