Prepare to Witness 'The Rise of Ultraman'

Pre-order the premier issue today, then pick it up on September 9!

In darkness...there lurks Kaiju. Terrifying and unfathomable monsters.

But between Kaiju and the rest of us stands the United Science Patrol! But who are these enigmatic defenders, and how do they perform their miracles? Shin Hayata and Kiki Fuji have spent half a lifetime trying to find out—and their quest is about to drive them toward a decades-old dark secret and put them on a collision course with a mysterious warrior from beyond the stars in THE RISE OF ULTRAMAN!

Ultraman has been a pop culture icon for over 50 years, and now, Marvel Comics will proudly contribute to the franchise’s incredible legacy at your local comic shop with September 9's THE RISE OF ULTRAMAN #1!

Writers Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom will join superstar artists Francesco Manna, Michael ChoGurihiru, colorist Espen Grundetjern, and letterer VC's Ariana Maher to reimagine the thrilling beginnings of the Ultraman phenomenon!
