As more and more miniseries and events are being announced for the upcoming Secret Wars bonanza, Marvel Comics has announced another project with the June debut of Star-Lord & Kitty Pryde. This series is set to be placed within the Battleworlds imprint of the event as it deals with the Kitty from the Age of Apocalypse era with our more familiar Star-Lord and the complications of relationships within all of this. The series comes from writer Sam Humphries and Marvel newcomer Alti Firmansyah.
“Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde is an action romantic comedy,” says Sam Humphries, in an interview with Marvel.com. “It is the emotional and spiritual continuation of the great Peter Quill/Kitty Pryde romance that has been developing in Legendary Star-Lord. It’s going to be funny, and fun – but also heartbreaking and thrilling.”
Check out the first cover reveal below!
Plot concept: The events of Secret Wars have brought these two together once more. Yet, hailing from entirely different realities, can these two-star crossed lovers reconcile their feelings for one another – even though they are not the ones they know?! Sure – if they don’t kill each other first! The Kitty Pryde from the Age of Apocalpyse domain learned a long time ago not to trust anyone. Especially strangers from other realities who claim to be her boyfriend!
Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde are finally together in their own series! But are they TOGETHER together? The burgeoning romance of these two fan-favorite characters will be tested like never before on the surface of Battleworld. Will their love triumph across space and time? Or will the events of Secret Wars prove too much? The answers lie within True Believer – so don’t miss STAR-LORD AND KITTY PRYDE #1 on sale this June!
