MARVEL COMICS' ULTRAMAN

Marvel Comics has unveiled first story details and cover art for the upcoming series The Rise of Ultraman, co-helmed by writers Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom with art by Francesco Manna.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"Both known for their talents in world building, Higgins and Groom will combine their acclaimed storytelling skills with the stunning style of superstar artist Francesco Manna, who has drawn for some of Marvel's biggest series like Jason Aaronfs Avengers and Dan Slottfs Fantastic Four. As fans of the Ultraman series themselves, they will introduce Ultraman to new fans young and old and revisit the iconic era -- and spirit -- of the Ultras longtime enthusiasts know and love."

"A few years ago, thanks to my time on Power Rangers, I was able to discover and learn more about Tokusatsu," Higgins said. "With its wildly different conventions and inspirations, Tokusatsu -- and Ultraman in particular -- has been a huge source of joy for me.

"It's a genre so ripe with possibilities, even down to what we conceive of in the structure of super hero storytelling. It's both an honor and a privilege to bring Ultraman to Marvel."

"Monsters in fiction have been embodying all that is dark and scary in our world for as long as wefve been telling stories. But I don't think anybody understood the immense scale of our most pressing problems quite like Eiji Tsuburaya," Groom said. "He imagined the darkness looming overhead as tall as skyscrapers -- alien and unknowable and angry. But he also imagined us being able to stand up to those monsters, by rising above our worst impulses and embracing a nobler way of being. He imagined Ultraman. What does that mean in this complex, contradictory world of lies? We're going to find out."

The book will debut at an undisclosed date later this year.
