Marvel’s trip down nostalgia lane continues in November with Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars: Battleworld, a miniseries that will “expose never-before-told secrets behind one of the significant conflicts in Marvel history.”

Tom DeFalco, who edited the original miniseries, will team with artist Pat Olliffe on the miniseries — reuniting the team behind the long-running Spider-Girl title.
