Before the all-new Secret Wars takes the comic world by storm in 2015, relive the complete Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars legacy in one complete, stunning package. Hot off the heels of this year’s sold-out Marvel Famous Firsts: 75th Anniversary Masterworks Slipcase Set, Marvel have announced the MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD BOX SET SLIPCASE, a deluxe collection of 11 (yes, eleven!!) hardcovers chronicling the history of one of Marvel’s most storied events.

Coming in June 2015, readers will be transported to Battleworld and back as they experience over 30 years of Secret Wars stories in one of the most comprehensive collections we’ve ever released! Plus, each of these extremely limited box sets comes complete with a full-size poster: legendary painter Alex Ross’s rendition of the cover to Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #1!

“Our Marvel Famous Firsts: 75th Anniversary Masterworks Slipcase Set was a huge hit with fans and retailers, selling out almost instantaneously. We knew we had to follow that up with something big,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Not only do you get the entire history of Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars along with a complete hardcover jam packed with extras and bonus material, but they are all presented in one of the most stunning packages we’ve ever produced.”

The MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS: BATTLEWORLD BOX SET SLIPCASE is only available in extremely limited quantities, and will arrive at local comic shops in June 2015 containing the following volumes:
