More Marvel NOW Comics To Come – And Not Just New Titles Get An #1

Marvel's Senior VP – Sales David Gabriel has been talking to Diamond Comic Distributors' retailer site about upcoming titles and the Marvel NOW! Previews and catalogue.

And letting us know that there are more Marvel NOW! titles yet to be announced…



So while there are plenty of new books getting new issue ones… what about the ones that aren't. Won't they feel left out? Gabrial has a plan. Take this cover to Captain America: Sam Wilson #13.


It's also #1! He says,

Jumping on points are also reflected in brand new trade dress. Jumping on points for continuing titles will be labeled with bright red corner box with a #1 signifying the first part of a new story and the story arc title. Similar to what we had done a few years ago with a variety of continuing titles.  Some folks loved it, some folks hated it, but it definitely sent a clear message!

And as for actual #1 launches? What differentiates them?

Brand new launches will feature a clearly marked #1 as seen on the below cover for Champions #1. These bright corner boxes pop off the shelves and will help draw customers to the new titles on store racks.

Can anyone see a real difference?
