The Next Generation of Marvel Heroes Returns in SECRET WARRIORS!

 

Nick Fury has assembled the next generation of Marvel super heroes-the sons and daughters of super villains-to fight the new order that Dark Reign has brought to the Marvel Universe! Secret Warriors #1, written by award winning scribes Brian Michael Bendis & red-hot Jonathan Hickman and  featuring the stunning art of Marvel Young Gun artist Stefano Caselli, presents Fury’s battle to not only train the next generation of heroes-but to also defeat what may be the greatest threat he’s ever faced! You’ve seen the Warriors come together in the pages of Mighty Avengers and you’ve seen them push back the Skrull armada Secret Invasion-but what could rock their world even more? If that’s not enough, in addition to the eye-popping cover by Jimmy Cheung, Secret Warriors #1 also features the parents of these heroes on a variant cover by a top secret artist!

 

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Secret Warriors and all other Dark Reign tie-ins as the new status quo for the Marvel Universe continues to generate buzz!
