Marvel to release Secret Wars #9 this December

It’s one of Marvel’s most successful events of all time and it’s getting even bigger. The story that destroyed the Marvel Universe and brought a unique storyline to millions of Marvel fans is expanding with Secret Wars #9. The expansion is coming to comic shops later this year according to the company’s announcements earlier today.

“Apparently, Secret Wars is even bigger than we thought it was,” says Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “To help Jonathan and Esad conclude this epic event as big and bombastically as it started, we are adding an extra issue. That means one more month of the suspense, action and game-changing storytelling that fans and retailers have been clamoring for since the final incursion started.”

Creators Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic will extend their stay on Battleworld for one more epic issue. Allowing their cataclysmic story to wrap up as intended, this additional issue will bring Secret Wars to its explosive conclusion. Paving the way for the future, be there for the genesis of the All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe.

“This extra issue will not affect any of the new launches as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel,“ says David Gabriel, Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing. “But there might be a surprise or two left over from Battleworld you weren’t expecting. In fact, like the original Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars, some of those puzzle pieces will hit the Marvel Universe before the event concludes. But if you want to see how they all fit together, you don’t want to miss these last few issues.

SECRET WARS #9 was written by JONATHAN HICKMAN, with art by ESAD RIBIC and a cover by ALEX ROSS. The new addition will hit shops this December.
