YES!!! Marvel just announced at NYCC that they will be relaunching the epic Secret Wars. The new run will run for a full year and will feature writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Esad Ribic.
And if you missed what Secret Wars is, never fear you friendly neighborhood comic nerd is here!!
Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars aka just Secret Wars was a massive crossover comic that lasted twelve issues. It was such a big deal because it features The Avengers (including Captain America, Captain Marvel II, Hawkeye, Iron Man II, She-Hulk, Thor, the Wasp), Human Torch, Mister Fantastic, and Thing from the Fantastic Four, the X-Men (Colossus, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Professor X, Rogue, Storm, Wolverine and Lockheed the Dragon), AND Spier-Man, Spider-Woman, and the Hulk AND THAT’S JUST THE HEROS!
The story was about a cosmic entity called the Beyonder who for whatever Q-esque reason decided to observe the Marvelverse. It thought heroes and villains were cool so it teleported a bunch of them to a place called Battleworld and told them to fight to the death for some great reward. Basically it was a really fun idea that pits a lot of awesome characters against each other (or helping each other) when you normally don’t get to see them interact.
So now you understand why me and so many other comics fans are super stoked for this relaunch!!! And on top of that Marvel publishing VP Tom Brevoort said "However massive you think this is, let me assure you it is bigger than that. It's by far the craziest thing I've dealt with.” For now that’s all the details we have, but that’s enough to get my pumped!
