SECRET WARS #9! The Biggest Marvel Story of All Time Just Got Bigger!


New York, NY—August 26th, 2015 — It’s the story that has the whole world on the edge of its seat. The biggest Marvel event of all time. The story that destroyed the Marvel Universe. And if you thought it couldn’t get bigger – you thought wrong. Today Marvel is pleased to announce the expansion of the blockbuster Secret Wars event with SECRET WARS #9 – coming to comic shops later this year!

“Apparently, Secret Wars is even bigger than we thought it was,” says Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “To help Jonathan and Esad conclude this epic event as big and bombastically as it started, we are adding an extra issue.  That means one more month of the suspense, action and game-changing storytelling that fans and retailers have been clamoring for since the final incursion started.”

Chartbusting creators Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic will extend their stay on Battleworld for one more epic issue. Allowing their cataclysmic story to wrap up as intended, this additional issue will bring Secret Wars to its explosive conclusion. Paving the way for the future, be there for the genesis of the All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe.

“This extra issue will not affect any of the new launches as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel,“ says David Gabriel, Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing. “But there might be a surprise or two left over from Battleworld you weren’t expecting. In fact, like the original Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars, some of those puzzle pieces will hit the Marvel Universe before the event concludes. But if you want to see how they all fit together, you don’t want to miss these last few issues.

Battleworld teeters on the brink. What will become of this strange patchwork planet? Who lives? Who dies? One thing is for certain – nobody will come back from Battleworld the same after SECRET WARS #9 this December!



The licensing stream and promotional engine that is Grumpy Cat has an impressive social media presence behind it, and that presence was deployed to promote the upcoming Dynamite Grumpy Cat comics (see “Grumpy Cat Comes to Comics”) within the past week.  Grumpy Cat has nearly eight million Facebook friends, and hundreds of thousands of followers each on Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram, and Grumpy Cat’s handlers exposed all of them to the news that a comic was coming and offered the Comic Shop Locator as a way to find a retailer offering them.

The Grumpy Cat media presence, both as content and as marketing persona, is impressive.  The cat has appeared on numerous news shows but has also made appearances on the MTV Movie Awards, American Idol, The Bachelorette, and WWE Monday Night Raw.  Grumpy Cat is the official spokescat for Friskies and stars in a 2015 campaign and TV commercial for McDonalds.  Over 20 licensees are producing merchandise.   In print, Grumpy Cat has appeared in two books from Chronicle, both bestsellers, and a third will be out in October.
