For fans of the Ultraman franchise, in light of their first collaboration with Marvel comics, Tsuburaya Productions will be once again combining forces with Marvel for a second installment to the Ultraman series.
Titled “The Trials of Ultraman” the new comic book series will see Mat Groom and Kyle Higgins returning to their writing positions with Francesco Manna gearing up to return to the artist position. The plot for the new series set to pick up where “The Rise of Ultraman” left off with the stakes rising higher that ever in the franchise history.
Kyle Higgins had this to say: “In The Rise of Ultraman, we had to create a whole new universe (built on the powerful concepts and characters of the original television shows). Then, in the final issue of Rise, we turned that world upside-down,” he said. “Now, in The Trials of Ultraman, we get to really explore this new universe – the consequences of decisions made in Rise, and the possibilities (as well as tensions) of a newly-fantastical global community. The introduction is over… now, we’ll be diving into the real meat of our Ultraman saga. And the stakes and scale will only continue to grow.”
For those eager to get their hands on the upcoming The Trials of Ultraman series, it will be released in March of 2021.
