ENTER THE WORLD OF G.O.D.S. WITH NEW VARIANT COVERS AND PREVIEW PAGES
On October 4, everything you think you know about Marvel’s cosmology will be shattered by two of the industry’s greatest modern visionaries in G.O.D.S., an epic new series from the minds of writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Valerio Schiti! Yesterday, retailers attended a special video conference and learned firsthand just how ambitious this highly-anticipated saga will be. Today, fans can see all five covers for the debut issue and experience a thrilling new lettered preview!
The five G.O.D.S. #1 covers include stunning spotlights on new character Aiko by Peach Momoko and Ejikure, a dramatic group shot by Mahmud Asrar, and a humorous take on new character Wyn by Skottie Young. Wyn and Aiko are devoted members of THE-POWERS-THAT-BE and THE-NATURAL-ORDER-OF-THINGS, opposing factions that serve the omnipotent forces of the Marvel Universe including Eternity, Infinity, and the Living Tribunal. For eons, these groups have operated in the shadows—what has finally brought their existence to light? Fans can see exactly what in an all-new preview! Behold a Babylon Event, a rare occurrence that has the potential to upend the cosmic pantheon! With all of reality hanging in the balance, see a gathering of magic and science users unleash everything they have against eldritch horrors while Wyn attempts a more unconventional solution…
“When I came back to Marvel a few years ago, I wrote two series bibles. The first was HOUSE OF X and the other one was G.O.D.S.,” Hickman explained. “To say that I’m excited to finally be able to share this story with everyone is a massive understatement. G.O.D.S. takes place in its own special corner of the Marvel Universe — in the cracks that lie at the intersection of science and magic — and revisits some characters and concepts that we’ve reimagined for a more modern, continuity-driven audience.”
Take your first steps into this daring new side of the Marvel Universe by picking up G.O.D.S. #1 when it hits stands on October 5. Preorder it at your local comic shop or digitally today! For more information, visit Marvel.com.
