Its no secret that Marvel’s Secret Wars and of its sister titles are a huge hit. Secret Wars will now be ending with issue #9 in December.
Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso stated in a press release, “Apparently Secret Wars is even bigger than we thought it was. 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.”
Issue #9 will conclude the series but it will not hinder Marvel’s All-New, All-Different relaunch in October
“This extra issue will not affect any of the new launches as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel,” Marvel SVP of Sales and Marketing, David Gabriel goes on to say. “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.”
Secret Wars will continue into December and we will start seeing the changes to the Marvel U as soon as Invincible Iron Man in October.
