Third Eye Faithful, we’re telling you right now: WAR OF THE REALMS is gonna be the biggest, bestest thing to hit the Marvel Universe since AVENGERS VS. X-MEN and SECRET WARS.
In other words: this is a top notch, top shelf event story that is going to hit every corner of the Marvel U, and deliver some of the most exciting, cohesive, and freshest storytelling we’ve seen in an event in a minute.
In fact, the vibe we’re getting from WAR OF THE REALMS is very, very similar to DC’s epic DARK NIGHTS METAL event from a year or two back, and with an entire multiverse of new and familiar realms alike at their disposal — we’re pretty darn pumped to see just where the WAR OF THE REALMS takes our favorite Marvel icons!
In fact, we’re so freakin’ pumped for this epic — that we’ve put together a special MIDNIGHT RELEASE for it, to help get the book into your hands before anyone else!
That’s right: be the first to read WAR OF THE REALMS when the clock hits midnight at Third Eye, and find out just why this book is the biggest deal to hit the Marvel Universe in ages!
Read all about WAR OF THE REALMS with our THIRD EYE GUIDE here!
Whether you’re a current fan, or a long-time fan who may have fell off reading the Marvel U, or brand new to the world of the Marvel — this is THE perfect place to get into the MARVEL UNIVERSE!
With a story that’s been quietly brewing for years under the surface of all the major Marvel events, and throughout the entirety of Jason Aaron’s THOR run, WAR OF THE REALMS not only promises to deliver an immense payoff for those of you who’ve been reading since the very start with THOR GOD OF THUNDER — but, also provides the perfect new reader-friendly jumping on point for those of you who’ve been looking for a killer place to dive headfirst back into the Marvel Universe after the post-SECRET WARS era!
It’s no secret that since the beginning of 2018, Marvel has been doing an amazing job with their new slate of titles, like Donny Cates VENOM, Al Ewing’s Immortal Hulk, and of course, Jason Aaron’s AVENGERS, but we’re telling you right now: it’s all building to THE WAR OF THE REALMS, and it’s gonna kick so much ass!
What’s the scoop on WAR OF THE REALMS? Asgard. Alfheim. Heven. Jotunheim. Muspelheim. Niffleheim. Nidavellir. Svartalfheim. Vanaheim.
All of the Ten Realms have fallen to Malekith and his army…except one: Midgard. Home to Thor’s beloved humans. Home to heroes and gods alike. Now, at last, it burns. And Thor won’t even be there to see it.
Malekith the Dark Elf has been rampaging across the Realms for years, and now he’s coming for Midgard. There, the Super Heroes of the Marvel Universe make their final stand, and a war begins.
So, why is Captain America riding a winged horse? Where does Jane Foster come into play? How does Wolverine get involved? Why does Daredevil have a sword…and why is he covered in starry lights? The Punisher, Luke Cage, Iron Fist; how do these street-level heroes join the fight? How do Venom, She-Hulk, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider, and so many more team-up for the war? And is that Blade!?
“I have been building towards WAR OF THE REALMS for the entire duration of my THOR run. So we’re talking six years and 80-something issues and counting,” teases Aaron. “This is a war that covers the entire globe and involves the biggest heroes of the Marvel Universe, as you can see in this amazing promo piece by my MIGHTY THOR collaborators, Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson, who I’m so thrilled to be working with again on WAR OF THE REALMS.”
Third Eye Faithful, if DC Comics raised the ante of what a universe-spanning event could be with 2017’s DARK NIGHTS METAL — then you better believe that MARVEL is stepping up to the challenge, and delivering a storyline that rivals the scale and scope of METAL and then some!
Not since SECRET WARS have we been this excited for a Marvel event, and for good reason: Jason Aaron is one of the best writers in comics, and he’s literally spent nearly a decade playing in the THOR sandbox, building a fully realized mythology that’s set to pour out onto the Marvel Universe as we know it.
You wanna see Frost Giants in Manhattan? You wanna see your favorite Marvel heroes and villains finding themselves in the midst of pure otherworldly Asgardian (and other realms!) chaos on Earth? This is the book!
And, this isn’t just for THOR fans — this is something that touches on, and spotlights all of the Marvel Universe’s mightiest heroes, as well as some of your cult favorite characters! Trust us: this is the definition of big, sprawling, awesome Marvel event goodness!
