Twelve New Marvel Comics Numbering Systems Revealed
I was on a trip over this past weekend, so my trusted assistant, Will Moulton, took over writing this
newsletter for me. Will provided everyone with an incredibly diverse listing of older comics that he and
Pam have purchased over the past week. Included were remarkably long runs of
FANTASTIC FOUR (1961),
IRON MAN (1968),
SPIDER-MAN (1963), and
THOR (1962). Also included were a slew of #1 issues of
Silver Age and
Bronze Age titles, and a wonderful assortment of scarce
modern issues. If you have not already checked out this cool
listing, I urge you to do so right away.
If you do see issues included in Will's listing that you would like to add to your collection, please don't forget to type the codeword
VACATION! into the codeword box provided on our checkout form. The codeword will tell our computer to automatically deduct a full 30%
from your total order cost on all qualifying items. Almost all items listed in
Premium New-In-Stock are eligible for our
30% discount, as are most other of our ten million+
back issue comics and magazines. Only new issues, a few variants, and our slabbed issues are excluded from this generous website sale.
Speaking of back issues,
Marvel Comics is implementing a massive marketing plan for this fall (starting in September) called "LEGACY."
The primary goal of this new endeavor will be to return Marvel to the roots of it's classic storytelling, with a simultaneous return
to its original numbering sequencing for many classic Marvel Comics titles. Reviving their classic sequencing is a bit complicated,
as many Marvel titles have been restarted several times, but I do think that the editors at Marvel came up with a number scheme that works.
I am publishing their newly revised lists below, and will let you judge for yourself:
Marvel Legacy: Amazing Spider-Man
Marvel Legacy: Avengers
Marvel Legacy: Black Panther
Marvel Legacy: Cable
Marvel Legacy: Captain Marvel
Marvel Legacy: Despicable Deadpool
Marvel Legacy: Hulk
Marvel Legacy: Iron Fist
Marvel Legacy: Iron Man
Marvel Legacy: Luke Cage
Marvel Legacy: Thor
Marvel Legacy: Venom
I will close today's newsletter with a quick bit of advice: if you are missing any of the smaller "linkage" titles in the above numbering
sequences, I would urge you to pick them up now, while they are still available in many instances for mere pennies. While not as immediately
noteworthy as the core titles, most of the smaller titles had tiny print runs, and may thus prove much harder to obtain as new demand is
stimulated by this renumbering scheme. Just saying...
