Marvel, as many of us know by now, is blowing up the Marvel universe with the incredibly innovative and groundbreaking Secret Wars NEW and Battleworld. (It’s so hard to chew my breakfast with my tongue shoved so far into my cheek.) To help nurture this “End of days” story arc, Marvel is offering Secret Wars #0 and All-New, All-Different Avengers FCBD. For those of us that enjoy a handful of Marvel’s titles, this is a sad time. I would like nothing more than to see the new Disney-Marvel universe implode and then explode into oblivion. But, I’m afraid of what will fill the vacuum. More of my ramblings and anti-Marvel writing to come. In the meantime, please have a look at the covers sent on to me from Marvel and read their full press release below.
