Marvel Comics Announces Original Sin

Because you can never have enough big comics events*, Marvel has announced Original Sin , the eight-part blockbuster comic event of the late spring/summer, from critically acclaimed writer Jason Aaron ( Amazing X-Men , Thor: God Of Thunder ) and artist Mike Deodato Jr. ( Amazing Spider-Man , New Avengers )!

On the moon, the dead body of Uatu, the Watcher is discovered. His home destroyed. Looted of its valuable alien technology. Now, the manhunt is on. And the biggest heroes of the Marvel Universe – Captain America, Iron Man, Wolverine, Black Widow, and more are on the hunt for his murderer.

But no one is ready for the secret knowledge the Watcher held. Secrets that will shake the Marvel Universe and its heroes to their very core!

“This is basically a crime story. A murder mystery. A manhunt. But with the entirety of the Marvel Universe as its backdrop,” said Jason Aaron. We’re taking all the toys out of their packaging for this one. Everyone and everything is in play. For some characters, life will never be the same again. And it’s only a matter of time before more bodies are popping up.”

ORIGINAL SIN #1 also includes a code for a free digital copy of the very same comic on the Marvel Comics app for iOS and Android devices.

ORIGINAL SIN #1 is published in April! For more on ORIGINAL SIN, visit marvel.com and join in the conversation on Twitter with #originalsin.
