Everything old is new again. And in the case of 3 out of the 4 books unveiled today, that means more Marvel Legacy numbering.
A long Legacy
As a comic fan that goes way back, there’s a pretty big grin on my face right now. Not only are we getting Spectacular Spider-Man up to #297, which picks up right where it left off, but Daredevil will re-start at issue #595. Then Marvel Comics is going way back, for Master of Kung Fu, for issue #126 (and a new main character).
Added onto that slate today, is Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, which will continue on with issue #25. No legacy numbering for that one, or a few other books in the Marvel stable. Still, there are so many that are going back to basics, that I can forgive a couple.
Now, let’s just hope they all stay that way, and we’re not seeing a fresh offering of number ones before long. Come on Marvel, you can do it. I have confidence in you.
