Secret Empire #1 Gives You An Extra 8 Pages For That $4.99

Secret Empire #1 was solicited from Marvel as $4.99 for 48 pages. You would expect around 32 of those pages to be story content.

Well, maybe it's a few more, as Marvel have now increased the page count another 8 pages to 56 pages. Could the story increase a similar amount to 40 pages?

Just guesswork, But it may be opportune as the Final Order Cut-Off date is three days away, on Monday. And I'm sure Marvel would like retailers to know that if they order 200% of their Civil War II #8 numbers, they will get a hefty discount.., and be eligible for all the Secret Wars Party promotions.

Secret Empire #1 by Nick Spencer and Steve McNiven is published on the 3rd May. Although Diamond Comic Distributors prefer a different spelling.


Hey, big Spencer. Start the clock on how long it takes before that's fixed.

And yes, I embrace hypocrisy on this one.
