Marvel Reveals the Battleboard
Not to be outdone by DC's Multiversity map --- first spotted at last year's San Diego Comic-Con and since made available through retailers --- Marvel is releasing its own physical, foldable, pin-up-on-your-wall-able map of its multiverse. Of course, this multiverse is squished together into one bite-sized nugget (if you're Galactus) for Secret Wars. The Battleboard doesn't actually tell us anything we don't already know; it's the same map we've seen before, and the covers for all the books Marvel has already announced, including the newly announced Guardians of Knowhere, a Guardians of the Galaxy continuation from Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato. But the Battleboard does tell us what we don't already know --- known unknowns, if you will --- with nine cover slots marked as 'Classified'. So there are definitely nine more Secret Wars books to be announced, and maybe only nine more?
