Where there's a war, there's a warzone - and the third umbrella grouping for tie-ins to Marvel's upcoming Secret Wars event series is revealed. Warzones! (exclamation point Marvel's) joins the previously announced Last Days and Battleworld as "different categories of titles" taking place during the release of Secret Wars beginning in May.
“If you want a glimpse of what the future holds, you’ll find it in the Warzones! titles,” explained Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso in a press release. “Our creators let their imaginations run wild as they lay down the foundations for the future. Whether we’re revisiting the most popular events from Marvel’s past or telling completely new stories, you won’t believe what we’ve got in store for you.”
Warzones! branded titles will be distinct from others in that they'll focus on stories set inside one of the patchworld sectors of Battleworld, instead of crossing over with other sectors.
“To be clear, Warzones! titles are not fill-ins. These are the event caliber books, magnified to the Nth degree,” added Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Secret Wars has afforded us a completely unique opportunity to tell huge, epic, event-sized stories within the framework of this new, patchwork planet – events within events. These titles will lay the building blocks and groundwork for what’s next, if that gives any indication of how important they are!”
