Last Fall, the creators of the giant rubber-suited monster-fighting Ultraman franchise, Tsuburaya, announced that they were working with Marvel to produce a new Ultraman comic for the West. Today, at Chicago’s C2E2, Marvel revealed the creative team and title for the 5-part Ultraman mini-series: The Rise of Ultraman.
The Rise of Ultraman will be written by Kyle Higgins and Matt Groom, with art provided by Francesco Manna. No real details were given about what the mini-series will be about, but Marvel did say that the first issue would “revisit the classic first generation of the worldwide phenomenon”.
The warrior from the Land of the Light will land on comic shelves later in 2020.
