Marvel Comics has extended this summer’s event “Secret Wars” by one additional Issue. A 9th issue of the limited series has been announced. What is intriguing is that the Alex Ross artwork solicited for issue 8 is now featured for the new issue.
Secret Wars follows the collapse of all Marvel Universes, with a select number of heroes and villains surviving the destruction. Using the power of
Molecule Man to fashion Battleworld -a patchwork of various sections of the destroyed Marvel Multiverse, Victor Von Doom has set himself up as a God in a world without a Reed Richards.
Writer Jonathan Hickman has stated in past interviews each successive issue has a higher page count than the last. It remains to be seen if this new
addition means the original issue has been pared back, or if additional story and content is being added.
