Looks like Marvel fans still have a lot more reading to do as the massive Secret Wars event receives a 9-issue extension! “Apparently, Secret Wars is even bigger than we thought it was,” says Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso in a press release. “To help Jonathan [Hickman] and Esad [Ribic] 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 clamoring for since the final incursion started.”
Now Secret Wars #9 will be the end of the series and start the set up for Marvel’s All-New All-Different relaunch, the new addition would not detract from the October debut of Marvel’s new publishing line.
“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.”
Nobody can wait to see what the full fate of Battleworld is when Secret Wars #9 hits the shelves of comic book shops everywhere in December. Until that time fans can take a look at Alex Ross’ cover art for the issue.
