They are the few against the many. They can’t ever win. They can’t afford to lose. This July, enter one of Battleworld’s most dangerous areas as blockbuster creators Kieron Gillen (Darth Vader, Young Avengers) and Felipe Andrade (Rocket Raccoon, Figment) along with special guest artist James Stokoe bring you SIEGE #1! Welcome to the Shield, the last line of defense against the hordes to the south of Battleworld. Zombie armies, Ultron robots primed for destruction, and the Annihilation Wave. The Shield is the only thing that keeps them out. To patrol the Shield is to know fear, for your end could come at any moment. To man the Shield is to put your trust in the men and women standing beside you at the edge of the world. And to trust in your leader, because if you patrol the Shield – you answer to Abigail Brand! Brand and her team – Lady Katherine Bishop, Leah of Hel, Leonardo Da Vinci, Miss America Chavez, the Endless Summers and Grimm must stand alone against unstoppable darkness. For if they fail, all is lost. The valiant last stand of the unsung heroes of Battleworld begins this July in SIEGE #1!
