Official Press Release

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at superstar artist, David Aja’s stunning covers to 5 Ronin! Featuring Wolverine, Psylocke, Hulk, Deadpool and the Punisher, Marvel's deadliest heroes, these covers are a must have for any fan!  Bound together by the same fate, yet alone in their existence, the Ronin are forced to walk the lonely path of the masterless samurai in the violent and tumultuous world of feudal Japan to find those who they have been wronged by.

"From the very beginning, I wanted to keep each cover down to two colors that identify with each of the five characters” explains artist, David Aja. “We set out to come up with a design that would grab your eyes from the shelves compared to the rest of the covers while keeping uniformity throughout the series and I think we accomplished that here." 

Editor Sebastian Girner adds, “They clearly show the Marvel characters we know and love, but show them in a way that signals that readers are in for something a little different. Something special.”

Will the five find their revenge? What powerful secret connects these lone warriors? Find the answers to these questions and more as 5 RONIN hits comic shops everywhere this March.


*As an added incentive, retailers will be able order any amount of either cover for each 5 Ronin issue. Retailers should check the Marvel Mailer for details.
