Empyre, Marvel’s next big event is fast approaching. The next chapter of the Kree-Skrull War is about to unfold, this time with the two alien races united behind Hulkling with an entire armada heading towards Earth. To prepare for this huge conflict, Marvel has released a trailer featuring never-before-seen artwork.
The Kree/Skrull war is one of the deepest cuts in the Marvel cosmos. And whether you’re new to the Marvel Universe or have been a fan since the very beginning, Empyre will touch on a part of this conflict you care about.
Empyre #1 is written by Dan Slott and Al Ewing and illustrated by Valerio Schiti. It features a main cover by Jim Cheung.
Co-writer Al Ewing added:
The two star-spanning empires have kept each other in check for generations, keeping each other from getting too strong, so both of them aligning together after all this time is probably bad news. Some of the twists and turns we’ve got waiting for readers will be genuinely shocking.
Empyre #1 is set for release on July 15th, 2020.
