Marvel Comics SECRET WARS: Graphic Novel Collections

CG - Ma - Nov - Secret Wars We’ve hit an era in comics where big comic events are essentially continual – but Secret Wars is as big as they come. Paying homage to arguably the first big official event in name and somewhat in plot, Secret Wars paves the way for a ‘restructured’ Marvel Universe and a new era: and there’s a lot of it!
So whether you’re an interested casual reader, a bookseller needing some more info on the graphic novel side, or an event completist, we thought a comprehensive page on Marvel’s Secret Wars collections might help. You can find the rest of Marvel’s Oct-Dec output on our dedicated page here (wherein there’s a montage and a link here of these titles) which contains details on the ‘Last Days’ collections which lead up to Secret Wars. We’ll be maintaining and updating this page with the event titles coming in early 2016 – for now here’s those for October to December with a short summary…

PLOT / COLLECTION SUMMARY: The heroes of the Marvel Universe have lost the battle to save their reality, giving Marvel the in to have a patchwork ‘Battleworld’ of established and brand new alternate realities. The original MU will re-emerge, combined with the Ultimate Universe (the film / TV universe draws from each of these) in the post-Secret Wars All-New All-Different Marvel re-launch. In the meantime there’s the Core Event title, and then two strands of comics / collections, Battleworld and Warzones: Battleworld titles expand on the main story and its settings while Warzones are more self-contained, each covering a particular realm of Battleworld.
