Official Press Release

Second print cover for "Marvel 1985"

Marvel is pleased to announce that Mark Millar's newest epic tale, Marvel 1985 #1 (of 6), has sold out at Diamond and will go back to print with Marvel 1985 #1 (of 6) Second Printing Variant, featuring the art of superstar artist Tommy Lee Edwards on the cover. Villains have begun to appear in the real world and the only one who knows they are here is a young comic fan named Toby. Not all is lost however; Toby has enlisted the help of a familiar jade giant that he only dreamt of meeting in real life! Also, Millar begins to lay the foundation for his unprecedented Marvel epic, intertwining this story with his runs on Fantastic Four and Wolverine, as the past, present and future of the Marvel U are explored!

Matthew Brady of Comicsbulletin.com exclaims "Tommy Lee Edwards delivers some incredible visuals, full of down-to-earth locations and realistic-looking characters that contrast effectively with the more simple images of the comics Toby reads."

Timothy Callahan of Comicbookresources.com also mentions "1985...reminds us of our own lost childhoods. It celebrates these lost moments, these pieces that we've forgotten."

With buzz coming in from all over, it's no secret that this highly anticipated series will continue to fly off shelves. Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Marvel 1985 as the second issue is on the horizon. Who knows what's in store for Toby and his "Incredible" new friend? Is there a line of defense ready for what the Marvel villains have in store for our world? Find out in Marvel 1985 #2 (of 6)!
