The road to "Absolute Carnage" is paved, the "War of the Realms" is waged, and more comics are coming to Marvel Unlimited this month
A ton of new and classic comics are coming to Marvel Unlimited this month. The massive War of the Realms event kicks off in the miniseries of the same name, along with several tie-ins, and seeds are planted (or at least more seeds are planted) for the Absolute Carnage crossover series that’s going on right now.
Plus, several ongoings have some great issues hitting the platform, like our perennial favorites Daredevil and The Immortal Hulk, and there are enough Star Wars comics to pull the ears off a gundark.
I… may not totally understand that colloquialism, but hey: comics!
Check out the details below.
