Here is the first look at the new Secret Wars Cover

Secret_Wars_1

Marvel, in its continuing quest for mediocrity and to rehash their past successes, has released this cover for the Secret Wars reboot. As a comic veteran, or old dude, depending on how old you are yourself, I remember ‘Secret Wars’ fondly as the source of the Venom symbiote and a grand excuse to get all of Marvel’s heroes and villains together in one place. It was also the masterwork of a being called the ‘Beyonder’ whose other claim to fame was having Michael Jackson’s Thriller hair cut  with a jacket straight from ‘Miami Vice.’ Wow I am officially old. At least the comic has some greats working on it, and the cover is expectedly awesome.
