Wolverine, Psylocke, Punisher, Hulk and Deadpool are '5 RONIN'

Take 5 of the most popular (and deadliest) characters in the Marvel Universe, add a star-studded line-up of comic creators, throw in a feudal Japanese backdrop, and what do you get? 5 RONIN, a 5-issue event scheduled for March 2011.

“What would the ultimate samurai super hero epic look like? The answer is 5 RONIN” explains Editor Sebastian Girner. “When we came up with the idea of taking our biggest heroes and setting them in this time period, writer Peter Milligan and the amazingly talented cast of artists immediately jumped on board. This is easily one of the most beautiful comics you will read this year.”

Five superheroes seeking revenge...what is the deadly secret that binds them together? Find out in 5 RONIN, written by Peter Milligan, drawn by Tomm Coker, Dalibor Talajic, Laurence Campbell, Goran Parlov & Leandro Fernandez, with covers by John Cassaday, Mark Brooks, Giuseppe Camuncoli, David Mack, Ed McGuiness & David Aja.

The books will run for $2.99 each and carry a parental advisory.
