Marvel Comics #1’s Onsale In June 2015

Alright then my dear comic book maniacs we are into June which I’ve already noted as feeling like one hell of a fast surprise in another “Insights” narrative just days ago. Here we go with the Marvel Comics offerings in terms of the first issues and as we’ve also previously noted, they are in the beginning stages of the massive “Secret Wars” initiative and that is combining all of the various worlds of their stories and bringing them together for one big (dare I say it) New Universe. As we found with last month there are a lot of titles making this up and instead of parsing it into chapters I have instead alphabetized the month’s releases. Feel free to use this as a checklist when you hit the shops during June. Here we go.

"Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies" #1
“Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies” #1

Age Of Ultron Vs. Marvel Zombies #1: THE ULTIMATE DEATH SENTENCE IN BATTLEWORLD. There’s a place that’s so dangerous it’s walled off from the rest of BATTLEWORLD……where WILD ZOMBIES feast on those who’ve been banished for crimes against the state. where cold, mechanical ULTRONS destroy anything that’s human. Pity those who get caught between the two, for their death WON’T be fast and painless!
