Marvel's next big event is no secret, and later this January the publisher is looking to make sure the secret is out. Marvel announced today that it will be staging a live "kickoff" to May's Secret Wars event series on January 20 in New York City. The event, to be held at Midtown Comics, will feature Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort talking to fans and press about the "landmark" 8-issue series.
There's no word if the creators, writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Esad Ribic, will be in attendance.
In the press release, the publisher promises "exciting details" about Secret Wars, an event which they say will "shake the very foundations of the Marvel Universe as you know it."
The event, scheduled to begin at 3pm Eastern, will also be broadcast live online on Marvel's website. Newsarama will also be covering the event live.
