THE LEGENDARY GEORGE R.R. MARTIN SUPER HERO SERIES COMES TO MARVEL! Spanning more than 25 novels- more than 20 short stories- released over three decades and written by more than 40 authors- the Wild Cards series tells the story of an alternate history in which the Earth is home to super-powered individuals. When a human is infected with the alien 'Wild Card' virus- the odds are that they will be killed…which is referred to as 'drawing the black queen.' Of those who survive- the bulk of them become 'jokers-' left with some strange mutated form. A lucky few are called 'aces-' those gifted with super-powers they can put to use toward heroes goals…or villainous ones. Now- for the first time in comic book form- see how the Wild Cards universe began with an adaptation of the very first stories in the original Wild Cards novel. Based on stories by Harold Waldrop- Roger Zelazny and series mastermind and editor- George R.R. Martin- Wild Cards is a stellar introduction to a whole new world reshaped by the emergence of superpowers. RATED T+
