Marvel Comics to publish an Ultraman comic.

No release date or creative team announced yet, but this could get me buying a Marvel title on a regular basis again. Hopefully whoever they get to work on it will be fans, or at least well enough acquainted with the franchise to do a good job.

..... holy maceral.

I mean, knowing Tsuburaya's intentions I figured a licensed American comic series would be a no-brainer, but I figured it would end up at IDW, Dark Horse, or BOOM. Tsuburaya partnering with Marvel? I know people are going to wonder if this means Ultraman will join the MCU, and I severely doubt that would happen, but like DC doing Masters of the Universe comics I think we'll certainly see Ultraman encounter Marvel characters through universe hopping shenanigans. If you've ever wanted to see Ultraman throat punch Galactus, I think you're in luck.

Yes, just saw the article myself on another site. Would love to see Ultraman face off against Fin-Fang-Foom, or the host of other giant monsters in the Marvel comics of which there are a few. Tricephalus is Marvel's Ghidorah for sure.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

I'm seeing cautious optimism or full skepticism elsewhere about this - supposedly Marvel's comics aren't that good these days - but as someone who doesn't follow comics of any kind, really, I'm just happy to see another opportunity for this franchise to find footing in America. If it means we get to see Ultraman team up with the Avengers, or something, even better!

^ That's my feeling as well. I mean, I'm a lifelong Godzilla fan but I haven't bought every Godzilla comic, you know? Nevertheless, I love that they are out there. I only buy a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of .01% of Godzilla toys, too, but I love that they're out there!

Ultraman hasn't had nearly the exposure Godzilla has in American pop culture, so I just think this is really super cool. It'll be interesting to see how the Ultras and various aliens and kaiju adapt to the new medium. Even if it's a spectacular failure, it's still cool!

Maybe it's just me, but the art style of the new series, and the one from 27 years ago look similar

The new cover looks a bit more slick to me, but otherwise they do look similar. I think it's the way both covers handle the colors and shading.
I'm down for it; hopefully these will be well-drawn and written throughout.
