Everything Starts With “Marvel Legacy #1” On The Wednesday Run

Oh! Hello, Marvel Comics!  I didn’t see you there, just now.

I was about to sit down with a cup of coffee and make my list of hot, cool, new Wednesday Run comic books to pick up at my local shop!

Let’s see, there’s Black Magick #8 on my list – that’s a great series! Witchcraft and cop procedural has never been so fun! And the art is dynamite!

There’s Saga #47 – the best sci-fi/fantasy series out there right now! What heart!

I’ve got the Kamandi Challenge #9 on my list. It skewers a little younger, I know, but I love Kamandi and all that Kirby 1970’s stuff. Plus, it’s serialized by different artists and writers each month, and I love that creative idea.

What’s that you’ve got there, Marvel? A new comic book?

Well, to be honest, I’ve been a little out of the Marvel Comics loop lately. I feel you’ve left my interests in your tried and true Marvel philosophy, your Marvel legacy, willfully behind over the last few years. I don’t know if I…what’s that? You promise a return to everything I used to adore about Marvel Comics? With this one book everything about our relationship is gonna change?

I dunno. I’ve heard it before. And there’s only so much money to go around nowadays. Oh, you insist, do you?

Ok. Ok. Ok. Take it easy!

Here. Let me have a look at your Marvel Legacy #1.

Imagine a world on the grandest scale.

A world where a hovel in South America is connected to a skyscraper in New York, a beach mansion in Malibu, all the way to the floating head of a giant, mysterious celestial being.
