More people know about the Red Skull in the world thanks to the Captain America: The First Avenger film and now the character is getting his due in a new Secret Wars series that lands on July 1st, 2015. The new limited series takes place under the Battleworld banner and is written by Josh Williamson (Nailbiter, Birthright) and with artwork from Luca Pizzari (Amazing Spider-Man Special). Check out the cover, variant from Riley Rossmo, and several unlettered pages below.
Plot concept: The Red Skull should be dead. Banished by Doom to the Shield long ago. If the zombies haven’t gotten to him, the Ultron robots or Annihilation bugs should have! And yet word has reached the other side that he still lives, quietly amassing an army, 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 – nobody ever comes back from beyond the Shield alive! Witness the horrors of Battleworld in a new way as Williamson and Pizzari unleash RED SKULL #1 on the masses this July!
