Marvel has shared the comic trailer featuring exclusive artwork for their upcoming series The Trials of Ultraman. The thrilling continuation of the Ultraman story launches on March 17th.

What’s Happening:

  • The Kaiju have escaped their vault. Only one hero dares to stand between humanity and these unstoppable monsters. Now begin The Trials of Ultraman!
  • In December, Marvel announced a new Ultraman series would be coming in March when they launch the continuation of the hero’s arc with The Trials of Ultraman.
  • The comic story will see the return of writers Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom and artist Francesco Manna as they dive even deeper into the fascinating Ultraman mythos.
  • The story jumps right back into the action picking up directly after Ultraman’s explosive battle with Bemular. Ultraman may have saved the world but now come the consequences.

  • The next installment will have Earth’s greatest defender contending with a suspicious populace, hidden enemies, and the mysterious return of a long-thought-lost comrade!
  • The Rise is over and now Ultraman must face his greatest challenges yet. Trials of Ultraman #1 hits stands on March 17th!


What They’re Saying:

  • Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom: “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. 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.”
