Marvel’s Secret Empire Starts Earlier Than We Thought (SPOILERS)

Those who have been perusing Marvel’s solicitations for April have noticed an entry for Secret Empire #0 when there is no such solicitation listing previously. Could this be an early and currently hidden publication date for the upcoming series? Could it be Marvel’s Free Comic Book Day’s title, delivered early to stores, for May – Bleeding Cool already reported it would be Secret Empire related?

We don’t know.

Something we do know however, is that Secret Empire actually starts… tomorrow.

In Civil War II: The Oath by Nick Spencer, Rod Reis, Phil Noto, Raffaele Ienco, Syzmon Kudranski and Dono Sanchez-Almara.

Yes, it is odd that Civil War II still hasn’t properly concluded.

What’s odder is that they actually started what Secret Empire will be about in the vestiges of the previous big event…

The comic has been delayed months. But this scene featured does rather bring it bang up to date.

One thing. If you are going to read tomorrow’s Captain America: Steve Rogers as well – read that first. And you may realise why The Oath was delayed so long.
