It has been an eventful week for Ultraman. The newest movie, Shin Ultraman, was number one in Japanese Box Offices. It became not only the highest-grossing Ultra Film in the series but the highest-earning debut weekend for a live-action Japanese film in 2022 so far.
In the newest chapter of Ultraman’s adventure into the world of Marvel titled The Mystery of UltraSeven, Writer Kyle Higgins and artists Mat Groom and Davide Tinto will continue to dive deep into the secrets behind the pop culture icon’s fascinating mythology in an adventure that will thrill longtime fans of the global phenomenon and welcome Ultraman newcomers. In addition, the double-sized debut issue will include an additional story spotlighting the history of Ultra Q and more instructional Kaiju Steps by Gurihiru.
“Kyle and I’s reimagination of this universe started with a long-term masterplan — which is why we featured Dan Moroboshi’s mysterious disappearance in the very first pages of THE RISE OF ULTRAMAN, It’s so exciting to have reached the stage where we can now pull back the curtain on that mystery…and its world-shaking implications!”Mat Groom, Marvel Comic Book Artist

“Giant Kaiju roam, a sinister conspiracy consolidates power, and there’s nobody left to stop it — because Ultraman is GONE! How did the situation go so wrong…? And how can the United Science Patrol claw their way back from the brink? The answers lie in the appearance of an enigmatic new Ultra and a secret that has remained hidden for decades. From distant stars to lost dimensions, untangling this twisted web will require Shin Hayata to go farther and fight harder than ever before.“
