Next month the Kaiju have escaped their vault and there’s only one hero daring enough to stand between humanity and these unstoppable monsters. The Trials of Ultraman from Marvel Comics is a new series following The Rise of Ultraman written by Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom, illustrated by Francesco Manna, Eduardo Ferigato, and Gurihiru, and colored by Espen Grundetjern. Check out a trailer for the release below featuring never-before-seen artwork.
“In The Rise of Ultraman, we had to create a whole new universe (built on the powerful concepts and characters of the original television shows). Then, in the final issue of Rise, we turned that world upside-down. Now, in The Trials of Ultraman, we get to really explore this new universe – the consequences of decisions made in Rise, and the possibilities (as well as tensions) of a newly-fantastical global community,” Higgins and Groom explained. “The introduction is over… now, we’ll be diving into the real meat of our Ultraman saga. And the stakes and scale will only continue to grow.”
The Trials of Ultraman #1 features a main cover by Arthur Adams. It’s set for release on March 17th, 2021.
