Marvel fans have witnessed their wrath across the universe many times…and now they’re back.
This November, five of Thanos’ most feared warriors take the stage in BLACK ORDER! Award winning fantasy novelist Derek Landy joins acclaimed artist Philip Tan for the unhinged Super Villain limited series!
Dispatched by the Grandmaster to work their ruthless tactics, the Cull Obisidian have set their sights on destruction—but they may discover that there’s someone even bigger and badder standing in their way…
“Springboarding from their last appearance in AVENGERS: NO SURRENDER, BLACK ORDER sets the flagitious five on a bloody, brutal, head-rolling take-no-prisoners tear that will pit them against the forces of an entire Galactic Empire—and where they’ll encounter some familiar Marvel faces as well as some bonkers new faces along the way!” teases SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort.
“Derek Landy’s been one of my favorite writers for years—his anti-heroes and villains are explosive, over-the-top and bombastic, so he seemed the natural choice when we wanted a BLACK ORDER series full of wild ultraviolence and wicked fun,” explains editor Alanna Smith. “And Philp Tan’s crisp, intense, and punchy art is the perfect match for that—they’re going to make (magnificently evil) magic together. Miss out on this book at your own peril!”
