Marvel Reveals David Aja’s 5 Ronin Covers!

Official Press Release

Marvel Reveals David Aja’s 5 RONIN Covers!

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at superstar artist, David Aja’s stunning covers to 5 Ronin! Featuring Wolverine, Psylocke, Hulk, Deadpool and the Punisher, Marvel’s deadliest heroes, these covers are a must have for any fan!  Bound together by the same fate, yet alone in their existence, the Ronin are forced to walk the lonely path of the masterless samurai in the violent and tumultuous world of feudal Japan to find those who they have been wronged by.

“From the very beginning, I wanted to keep each cover down to two colors that identify with each of the five characters” explains artist, David Aja. “We set out to come up with a design that would grab your eyes from the shelves compared to the rest of the covers while keeping uniformity throughout the series and I think we accomplished that here.”

Editor Sebastian Girner adds, “They clearly show the Marvel characters we know and love, but show them in a way that signals that readers are in for something a little different. Something special.”

Will the five find their revenge? What powerful secret connects these lone warriors? Find the answers to these questions and more as 5 RONIN hits comic shops everywhere this March.

*As an added incentive, retailers will be able order any amount of either cover for each 5 Ronin issue. Retailers should check the Marvel Mailer for details.

Marvel’s Deadliest Heroes Are The 5 Ronin

Official Press Release

Marvel’s Deadliest Heroes Are The 5 RONIN

Wolverine. Psylocke. The Punisher. Hulk. Deadpool. Five of Marvel’s deadliest heroes will come to the fore this March for a series unlike any other in 5 RONIN.  Bound together by the same fate, yet alone in their existence, they are forced to walk the lonely path of the masterless samurai in the violent and tumultuous world of feudal Japan.

Crafted by acclaimed writer Peter Milligan and a rotating cast of today’s hottest artists, 5 RONIN #1-5 is a month-long event with covers from some of the biggest names in the industry. To celebrate the release of this series, retailers will have the opportunity to order two different covers per issue – one by superstar artist David Aja and one by another industry favorite.

“What would the ultimate samurai super hero epic look like? The answer is 5 RONIN” explains Editor Sebastian Girner. “When we came up with the idea of taking our biggest heroes and setting them in this time period, writer Peter Milligan and the amazingly talented cast of artists immediately jumped on board. This is easily one of the most beautiful comics you will read this year.”

Each of the 5 seeks revenge, but against whom? And what powerful secret connects these lone warriors? 5 RONIN will examine the true face of Marvel’s most solitary characters against a majestic — and bloodstained — backdrop.
