I'm off-line tomorrow. Family funeral. First day I'll have taken off Bleeding Cool in eight years.
Which means it will be Saturday until I see what is so important about Marvel Legacy, Marvel's upcoming comic book and relaunch event, that will be announced on Friday.
But important it apparently will be. "Honoring the Past while Proudly Stepping Towards the Future", that kind of thing. And, as the title of this piece says, affecting every Marvel title, character and story.
Get ready for a new dawn True Believers — one whose rays will touch every corner of the Marvel Universe in the days to come! Tomorrow, get ready for the return of what you've been longing for — and more! Prepare for the debut of MARVEL LEGACY!
"A new initiative that will take things back to our iconic history, with a firm eye on the future, MARVEL LEGACY will present stories that remind everyone — newcomers and longtime fans alike — why Marvel stands as the premier name in fiction," said Editor in Chief Axel Alonso. "Our titles will unearth gems from Marvel's rich history, remind readers of connections between characters, and usher in the return of some major characters who've been missed. Above all else, we want to inject our comics with a massive dose of fun!"
Kicking off this September with MARVEL LEGACY #1, an over-sized 50-page, one-shot special, Marvel Comics titles step towards a bright new future – one that harkens back to what has made Marvel a household name while looking towards tomorrow. With fun and thrilling reveals primed to excite fans, both existing and new, this fall, prepare for MARVEL LEGACY!
I'll look forward to finding out what it's all about… on Saturday.
