Secret Wars really starts to define it’s borders this week, with seven new #1 issues. It’s not a summer crossover, it’s the new Marvel Universe on Battleworld.
Here’s the featured new comic releases coming out Wednesday, May 20th, 2015.
First up is a Secret Wars book that’s set apart from the rest, Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #1.
Cullen Bunn retells the original Secret Wars storyline as if Deadpool had been there the whole time. There’s even a really cool Contest of the Champions backup story with the same schtick. (This really is the type of fiasco that Deadpool’s character was created for.)
Secret Wars – Battleworlds
Next up are some Secret Wars “Battleworlds” titles, or books that help to expand the core Secret Wars title.
First up is the Ultimate End mini-series, a five part series by the creators of the Ultimate Universe, Brian Bendis and Mark Bagley.
Another four issue mini series will be Secret Wars: Battleworlds #1, a collections of short stories set in the Battleworlds.
The first issue features a a short story with a Dr Strange possessed Punisher being hunted by Spider-Man, Wolverine, Hulk and Ghost Rider. Also, every M.O.D.O.K. from across the Battleworlds gathers together! Fun stuff.
Secret Wars – Warzones
Next are Secret Wars ‘Warzones” titles, or books that will help define the post Secret Wars Universe. While set on Battleworld, they are the titles that will most likely continue in some way after the Wars.
First up in this category is A-Force #1.
After her success with Ms Marvel, Marvel decided to give C. Willow Wilson a bigger job, wrangling a whole team of female characters in the tiny corner area of Battleworld called Arcadia. (check your map.)
Next is one I’m really excited about, Planet Hulk #1!.
We’ve also got the return of six Spiders in Spider-Verse #1.
That’s it for this week! Make sure you pull list is up to date for this event, as we will likely be selling out of quite a few titles. There’s a handy checklist on the side for you to print out and use, just drop it off at the shop or email us a scan of a filled out copy!
