As great as Secret Wars has been over the past couple of issues, the story isn’t going to be the end of the Marvel Universe as we know it — the series will also not serve as the last event ever told by the publisher. Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso confirmed the existence of a new event on the Andy Greenwald Podcast. CBR picked up the story and explained how the Marvel EiC directly referenced a brand new new event series coming up next in the All-New, All-Different line.
His reference to the brand new event was vague, but Alonso did mention that the brand new series would contain “something that we think everyone will relate to — that reads a comic book, that watches TV, that has an iPhone or a Blackberry.” Marvel hasn’t revealed that they are entirely set on a story either; “We’re slowly whittling that down to the story we’re going to be very proud of.”
There’s another Marvel event coming whether fans are ready or not, but when will Secret Wars conclude? The two new issues of the series, Secret Wars #6 and #7 have both been pushed back to October, #8 is shipping the subsequent month. The additional issue: #9 is still on time for December.
