New Marvel Legacy Trailer Teases The Return Of An Icon

1 September 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For some time now, we’ve been talking about the Marvel Legacy one-shot slated to arrive in comic shops this September and understandably so. Spanning fifty pages, this oversized issue set to be written by Jason Aaron (Mighty Thor) and illustrated by Esad Ribic (Secret Wars) should not only make for a definitive read, but will also set the tone for the next year of story arcs planned by the House of Ideas.

One aspect about this standalone tale that caught our attention is that it’ll reveal the group that essentially served as the first Avengers, whom existed back in 1,000,000 B.C., to be exact. While it’s currently unknown if they’ll come across anyone resembling Raquel Welch, Marvel has released a pretty nifty trailer in the interim in order to get us geeked.

Marvel Legacy series, story titles and new numbering announced

30 June 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel has officially announced its new initiative, Marvel Legacy, which will span the entire range of comic book titles, simultaneously honoring the publisher’s past while setting the stage for the future of the Marvel universe.

The acclaimed team of writer Jason Aaron (Mighty Thor) and artist Esad Ribic (Secret Wars) reunite for an all-new 50-page blockbuster one-shot that will take us through time to the current Marvel Universe, showing us how it’s “all connected.”

“I love the concept of returning to the classic characters as they were originally portrayed, without losing the brilliance and excitement of Marvel’s newest generation of heroes,” said Chairman Emeritus Stan Lee. “Excelsior!”

“Marvel Legacy #1 isn’t simply a history lesson,” says Svp and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Rather, it’s the starting gun to a bevy of mysteries, secrets, and revelations that will reverberate across the Marvel Universe in the weeks and months to come! »

Marvel Legacy #1 And Secret Empire Omega #1 Make For Two Of Marvel’s Must Reads This September

21 June 2017 9:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel September 2017 Gallery 1 of 6

If anything, September will be an important month for Marvel because, if all goes according to plan, they’ll be just about ready to put their currently in progress crossover event, Secret Empire, behind them and poised to move forward with whatever their next major initiative may be. And while we haven’t been in contact with any flies on the walls over at the House of Ideas, we’re pretty sure the Marvel Legacy one-shot is the vanguard.

First, let’s talk a bit about Secret Empire because that seems like the logical thing to do. Not long ago, it was revealed that a tenth issue would be added to the limited series, something not unheard of when it comes to major events – especially those from Marvel. And although this would seem like a definitive end to the story, there where rumors swirling that an eleventh wasn’t out of the question.

From what we can tell, that’s not going to happen, but an epilogue of sorts in Secret Empire Omega #1 has been announced. Upon examining the solicitation below, it quickly becomes apparent that this will likely be an essential read given that it retains the very same creative team that worked on the mainline series itself.

Nick Spencer (W) • Andrea Sorrentino (A)

No More Hydra Variant Cover Also Available

Secret Empire Aftermath!

• Hydra has fallen, but the world is still not secure! As the heroes of the Marvel Universe stir from the wreckage of the battlefield, the inevitable rebuilding must begin.

• However, one question hangs in the air over the proceedings: What redemption can there be for Captain America?

40 Pgs./Rated T+ …$4.99

Should that meet its targeted September release – which may be a feat, especially when you consider that Secret Empire #6 has been delayed until July 19 – that’ll smoothly transition into the all important Marvel Legacy #1 (solicitation below). So, if the publisher does allow it to ship before Secret Empire concludes, we can only hope that it doesn’t completely spoil the crossover’s ending. But, then again, let’s not forget this is the same lot that released Who Will Wield The Shield? before Captain America: Reborn wrapped.

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!

Jason Aaron (Mighty Thor) and Esad Ribic (Secret Wars) usher in a new dawn — one whose rays will touch every corner of the Marvel Universe in the days to come!

Marvel Pays Tribute to Nirvana, Blondie, the Clash and Other Rock Gods

20 June 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel Comics' Variant series is set to honor iconic rock album covers this fall and they look amazing. The idea is pretty cool considering that a lot of record aficionados also enjoy collecting comic books(not all, but some). Back in 2015, Marvel did hip hop Variant covers to great success. A few of the best covers were Doctor Strange getting a Dr. Dre's Chronic makeover, Guardians of the Galaxy getting Pharcyde's Bizarre Ride 2 treatment, and Black Panther's T'Challa receiving a Jay-z Black Album makeover. The covers were all done by different artists that reimagined the comic book characters in their own hip hop flavored world.

Now Ryan Penagos, Marvel's vice president and executive editor of digital media, has announced that the first Marvel Rock Cover Variants will be arriving this September. The announcement was made through Penagos' Twitter page and it shows artwork inspired by Nirvana, The Clash, »

These days, variant covers have become very serious business, effectively allowing the consumer to have alternate choices as to which pieces of dynamic artwork they can add to their respective collections. Some variants may be as common as standard covers or a few may be made available to each comic shop, thereby driving up the price tag. Heck, we’ve even seen the rise of retailer and con exclusive covers in recent years, causing certain editions of books to be sought after like the Holy Grail.

Not long ago, Marvel rolled out its hip hop variants, paying tribute to some of the great album covers the genre has had to offer over the years. Basically, they take a look at the original piece and give it a bit of a superhero spin. So, having »

Marvel has announced that it is heading deep into the past – all the way to 1,000,000 BC, in fact – to introduce the very first team of Avengers as Odin, Iron Fist, Star Brand, Ghost Rider, Phoenix, Agamotto, and Black Panther come together for the startling origin of the Marvel Universe in the one-shot Marvel Legacy.

No character, no franchise will be untouched by the game-changing events that play out across its pages. Jason and Esad pulled out all the stops to fat-pack this colossal issue with as much intrigue, action, surprise, mystery, shock and adventure as possible!”

Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite Variant Covers Announced For August

18 May 2017 9:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Seeing as how DC had amazed us with its recent Injustice 2 prequel comic, it pleases us to learn that Marvel is also dipping its toe into the video game tie-in pool. Sure, they aren’t doing a full-blown tie-in series of their own – something we’re hoping they consider for the future – but their announcement of a generous helping of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite variant covers is most definitely a step in the right direction.

So, before you pick up the next installment in the popular fighting game franchise this September, be sure to stop by your local comic shop all throughout August in order to get your hands on the various participating titles. Unfortunately, we don’t know which artists will be lending their talents to this endeavor as of now, but Marvel Games executive creative director Bill Rosemann did have this to say:

Had this been a meme circulating on social media – and, thankfully, it isn’t – this would be about the time we’d say, “if you remember this, your childhood was awesome.” But, in all seriousness, if you were a kid in the 1990’s, you no doubt remember that the X-Men were absolutely huge at that time, despite the fact that they were yet to have any representation on the silver screen.

Lately, Marvel has found a variety of ways to appeal to our nostalgic sides, be it with a trailer featuring the theme song from the classic animated series or some “remastered” Jim Lee variant covers. So, it comes as no surprise that they’ve readied another round of greatness from yesteryear by rolling out X-Men trading card variant covers.
