Marvel and Mark Waid make history this July

:-)

Anyway, Mark Waid has written a lot of different Marvel characters for a long time now, and so it isn’t all that surprising that the House of Ideas would tap him to write something called The History of the Marvel Universe. Which they did. And it’s coming in July:

New York, NY—April 10, 2019—The Marvel Universe is a sprawling, interconnected web of rich history, dating back to its very beginnings…and now, it’s all coming together in a huge new story!

This July, Marvel invites readers to join legendary writer Mark Waid (Avengers No Road Home) and Exiles artists Javier Rodriguez and Alvaro Lopez for a brand-new tale in what is destined to become the DEFINITIVE history of the Marvel Universe!

HISTORY OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE will reveal previously unknown secrets and shocking revelations, connecting all threads of the past and present from the Marvel Universe! From the Big Bang to the twilight of existence, this sweeping story covers every significant event and provides fresh looks at the origins of every fan’s favorite Marvel stories!

“We’ve seen Marvel histories and Marvel encyclopedias and Marvel handbooks, and I love that stuff. I absorb them like Galactus absorbs planets,” Waid told Marvel. “This is not that. There’s information here, but there’s also a story. The Marvel Universe is a living thing, it is its own story, and we’re trying to approach it with some degree of heart to find the heart in that story so it doesn’t read like 120 pages of Wikipedia.”

It’s a story you’ve never seen before…and it all starts this July with HISTORY OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE!
