Marvel Comics: The CB Cebulski Generation Begins!


#309

As I mentioned in the new comics thread. I don’t think it’s so much ‘not working’ as they don’t need it to as much. DC had hit the doldrums before Rebirth. They needed a hit desperately and for the new direction to work and took a profits hit, now they don’t need to as much.

It’s all a balance of supply and demand. Conversely while Marvel’s Legacy isn’t as cheap they are in need of a big hit right now and they have been selling comics of a similar size in the last few months for $9.99 so have come down 40% to give this a boost.

We’ll see if they have calculated correctly when the sales come in. If either are deeply disappointing I expect the loss leaders could return.

Now, THIS is how you write T’Challa:


#311

is this the current BP? I’m looking for a good jumping on point for the character.


#312

It is, from a recent issue of Captain America: Steve Rogers.

But, if you really want to see T’Challa done right, check out the Priest and Hudlin runs.

1998 Marvel Knights series?


#314

Marvel are giving away free digital copies of all the new X-Men #1s. Just enter ICEMAN at http://marvel.com/redeem to get them.

Thanks for the tip. I’m reading Marvel exclusively on Unlimited now, so nice to get a chance to check these out earlier than i would otherwise.


#316

Nice one. I had been wanting to try Iceman.


#317

So it’s a… cool book?


#318

Thanks, Paul.


#319

Still not buying some Marvel.


#320

Technically, you would not be buying the books.


#321

#322

Thanks, Paul.

If they’re going to have Ultimate Thor’s Mjolnir in the Marvel Universe, this actually sounds like a pretty interesting use of it.


#325

I’ve read that issue and it kinda broke my heart. Someone so kind and generous being so broken that he would pick up that hammer was really sad.


#326

So, have Marvel announced how Legacy will “change the comic book industry” yet? Because all I see is a load of covers for titles, with no creative teams mentioned at all.


#327

They’re doing it all without creative teams. That’s how they’re going to change it. :wink:


#328

Not only are those just…regular cover homages, but they didn’t even use a Devil Dinosaur cover for Moon Girl.

Legacy, eh?
