Secret Wars: Armor Wars Prequel Available Exclusively At Toys"R"Us
Marvel will release a special prequel issue to one of its upcoming Secret Wars series, Secret Wars: Armor Wars #1/2, exclusive through Toys"R"Us outlets from May 3 through May 9.
Armor Wars centers on a civil war in a city of iron men and iron women that threatens to destroy the Stark dynasty. The origins of this cataclysm will be revealed in Secret Wars: Armor Wars #1/2.
The issue will be released as a free gift with purchase exclusively at Toys"R"Us® stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com with any Marvel purchase of $25 or more.
The prequel issue is written by Armor Wars series writer James Robinson (All-New Invaders) and drawn by Mark Bagley (Ultimate Spider-Man, Hulk).
"This is a really cool prelude that sets the stage for Eisner award-winning writer James Robinson's Secret Wars: Armor Wars techno-noir thriller. And you'll love the detail, mood and action that superstar artist Mark Bagley delivers," says series editor Mark Paniccia in a press release. "It's a great introduction to Technopolis and the earth-shattering mystery that's at its center."
In the retro-future city of Technopolis, the population is now in the clutches of a disease that makes it impossible for anyone to survive without a suit of armor. Rival brothers Tony and Arno Stark provide the technology that keeps the city alive.
But, there are secrets on the street about the origin of the disease that confine the citizens of Technopolis…and key players begin to make their moves based on data that could take down the protectors of the city Tony Stark (Iron Man) and Jim Rhodes (Thor).
The full story will be revealed in the 12-page prequel comic book, available for a limited time only through the retailer's exclusive ARMOR WARS free gift with purchase program. Customers visiting Toysrus.com can also discover the secrets of Armor Wars and receive a complimentary comic with their online Marvel purchase of $25 or more from Sunday, May 3 through Saturday, May 9, while supplies last.0comments
