Marvel Comics 07.09.08 | Ultimate Eternal Origins, Part the Second!

| Print |

eternals2-header.jpgIt's second issue time for two of Marvel's hottest new miniseries, as Thena and Ikaris rally the troops in Eternals #2 and the secret of the Cap's Super Soldier serum is revealed in Ultimate Origins #2.



Ultimate Origins #1 Sells Out!

Debuting to critical acclaim, Ultimate Origins #1 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at the retail level)! Even with Marvel's largest retailer incentive ever, a massive overprint, and tremendous support from retailers, the demand for this March on Ultimatum tie-in has been overwhelming! The first issue of the shocking series by Brian Michael Bendis (Secret Invasion) and Butch Guice, revealed the origin of mutants in the Ultimate Universe-and how it's all tied to everyone's favorite Canucklehead!  


Marvel will not be going back to press on this issue, but urges retailers to check the Marvel Mailer for a significant incentive on Ultimate Origins #2 and upcoming information on similar incentives for Ultimate Origins #3. Marvel is also extending the FOC for Ultimate Origins #2 by one week to allow fans and retailers to adjust their orders!


Just what is the truth behind the Super Solder experiments? How does Captain America's transformation from soldier to super hero affect the very core of the Ultimate U? Find out in Ultimate Origins #2, featuring 50/50 covers from superstar artists Simone Bianchi (upcoming Astonishing X-Men) and Dell'Otto, plus a Dell'Otto Sketch Variant!


Marvel would like to thank retailers for their tremendous support of Ultimate Origins!

The Eternals Have Returned!

This week, Marvel's Eternals made their return in Eternals #1, from the acclaimed writing duo of Charles & Daniel Knauf (Iron Man: Director of SHIELD) and rising star artist Daniel Acuna, and it's been embraced by fans and critics!

"The Knaufs have a fascinating premise... [Acuna's] work is worth the cover price"-- Timothy Callahan, ComicBookResources.Com


"A lot of weird stuff happens, and that gives me hope for the rest of the series"-- Ann McCally, WizardUniverse.Com


"It's a good start to a promising series. The Knaufs and Acuña seem to be well poised to carry on the work begun by Gaiman"-- Andrew C Murray, WeeklyComicBookReview.Com


"Charles and Daniel Knauf are kicking off this book they way they need to"-- Blake Petit, ComiXtreme.Com


Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Eternals, as the series continues to generate buzz! Please note that, to allow retailers additional time to increase orders, Marvel has moved the FOC by one week.


Now that Druig's made his move and the Horde are on their way to Earth, is there any way for Thena and Ikaris to gather the forces of good to triumph in time? Find out in Eternals #2!
