The Jedi’s Greatest Warrior Charges Into Battle – Marvel Comics Announces STAR WARS: JEDI OF THE REPUBLIC – MACE WINDU #1! Matt Owens and Denys Cowan bring you an all-new tale about Mace Windu

New York, NY—May 18, 2017—The Jedi have always been the galaxy’s peacekeepers…but with the Clone Wars on the horizon, all that is about to change. This August, writer Matt Owens (Elektra) will team with artist Denys Cowan (Nighthawk, Captain America/Black Panther: Flags of Our Fathers) to unveil the exciting story of one of the Jedi’s greatest warriors in STAR WARS: JEDI OF THE REPUBLIC – MACE WINDU #1!

One of the most accomplished and storied members of the Jedi High Council, his wisdom and combat prowess are legendary. Now, in this new story, readers will get to see Mace Windu lead his Jedi into battle…and face the ultimate test of leadership!

“No matter how well trained for battle the Jedi are, having to actually put those skills to use is another thing entirely. The preferred tools of the Jedi are diplomacy, harmony, education, peace. Now they find themselves leading troops on battlefields across the galaxy,” said series writer Matt Owens. “They’re going to have a lot of thoughts about this. Is this really the way to peace? Is this the position I should be taking? Is this really the path the Jedi should be walking down. Doubt is understandable, but what each individual does with that doubt is very telling of who they are and where they will end up.”

Don’t be surprised if you see familiar faces of fan favorites, which Owens promises “will feel like an organic part of the tapestry of the Star Wars universe.” This August, May the Force Be With You when Marvel releases STAR WARS: JEDI OF THE REPUBLIC – MACE WINDU #1, available wherever comics are sold!

Marvel’s WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION Begins this June — Your First Look at the New Crossover!

It’s all out Mutant Mayhem as Marvel’s WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION Begins this June — Your First Look at the New Crossover!
WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION: ALPHA #1 – In Stores June 21st!

New York, NY—May 18, 2017 —The Weapon X program is back! From writer Greg Pak (Weapon X, Totally Awesome Hulk) comes an all-new crossover between WEAPON X and TOTALLY AWESOME HULK, kicking off this June with WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION: ALPHA #1!

For years, the Weapon X Program has engineered the deadliest mutant killers on planet Earth, it was thought to be decommissioned. Now, the Weapon X program is deadlier than ever and under the leadership of its mysterious new director, has a new mission – exterminate all mutants! On their hit-list some of the deadliest mutants the Marvel Universe has ever known. However, the key to achieving their master plan of new mutant massacre is missing one vital target — Amadeus Cho, the Totally Awesome Hulk!

“The heroes and villains who have come together to battle the new Weapon X include some of Marvel’s most ruthless killers, trackers, and hand-to-hand combatants with Logan, Sabretooth, Domino, Warpath, and Lady Deathstrike,” said series writer Greg Pak. “But to stop Weapon X, our team needs the brains and brawn of Amadeus Cho, a.k.a. the Totally Awesome Hulk. The trick is that Amadeus’s cocky optimism might put him on a collision course with his own ruthless teammates. The sheer visceral fun comes from the massive mayhem of the world’s most lethal X-Men cutting loose alongside the Hulk with the fate of all mutantkind in the balance.”

Amide the already growing body count and the devastating trail of devastation, another mystery is growing, that of Weapon X’s mysterious new “Batch H” experiment.

“Batch H is the final step, the big, terrifying climax of everything that Weapon X has been working towards since our series began,” continues Pak. “And if they succeed, mutants will never face a more perfect predator or more implacable enemy!”

Be there on June 21st when WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION: ALPHA #1 kicks off and continues all summer long and be sure to pick up TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #19 and WEAPON X #4 for the prelude chapters in comic shops everywhere and don’t miss any part of this thrilling crossover!
