“It’s the story that has the world talking.”
Yes that’s right. I guess it must be FOC for Secret Wars #8, the next to last issue of Marvel’s 2015 event which was supposed to have come out…well Issue #1 came out in April, so I guess a month ago. Marvel’s late sipping issues have slid their entire line into turmoil as All New all Different #1’s are shipping before the event that was supposed to introduce them. And dozens of books have been delayed all summer and now autumn, crimping cash flow and making retailers cringe.
but here’s the info for issue #8…which was originally supposed to be the last issue but now is only the NEXT to last issue.
The biggest Marvel event of all time. And it’s rocketing toward it’s cataclysmic conclusion. Today, Marvel is pleased to present Alex Ross’ stunning cover to SECRET WARS #8 – the epic, penultimate issue of the blockbuster event!
