Ultraman Set to Return in Marvel’s New Series Ultraman: The Mystery of Ultraseven
Marvel Comics has announced a new comic mini-series, Ultraman: The Mystery of Ultraseven. The new mini-series follows the two acclaimed limited series previously released in a collaboration between Marvel and Tsuburaya Productions which brought readers The Rise of Ultraman and The Trials of Ultraman. The new mini-series will feature the talents of writing duo Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom, with artist Davide Tinto which begins with a double-sized debut issue featuring the pop culture phenomenon.
The publisher notes that the new mini-series will serve as a deeper dive into the Ultraman mythos that will thrill longtime fans and also welcome new readers. The double-sized debut issue will also include a special story that will spotlight the history of Ultra Q.
Marvel‘s description of Ultraman: The Mystery of Ultraseven reads:
“Giant Kaiju roam. A sinister conspiracy consolidates power. And there’s nobody left to stop it — because Ultraman is GONE! How did the situation go so wrong…? And how can the United Science Patrol claw their way back from the brink? The answers lie in the appearance of an enigmatic new Ultra, and a secret that has remained hidden for decades. From distant stars to lost dimensions, untangling this twisted web will require Shin Hayata to go farther and fight harder than ever before!”
Groom spoke about the long-term plan envisioned by him and Higgins in the press release, saying:
“Kyle and I’s reimagination of this universe started with a long-term masterplan – which is why we featured Dan Moroboshi’s mysterious disappearance in the very first pages of THE RISE OF ULTRAMAN. It’s so exciting to have reached the stage where we can now pull back the curtain on that mystery… and its world-shaking implications!”
Ultraman: The Mystery of Ultraseven #1 will arrive at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on August 17th, 2022. Check out the cover of the debut issue by E.J. Su below:
