Here’s the cover, official solicit, and a quote from Alex Paknadel.
Series writer Alex Paknadel let us know, “The Celestial Messiah is one of the more conflicted and intriguing players in the Empyre event, so I was thrilled when Marvel approached me to bring his story to life.” Paknadel goes on to say, “This tie-in is an all-you-can-eat buffet of high-stakes cosmic melodrama and I had an absolute blast writing it.”
The eve of Quoi’s ascension is at hand! But when the trials are interrupted by an unexpected interloper—Mantis—who will win this battle of wills?
