Marvel has announced via press release the return of the "Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars Activity Book." Arriving in 2015 alongside Marvel's upcoming all-new "Secret Wars" event, the collection of replica coloring books, activities, sticker albums and stamp books will be loaded with games, posters and more.
Originally published in the 1980s, the original coloring and activity books were released in conjunction with the original "Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars" series. These replicas are being reproduced to tie in with the new "Secret Wars" series by Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic, which hits stands in May 2015. As the release states, the new edition comes with 160 pages of "Secret Wars"-inspired fun.
"With a new 'Secret Wars' coming in 2015, the heroes of the Marvel Universe are in for some harsh trials and tribulations," said Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel in the press release. "They won't be having much fun come 2015. But that doesn't mean you can't, dear reader! Loaded with games, goodies and more, this facsimile collection lets you experience the magic of 'Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars' as only the 1980s can provide!"
The "Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars Activity Book" returns to store shelves in March 2015. The all-new "Secret Wars" #1 hits stands in May, kicking off a year-long event that has been the subject of much speculation, most of it inspired by the 15 tie-in teaser images released following New York Comic-Con.
