Welcome to our Merry Media Month of May my Friends, I hope you are ready for some Marvel-ous times this month. It appears that we not only have a whole fresh crop of first issues launching this month but the much-anticipated sequel to “Guardians Of The Galaxy” will open up this coming Friday. Some of the new series have a second issue coming out this month so I said what the heck and decided to share that here in this post as well. As usual the cover art and overall premise of these titles comes from the House Of Ideas itself and while there are NUMEROUS variant covers coming out for so many of these issues, I have only placed the cover of the main standard issues. We have a lot of ground to cover in this one so let’s get started shall we? Here we go.
SECRET EMPIRE #1 (of 9): It’s been building for months, across a bevy of titles! But now, the moment has arrived for Steve Rogers to step into the light and declare his allegiance to Hydra! How can the heroes of the Marvel Universe cope with this shattering betrayal by the most trusted figure among them? And what will this mean for the world? The map of the Marvel Universe changes in ways nobody will expect — TRUST THE SECRET EMPIRE!

SECRET EMPIRE #2 (of 9): Enshrouded in darkness, plagued by the minions of Baron Mordo and cut off from all assistance, The Defenders and Doctor Strange struggle to save the lives of the innocent people consigned to this hell on Earth. Will Dagger prove to be the key to stopping this nightmare? Meanwhile, will the appearance of a new hero provide Iron Man with the key to Captain America’s startling change? THE SECRET EMPIRE WILL DEFEND YOU!
