Official Press Release

Marvel is pleased to announce that Secret Invasion: War of Kings has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level) and will return with Secret Invasion: War of Kings Second Printing Variant. From the fan favorite creative team of writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (better known as DnA) and artist Paul Pelletier, this is the one-shot kicking off the biggest cosmic super hero event of the century! In the aftermath of Secret Invasion, the Inhumans must return to the Kree world—but first it’s time to exact revenge on the remaining Skrulls! Meanwhile, how will Vulcan and his Shi’Ar Empire respond? This new printing features Pelletier’s powerful interior art on a new cover!

“From its explosive opening salvo, Secret Invasion: War of Kings immediately engages the reader… Pelletier does a fantastic job of capturing each scene”—Richard Rentaria, Newsarama.Com

“A Must Read… it's easy to call [Pelletier’s] work a success here.”—Bryan Joel, IGN.Com

“Secret Invasion: War of Kings works as an entertaining, action-packed prologue to the War of Kings event.”—WeeklyComicBookReview.Com
