This September, writers Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom will join superstar artists Francesco Manna, Michael Cho, and Gurihiru to present a titanic tale of heroes, villains, and Kaiju. And now joining the growing list of legendary artists contributing to the captivating chronicle in THE RISE OF ULTRAMAN #1 is Olivier Coipel!

The modern Marvel master joins to present

this incredible variant cover featuring not

just one, but two global pop culture icons

birthed in the 1960s... Spider-Man and

Ultraman! Having revealed Alex Ross's

cover for issue #1 earlier this week,

Marvel Comics now presents Coipel's

spectacular submission. Coipel, known

for penciling some of the most historic

and fan-favorite comics of the last several

decades has crafted every mighty Marvel

team and character imaginable—from

the Avengers to the X-Men to Thor and

so much more! 

Storytelling Higgins (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Winter Soldier) and Groom (Self/Made), together with artists Manna (Avengers, Fantastic Four), Cho (Captain America), and Gurihiru (The Unstoppable Wasp) will take fans back into the days of darkness, where the terrifying Kaiju lurk. When these monsters threaten all life as we know it, the only thing standing in their way…is the United Science Patrol! 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!
