It’s the series that defined what a comic book crossover epic could be—Jim Shooter, Mike Zeck, and Bob Layton’s Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars! Next year, Marvel marks the 40th anniversary of the pioneer crossover event by boldly re-presenting all 12 issues in their original form, ads and all! Hitting stands each month starting in January, these special facsimile editions will also be available with new variant covers and special foil variant covers!
Plus, since it’s the anniversary of Secret Wars, that means it’s also the anniversary of Spider-Man’s iconic black costume that would one day become Venom! In the same month as Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #1, Spidey donned the black costume for the first time in Roger Stern, Tom Defalco, and Ron Frenz’s Amazing Spider-Man #252. The issue took place after his return from Secret Wars and the mystery behind Spidey’s new look rattled fans for months before it was ultimately revealed later that same year in Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #7. This all-time great comic issue as well as the Amazing Spider-Man issues that followed it will also get new Facsimile Editions starting in January. They’ll hit stands each month coinciding with the issues of Secret Wars just like they did back in 1984! Stay tuned in the months ahead to learn more ways Marvel Comics will honor this landmark Spider-Man moment.

But while this battalion of bad guys looks to secure an early victory, two of the Marvel Universe’s heavyweight schemers make plans of their own. What does Doctor Doom want with Galactus? Why has Magneto gone solo in a fortress of his own? And as the dust settles on the first round of the Beyonder’s secret war, who will be left standing?
