A new three part limited series has been announced as part of the Battleworld branding for Secret Wars this summer with the July debut of Red Skull. The new book gives the villain his leading moment as it’s brought together by writer Josh Williamson (Birthright, Nailbiter) and artist Luca Pizzari.
“I’ll be honest, this book is super dark,” promises writer Josh Williamson in an interview with Marvel.com. “It matches what you’d expect a book based around someone as horrible as the Red Skull. Prepare for a very twisted tale. If you’re a fan of my books you know I enjoy writing some pretty dark characters in some very messed up situations. Marvel has let me do that here as well.”
Plot concept: The Red Skull should be dead. Banished beyond the Shield long ago, if the zombies haven’t gotten to him, the Ultron robots or Annihilation bugs should have! Any yet word has reached the other side that he still lives, quietly amassing his forces, prepared to strike!
Now, a team of unlikely villains – Magneto, Winter Soldier, Lady Deathstrike, Electro, Moonstone and Jack O’Lantern will venture beyond safety to find the truth for themselves. Only problem – beyond the Shield, nobody ever comes back alive!
