“I’m insanely delighted to be a part of this monumental (or maybe monu-metal) 80th anniversary celebration of all things Marvel,” says Simon, “especially writing Death’s Head again. I’m dead chuffed and grateful thanks to my co-partners in this smash ‘n’ grab!”

Marvel Comics #1001 continues (and concludes) the fun that began in Marvel Comics #1000, a celebration of Marvel’s 80th Anniversary with a gathering together of what the US publisher described as “the greatest array of talent ever to be assembled between the covers of a single comic book”

Featuring “Names from the past, from the present, and even the future!” every page of each issue is filled with all-new work from a cavalcade of comic book luminaries, linking into a mystery that threads throughout the Marvel Universe — one that has its origins in Marvel Comics #1 , published back in 1939, and which unites a disparate array of heroes and villains throughout the decades.

What is the Eternity Mask, and who is responsible for the conspiracy to keep it hidden? And what new player will make their startling debut as these secrets are peeled away?

• Marvel Comics #1000 and #1001 feature the entirety of the Marvel Universe of characters and an amazing roll-call of creators, the latter on sale in all good comic shops now and both available digitally
