Ender Wiggin may have ended humanity's war with the Formic race in the best-selling, award-winning novel "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card, but the fight to squash the bugs began long before the battle strategist even took his first baby steps.
Now for the first time ever, fans will finally get to see how the Ender Saga first began with the upcoming seven-issue limited series THE FORMIC WARS: BURNING EARTH by Card and writer Aaron Johnston.
"This is a story that's never been told before," says Johnston. "That's what's exciting about it. This is obviously going to appeal to fans of 'Ender's Game' like myself, [who] grew up with the series and grew up with Ender. But it's also going to appeal to people unfamiliar with the series because Ender himself has no presence in the story [as] this is long before he was born."
In anticipation for the biggest sci-fi release in decades, Marvel just announced that Formic Wars: Burning Earth #1 (of 7) will be on sale February 15th, at select ComicsPRO retailers!
The long awaited and highly demanded prequel to sci-fi pioneer, Orson Scott Card’s, legendary Ender’s Saga is finally here and Marvel wants fans nationwide to celebrate a day early! Co-written by Card and Aaron Johnston with art by Giancarlo Caracuzzo, Formic Wars: Burning Earth is the untold tale of mankind’s fateful first clash with the bug-like alien race known as the Formics…and the battle that ultimately sets Ender Wiggin on his quest to quell a galaxies-wide genocide. Mark your calendars and be the first person on your block to get the dynamic first issue, a Formic Wars: Burning Earth limited-edition cover print featuring the variant artwork of superstar Bryan Hitch – only at participating ComicsPRO retailers. Fans will also have a chance to shop through some great sales and stock up on great Ender’s Game collections! And that’s not all! Both Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston will be on hand at Chapel Hill Comics in Chapel Hill, North Carolina for a fan signing!
OSC suffered a mild stroke on Saturday 1 January 2011. He is now back home, retraining his brain so that the fingers of his left hand strike the keys he's aiming for. He will not be responding to most emails because his typing time must be devoted to finishing his fiction. But he is grateful for your good wishes and he promises not to die with any series unfinished.
For the foreseeable future, OSC will not make any public appearances or undertake any travel. Since his speech is unimpaired, he will still conduct radio and recorded interviews.
