Marvel has just released a new video teaser which s reveals that YES….all of those event teasers we’ve been seeing over the last few weeks have been a lead in to the upcoming Secret Wars book, which will present champions from all of those various “event worlds” battling in a contest of champions on what looks like s strange planet, with each “event” making up its own country.
Married Spider-Man vs Zombie She-Hulk! Animated Gambit vs Old Man Logan! WHO WILL WIN? The series, to be written by Jonathan Hickman and drawn by Esad Ribic with covers by Alex Ross, will answer all these questions and more that we can barely even imagine.
I know some of you are saying ‘Who will care?” But I like how Marvel really rolled out the promotion on this, and ended with a MCU-style trailer to give this more promotional oomph than just your average mini comic event. Marvel’s film division is a trend setter; the comics should get some coverage as well.
