Wednesday, Comics Alliance announced another Secret Wars tie-in. This one will challenge the surprisingly fun to read Starkat couple. In Star-Lord And Kitty Pryde, writer Stan Humphries puts the pair in the middle of Battleworld, but things may not always be as they seem according to Marvel:
STAR-LORD AND KITTY PRYDE–finally in their own series together! But are they TOGETHER together?! And is this the Kitty Pryde that Peter loves or one from a completely different reality. This series takes place right in the thick of things on BATTLEWORLD and is sure to be a wild ride!
Humphries gave a minuscule amount of story detail in an interview with CA, “I can say that the Kitty Pryde of the title is actually the Kitty Pryde from Age of Apocalypse. I can say this story takes place on Battleworld. I can say it is an action romantic comedy with some big, huge moments between the characters. Emotionally and spiritually, this is the continuation of the Peter/Kitty relationship from Legendary Star-Lord — with a couple really huge twists you won’t see coming. Whatever is about to happen, Peter and Kitty won’t be able to go back to the way they were after this.”
With these characters coming full force into the event, it seems as though the current X-Men/GOTG crossover Black Vortex will have its own ramifications heading in to Secret Wars.
Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde launches in June with art by Marvel newcomer Alti Firmansyah, with the first issue cover by Yasmine Putri. It’s tremendous to see Secret Wars won’t just be about spotlighting obscure ideas, but also giving new talent a launching pad.
