Marvel’s latest universe-shattering event has been a pretty compact little story compared to other recent event stories such as Civil War that seemed to span way too many books and take forever to finish. The Cataclysm story will finish in only 5 issues with the February release of Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand #5 from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Mark Bagley.
We have a preview for you of what’s to come in Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand #5 — check it out here below.
Marvel Comics is bringing the Ultimate Universe to an end with Cataclysm, a 6-issue miniseries bringing Galactus to Earth and finding allowing him to feast on the planet like a tasty appetizer! The devourer of worlds has tried to have Earth for a snack for many years and there’s something a little exciting at the thought of seeing him actually get to quell his hunger!
The miniseries comes from writers Joshua Hale Fialkov and Mico Suayan. It’s hard to believe that Brian Michael Bendis isn’t on this one, too!
Here below is the official synopsis for the series and particularly for Cataclysm #0.1 from the House of Ideas, as well as a preview of the issue.
Tonight was Preview Night at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, and yes, the Geeks of Doom crew was there in full-force.
Below are a bunch of photos we took from the convention floor.
Of note was the Marvel booth, a massive area for sure, half taken up by a recreation of Odin’s Throne in Asgard from their upcoming film Thor (see the Thor movie still of Odin’s Throne HERE).
There’s also a few shots of the Legendary Pictures booth, which showed off some costumes and props from The Dark Knight and Inception, as well as The Hangover (the pic from the latter film is truly a must-see).
A show-stopper at the Con was definitely the areas set up for The Walking Dead TV show, coming soon to AMC, which had a house filled with bloodied corpses in it. Pretty cool.
Earlier today Marvel released a teaser image with the tagline, “What is HERALDS?” with a hint at how to find out. The question was answered on tonight’s Attack of the Show, the G4 genre-focused show.
The teaser image (here at right) shows several Marvel heroines, including Agent Brand, Hellcat, Emma Frost, She-Hulk, and more. The image is a geek guy’s wet dream, with hot, scantily-clad women fighting a dinosaur, a robot, and zombies, oh my! Looks awesome to me, I’ll be picking it up, will you?
Marvel revealed info about the new series exclusively to G4TV’s Blair Butler. Heralds will be a new 5-issue weekly series, which will debut in June, about a female former herald of Galactus and a new threat she poses. Check out G4’s 4-minute video here below for more details and a sneak peek at the panels.
