We’ve structured Marvel’s forthcoming page slightly differently – by character / property first – and combined with the Panini output. Given the sheer volume of publishing we select certain highlights based on a combination of our own excellent taste, sales expectations and insider buzz! Biblio / Info on the rest is included beneath for perusal.

NB. Panini release more concise and cheaper paperback versions of select hardbacks coming from Marvel, scheduled a few weeks earlier; best check their contents separately as Marvel editions may have additional content. Hope this helps!

The interdimensional Incursions have eliminated each and every dimension one by one – and now, despite the best efforts of the scientists, sages and superhumans of both dimensions, the Marvel Universe and Ultimate Universe have collided with one another… and been destroyed! Now, all that exists in the vast empty cosmos is a single titanic patchwork planet, made of the fragmented remains of hundreds of devastated dimensions: Battleworld! And the survivors of this multiversal catastrophe must learn to survive in this strange new realm! Collecting: Secret Wars 0-8

 

Here’s the set up in brief: The heroes of the Marvel Universe fail to stop the collision of our / planet universe with another, creating a ‘Battleworld’ of realms of pasts, futures and alternate presents drawn from or inspired by previous Marvel events and stories.

SECRET WARS itself spills over into many related stories / graphic novel collections, so many in fact that we’re in the process of giving them their own separate page! [Imminent] But as a quick FYI, there are two strands: Battleworlds, which expand on the main story and its settings, and Warzones, which are more self-contained and cover a particular realm of Battleworld. In the meantime here are the jackets of the 20 odd coming out November to December…
