Ender's Shadow: Battle School #1
I know that some people are really hardcore about Ender's Game but I'm gonna admit that I never read it.  I have absolutely no idea what it's about.  For those that liked it, these comics have to be a cool thing.  Orson Scott Card is over seeing them to make sure they stay true to the source.  Here's an early preview (meaning no text) for the next series.

Marvel is proud to present the second comic book adaptation of New York Times Bestselling author Orson Scott Card’s epic Ender’s Game series with the premiere of Ender’s Shadow: Battle School #1 (of 5)!  Acclaimed scribe Mike Carey (X-Men: Legacy) and rising star artist Sebastian Fiumara introduce you to Bean, the only one student at Battle School smarter than the famous Ender Wiggin.  Born in an illegal genetic engineering laboratory, Bean grew up an orphan living off the brutal streets of Rotterdam.  Now, he’s been recruited to Battle School, where he’ll make new friends, new enemies, and embark on the adventure of a lifetime—saving the Earth! This issue also features a variant cover by superstar Jim Cheung!

Daniel Crown of IGN.com raves, “I’m increasingly impressed by Marvel’s recent run of adaptations, and [Ender’s Game] is yet another testament to their existence.”

Witness the origin of one of the most influential characters in one of the greatest science fiction classics of all time!  Trust us, no comic fan can afford to miss Ender’s Shadow: Battle School #1 (of 5)!
