MARVEL STATEMENT ON LEGACY NUMBERING
The high-numbered Marvel titles carrying over from “Marvel Legacy” will have dual numbering beginning in May – so Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness’s Avengers #1 in May 2018 will also be Avengers #691, carrying over the numbering from the “No Surrender” weekly arc.
“Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises – new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines – all the big stuff that we’ve been building towards since LEGACY began,” said Tom Brevoort, Marvel’s Senior VP of Publishing and Executive Editor.
“This isn’t a clearing of the slate – while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we’ll be maintaining the classic ‘Legacy’ issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well. Oh, and don’t read anything into not seeing a character on the Jim Cheung piece… we can only squeeze so many characters onto there without killing poor Jim!”http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/marvel-statement-on-legacy-numbering/http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Marvel-Logo-600x257.pnghttp://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Marvel-Logo-150x64.pngNews
