Hot on the heels of THE RISE OF ULTRAMAN and THE TRIALS OF ULTRAMAN, Marvel’s collaboration with Tsuburaya Productions continues this August as Kyle Higgins, Mat Groom and Davide Tinto bring us ULTRAMAN: THE MYSTERY OF ULTRASEVEN.
Here’s the official blurb for the new five-part series:
Giant Kaiju roam. A sinister conspiracy consolidates power. And there’s nobody left to stop it — because Ultraman is GONE! How did the situation go so wrong…? And how can the United Science Patrol claw their way back from the brink? The answers lie in the appearance of an enigmatic new Ultra, and a secret that has remained hidden for decades. From distant stars to lost dimensions, untangling this twisted web will require Shin Hayata to go farther and fight harder than ever before!
The series promises to deliver “an adventure that will thrill longtime fans of the global phenomenon and welcome Ultraman newcomers”, and the double-sized debut issue will also include an additional story spotlighting the history of Ultra Q and more instructional Kaiju Steps by Gurihiru!
Speaking about the series, Groom said “Kyle and I’s reimagination of this universe started with a long-term masterplan – which is why we featured Dan Moroboshi’s mysterious disappearance in the very first pages of THE RISE OF ULTRAMAN. It’s so exciting to have reached the stage where we can now pull back the curtain on that mystery… and its world-shaking implications!”
ULTRAMAN: THE MYSTERY OF ULTRASEVEN #1 goes on sale this August.
