Jonathan Hickman and Valerio Schiti's New Vision for Marvel Cosmology Continues in 'G.O.D.S. #2'

Take a look at the covers and check out a sneak peek of 'G.O.D.S.' #2, on sale November 8.

This week, readers discovered a side of the Marvel Universe they never imagined existed in Jonathan Hickman and Valerio Schiti’s G.O.D.S. #1!

The highly-anticipated issue will return to comic shops with a second printing on November 1, and a week later, a new chapter arrives in G.O.D.S. #2. Today, see all three G.O.D.S. #2 covers and the main cover by Mateus Manhanini, as well as variant covers by Alan Quah and Mike Del Mundo, along with never-before-seen interior artwork.

This once-in-a-generation comic series kicked off a bold transformation of the Marvel cosmology with the introduction of The-Powers-That-Be and The-Natural-Order-Things. These two opposing groups of mystics and scientists serve Marvel’s legendary pantheon of cosmic entities, and their eons-old conflict has finally come to light! 

In G.O.D.S #1, Wyn—chosen avatar of The-Powers-That-Be—gathered with the 100 brilliant minds of the The-Natural-Order-Of-Things, including his ex-wife Aiko Maki, to prevent a reality-shattering Babylon Event! The mystery behind this threat and its culprit, Cubisk Core, will deepen in future issues as Hickman and Schiti open the floodgates to this new mythology with new versions of Marvel’s classic abstract entities and more insights into the secret history and methods of The-Powers-That-Be and The-Natural-Order-Of-Things.

In the all-new G.O.D.S. #2 preview, behold Wyn joining forces with Doctor Strange, Clea, and more to track down Cubisk Core. Then, see Mia the Magic Girl—a young mage with startling potential—take her first steps towards an uncertain destiny as she’s recruited by Aiko Maki. 

"We don't get a lot of opportunities to try out brand-new properties in the current market," Hickman told retailers in a special video conference. "And I think that this represents not just a solid effort by the company, but a real swinging for the fence by Valerio, Marte [Gracia], and I, and everybody involved in the production of the book, to really put something new out there."
