“This is a really cool prelude that sets the stage for Eisner award-winning writer James Robinson’s SECRET WARS: ARMOR WARS techno-noir thriller. And you’ll love the detail, mood and action that superstar artist Mark Bagley delivers,” says series editor Mark Paniccia. “It’s a great introduction to TECHNOPOLIS and the earth-shattering mystery that’s at its center.”
In this directly connected Secret Wars comic, Eisner Award-winning writer James Robinson (Armor Wars, All-New Invaders) and artist Mark Bagley (Ultimate Spider-Man, Hulk) treat readers to a heart-pounding look at the events that lead to ARMOR WARS.

But, there are secrets on the street about the origin of the disease that confine the citizens of Technopolis…and key players begin to make their moves based on data that could take down the protectors of the city Tony Stark (IRON MAN) and Jim Rhodes (THOR).
