Marvel has announced their second of three Secret Wars series banners, "Battleworld."
All titles under the Battleworld banner will explore the inner workings of Secret Wars' reconstructed Marvel Universe. Exploring all of the new world's rules, inhabitants, and idiosyncrasies, Battleworld will give a fully-fleshed look at how the new Marvel Universe will operate.
"If you want the full story of what's happening across the surface of this new planet, Battlworld branded titles are for you," Marvel's Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso said in a press release. "Who polices Battleworld? How do the various domains interact? What happens when those domains go to war? What strange, never-before-seen creatures inhabit this world? What familiar faces will make appearances? Fans who want to fully understand how each sector interacts with the others can't miss out on these books!"
Battleworld will accompany "Last Days" as Secret Wars' second series banner. Where Battleworld's titles explore the new Marvel landscape, Last Days looks at how Marvel's heroes and villains will spend their final moments before the universe-crushing incursion. The series banners are in the vein of "Dark Reign" or "The Heroic Age," serving as a branding that thematically ties separate series together.
"Battleworld branded titles will be clearly marked through the Marvel Previews solicits as well as with well distinguished cover trade dress," Marvel's SVP of Sales & Marketing David Gabriel added in the release. "This way, both retailers and fans will know what they're getting. Think of these as the new core monthly titles. "
Battleworld hits comic shops alongside Secret Wars and Last Days this May.
