After his introduction 30 years ago in “Future Imperfect” the Maestro – the master of what remains of the world – has been a fascinating villain in the Marvel Universe. We didn’t know how he rose to power or how the Earth fell or what happened to the world’s heroes…until now. Or rather, until August. Marvel Comics has announced Maestro #1 from writer Peter David and artists German Peralta and Dale Keown that will delve into the origin of this character.
Writer Peter David says:
I had no idea that when I first created the Maestro for Future Imperfect, that he would have the kind of popularity and staying power he has now. Until now, I’ve only been able to allude to his origins, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to explore them in this series, and I can’t wait for fans to see all the artwork that’s been coming in!
While Maestro #1 will answer some questions that have plagued Hulk fans for years, it will inspire some new ones along the way.
Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski added:
We couldn’t be more excited that we’re resuming distribution of Marvel Comics to the best fans in the world. As we’ve announced, we will be observing a balanced release schedule over the next few weeks as the industry returns to normal – but we’re hard at work on many more new stories like this one, and we can’t wait to tell you all more about them! Expect more announcements very soon.
Maestro #1 features a main cover by Dale Keown and a variant cover by George Perez. It’s set for release in August 2020.
