Marvel solidified their partnership with Tsuburaya by publishing its first Ultraman mini-series, The Rise of Ultraman. The House of Ideas is now announcing that the Americanized Ultraman will continue his journey with The Trials of Ultraman. Writers Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom and artist Francesco Manna return for the second round which will land in March 2021.
Here’s how Marvel describes the upcoming series, which may contain minor spoilers for The Rise of Ultraman:
The new installment will pick up after the epic conclusion of THE RISE OF ULTRAMAN. Ultraman narrowly averted a catastrophe decades in the making. The world was saved – but, also, forever changed. Now… come the consequences. Much of the populace regard their defenders with suspicion. Enemies hide in plain sight, and even those closest to Shin Hayata don’t necessarily trust the Giant of Light. But at last, a long-thought-lost comrade has mysteriously returned! The RISE is over. The training wheels are off, and the stakes have never been higher. THE TRIALS OF ULTRAMAN begin here!
