Last week saw Marvel published Maestro #5, the conclusion of the mini-series from the character's creator Peter David that finally told the untold story of his origins. This future version of The Hulk found himself going up against Hercules and other Marvel characters in his quest to become "Maestro." This issue, despite being the final in this five issues series, isn't the last time we'll be seeing the character as the final pages of Maestro #5 teased the next Maestro starring series, Maestro: War and Pax. Scheduled to arrive in the first part of 2021, the series will pick up where this one ended!
"This miniseries has ended, but never fear, True Believer!" The final page of Maestro #5 reads. "There’s a lot more story to tell, and now that he’s got the throne, the Maestro ain’t goin’ nowhere. MAESTRO: WAR AND PAX debuts on January 20 with artist Javier Pina at Peter David’s side!"
In a previously released statement, David said: “I am thrilled that, twenty years after I created him, the Maestro still intrigues people so much that the first series garnered the sort of success that demanded a follow-up. As long as folks want to keep reading about him, I'm happy to keep giving them stories.”
You can find all the solicits released for the series, encompassing its first three issues, below along with cover art.
