MARVEL'S ORIGINAL CROSSOVER EVENT GETS THE SATURDAY MORNING TREATMENT IN A NEW MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD COVER!

Check out Sean Galloway’s latest Saturday Morning Variant Cover debuting this November!

New York, NY— August 16, 2023 — Over the last few months, artist Sean Galloway has captured the spirit of Saturday Morning cartoons with a new line of variant covers depicting your favorite heroes in his fantastic animated style. Inspired by classic TV ads of decades past, this popular new cover program radiates the exuberant energy and vibrant aesthetic of iconic children’s programming with a modern twist. This November, Galloway will spotlight the groundbreaking Secret Wars event in a new connecting cover for MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD #1 and #2! The bombastic storyline is a perfect fit for Galloway’s style and the cover serves as an homage to Mike Zeck’s classic Secret Wars #1 cover.

Written by former Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief and the editor of the original Secret Wars, Tom DeFalco, and drawn by acclaimed artist Pat Olliffe, MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD will reveal a never-before-told adventure set during one of the significant conflicts in Marvel Comics history. Starring super hero best friend duo Spider-Man and the Human Torch, the limited series will reveal secrets behind the Beyonder’s true motives, contain shocking appearances by characters you never knew fought in the Secret Wars, and fit seamlessly between the pages of the beloved original series!

“Pat Olliffe and I were handed a daunting creative challenge,” DeFalco shared. “We were asked to do a sequel/new tale of a classic Marvel story that first saw print 40 years ago and created ripples that are still felt throughout the universe today. Since we share a kinship with a certain web-swinger (and his family), we were also compelled to do a story that ripped to his core and defined his unique place in the Marvel Universe, while examining the budding relationship with his new black costume. With the aid of editors Mark Basso and Drew Baumgartner, Pat and I constructed a tale that we believe has repercussions for today’s readers and creative ripples that we hope will still be felt 40 years from now.”

I know they keep telling us these are Saturday Morning Cartoon stylings but that's not exactly accurate. These are more like the pre-teen comic adaptations that you find at a school book fair or in a coloring book. The art is great and sometimes simplicity beats out that crazy complicated and busy style that's become so prevalent in todays comics but it's just a little bit off the mark.

Yeah, the designs should be loser to the 80's cartoons like Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends

Yeah art looks way too much like something you'd buy at the scholastic book fair for a child, also gives off some Steven Universe/Bee and Puppycat vibes, which just don't screen 80's/90's Saturday morning cartoons to me, seems to modern.

anyways they gave it a go.

Not exactly my Saturday morning cartoons -- but then again, those were primarily in the 70s/early 80s -- but they're pretty cute.

That ain't Wasp's SECRET WARS costume, though. Not even a mis-colored take.

But I still give it all a thumbs-up! Now we need a Villains version...

Next month, Marvel Comics kicks off the 40th anniversary celebration of its original crossover event, Jim Shooter, Mike Zeck, and Bob Layton’s MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS, with an all-new series that takes place during the original saga: MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD!

The series returns to when Marvel’s greatest heroes and deadliest villains were pit against each other on Battleworld by the unbelievably powerful Beyonder. Industry icon Tom DeFalco, former Marvel Comics editor-in-chief and the editor of the original Secret Wars, teams up with acclaimed artist Pat Olliffe to expose this new Battleworld adventure starring Spider-Man and the Human Torch!

Today, fans can check out all the covers plus all-new interior artwork. Fitting seamlessly between the pages of the original series, MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD will take place after Spidey receives his iconic black alien costume that would one day become Venom! This new preview recaptures familiar Secret Wars moments and shows the beginning of Spidey and Human Torch’s secret mission.

MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD also holds answers to a 40-year old mystery with shocking appearances by characters that you didn’t even know fought in Secret Wars! As seen on the cover of MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD #2, villains like Baron Zemo, Hobgoblin, Electro, Constrictor, and more found their way onto Battleworld. What do these characters have in common? Fans know that MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS didn’t just impact comic book storytelling, it launched a spectacular Marvel Comics toy line! The beloved Secret Wars toy line included various heroes and villains who didn’t make into the original event—until now! Learn what their roles were and stay tuned to future issues to see what other heroes and villains show up!

“Pat Olliffe and I were handed a daunting creative challenge,” DeFalco said. “We were asked to do a sequel/new tale of a classic Marvel story that first saw print 40 years ago and created ripples that are still felt throughout the universe today. Since we share a kinship with a certain web-swinger (and his family), we were also compelled to do a story that ripped to his core and defined his unique place in the Marvel Universe while examining the budding relationship with his new black costume. With the aid of editors Mark Basso and Drew Baumgartner, Pat and I constructed a tale that we believe has repercussions for today’s readers and creative ripples that we hope will still be felt 40 years from now.”

“Whether you never read SECRET WARS, or spent the 80s poring over the comics in between fighting with your Secret Wars figures and their Secret Shields…you’re going to come away from this adventure with a complete story and, if you are a longterm fan, an even greater understanding of the characters and stakes in this greatest of wars!” Editor Mark Basso added.

MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS set the standard for Marvel Comics events. Don’t miss this new in-continuity story, packed with secret connections to the original, when MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD #1 arrives next month!
