Secret Wars has been plagued with scheduling release snafus for the last couple of weeks/months, but even amid the confusion of what issue will arrive, when and will it overlap with the All-New, All-Different relaunch, Marvel has announced a ninth issue will be joining the event series.

Why is Marvel doing this? According to Axel Alonso, the event is really, really big.

“Apparently, Secret Wars is even bigger than we thought it was,” says Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “To help Jonathan and Esad conclude this epic event as big and bombastically as it started, we are adding an extra issue. That means one more month of the suspense, action and game-changing storytelling that fans and retailers have been clamoring for since the final incursion started.”

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE ALL-NEW ALL DIFFERENT LAUNCHES!?

“This extra issue will not affect any of the new launches as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel,“ says David Gabriel, Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing. “But there might be a surprise or two left over from Battleworld you weren’t expecting. In fact, like the original Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars, some of those puzzle pieces will hit the Marvel Universe before the event concludes. But if you want to see how they all fit together, you don’t want to miss these last few issues.”

Marvel seems pretty confident and excited about this bonus issue, and providing it actually does arrive in December, many of us will be interested to see what surprises await.
