But even if ULTRAMAN can slay this dark beast and prevent catastrophe, it will be too late to prevent the birth of a new world – leaving one final decision to be made, that promises to forever change the destiny of humanity.
Earlier this year, Marvel collaborated with Tsuburaya Productions to bring readers The Rise of Ultraman, a thrilling comic series that introduced the pop culture icon to new fans and delighted longtime Ultraman enthusiasts. Following this soaring debut, the Ultraman saga will continue this March in The Trials of Ultraman. The all-star team behind The Rise of Ultraman, writers Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom and artist Francesco Manna, return to continue to explore the fascinating Ultraman mythos.
