Jonathan Hickman and Bryan Hitch’s revolutionary new series ULTIMATE INVASION arrives on June 14, but you can view the trailer today.
The press release follows:
Media Release — Two of the most acclaimed talents in the industry, writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Bryan Hitch, will unveil a new vision of the Marvel Universe next month in ULTIMATE INVASION! A four-part limited series, ULTIMATE INVASION will spark the beginning of a new age of Marvel Comics in the same vein as the groundbreaking Ultimate Comics line that defined the 2000s. The thrilling saga will see the Illuminati reunite to prevent the Maker, one of the few survivors of the fallen Ultimate Universe, from remaking his home universe. Fans can see that explosive confrontation for the first time in the new ULTIMATE INVASION #1 trailer. The trailer shows a twisted glimpse at the aftermath of the Illuminati’s dramatic failure—a bold new world unlike anything that’s come before…
“[Revisiting the idea of Ultimate Comics] couldn’t be replicating or revisiting what Bryan did in the original Ultimates — creating a streamlined, modernized version that would eventually become the spine of the MCU. And it certainly couldn’t be what I did, which was a final chapter of a pre-existing universe,” Hickman explained to Entertainment Weekly. “We also thought the very idea of Ultimate Comics needed to be inverted from what the original universe was — we wanted this to be something that could really only exist in the comic space: a new way of thinking about, and enjoying, a new version of the Marvel Universe. I’m pretty happy to say that it feels like we’ve accomplished those things and we’re very excited for everyone to get to read it.”
Stay tuned for more news about ULTIMATE INVASION, including information to come at a retailer exclusive virtual press conference with Jonathan Hickman and Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski.
