". . .acclaimed novelist Orson Scott Card would be writing a six-issue "Ultimate Iron Man" mini-series with pencils by Andy Kubert. In addition, it was noted the book would feature a cover enhancement like we used to see in the '90s, a foil cover by Bryan Hitch. Marvel told Time.com, "If you thought The Ultimates told you everything you needed to know about Ultimate Iron Man, think again."


Card's best known as the author of "Ender's Game" in 1986 and the sequel "Speaker for the Dead" in 1987. A first for any novelist, both won the prestigious Hugo & Nebula awards each year. The "Ender's Saga," as it's come to be known, has spawned six novels total and "Ender's Game" has been set up with Director Wolfgang Peterson for a major motion picture with Warner Bros."


Thought Chief might like this news.

Newsarama, natch..




In its most recent communication with retailers, Marvel has noted that writer Orson Scott Card has requested that Ultimate Iron Man be changed from one six-issue miniseries to two five issue miniseries, as his storyline has expanded during the writing process.


Marvel has agreed, and all future solicitation information will now note that the ongoing Ultimate Iron Man miniseries is now five issues. There was no word as to whether or not artist Andy Kubert will continue as the artist on the second miniseries.
