Comic fans! Marvel is on the cusp of it’s largest publishing initiative of the last 15 years! What is it, you might ask? We’re here to give you all the info.
We like to think that the overall theme with Legacy is BETTER MARVEL COMICS. Marvel is bringing back all the characters you know and love, and keeping most of the new characters that have been really fun to read like Ms. Marvel and Miles Morales. Some other minor changes (like legacy numbering of comics that have been around forever) are also in the works, but this seems like a back to basics approach.
It All Starts With Generations…
Generations is a series of 10 single issue comics that pairs a classic Marvel character with their modern day counterpart. These even feature the return of many classic characters that have been absent of late – we can’t wait to see how these play out.
Here’s a checklist of all the MARVEL GENERATIONS one-shots:
- GENERATIONS: HULK #1 – 8/2/17
- GENERATIONS: PHOENIX #1 – 8/9/17
- GENERATIONS: WOLVERINE #1 – 8/16/17
- GENERATIONS: THOR #1 – 8/23/17
- GENERATIONS: HAWKEYE #1 – 8/30/17
- GENERATIONS: IRON MAN #1 – 9/6/17
- GENERATIONS: CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 – 9/13/17
- GENERATIONS: CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 – 9/27/17
- GENERATIONS: SPIDER-MAN #1 – 9/27/17
…And Continues With Legacy #1
This is THE COMIC you have to read! Written by Jason Aaron with art by Esad Ribic, this oversized issue sets the groundwork for everything to come.
Jason is really excited for this one:
“It begins at the dawn of the human race, and ends with a child’s prayer! In between, empires fall, mysteries brew, secrets are revealed, quests are undertaken and legends are forged! All leading up to the dramatic return you’ve been waiting for and one you’ve been dreading!”
Legacy takes us waaaaay back to the beginning, to the inception of the Marvel universe, and brings us up to the present. We’ve likened this comic to the DC Rebirth one-shot that set the stage for all of DC’s Rebirth plans.
This. Book. Is. Huge.
From Legacy forward – read what you enjoy! There will be a lot of great jumping on points for new and old fans alike. Each comic will tell it’s own epic story, and we hope you end up finding more to love with Marvel Legacy. Thanks guys!
