As Marvel Legacy quickly approaches, Marvel Comics continues to build up the hype around the project by revealing renumbered titles, new storylines and a whole new slate of ongoing series. Now, the publisher has announced that all of the Marvel Legacy homage variants released late last month will also be available as lenticular covers.
In a press release, Marvel revealed that the lenticular covers will arrive in comic shops this fall, with limited quantities available. Though lenticular covers enjoyed massive popularity in the speculator market-era of the '90s, Marvel hasn't employed this tactic for years; DC Comics, on the other hand, just recently offered a set of lenticular covers for "The Button," the Batman and Flash four-part crossover.
Last month, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso described Legacy as "a new initiative that will take things back to our iconic history, with a firm eye on the future," adding that "Marvel Legacy will present stories that remind everyone -- newcomers and longtime fans alike -- why Marvel stands as the premier name in fiction." He would then go on to say, "Our titles will unearth gems from Marvel’s rich history, remind readers of connections between characters, and usher in the return of some major characters who’ve been missed. Above all else, we want to inject our comics with a massive dose of fun!"
Legacy kicks off in September with Marvel Legacy #1, a 50-page one-shot from writer Jason Aaron and artist Esad Ribic. The one-shot promises to tell the “startling origin of the Marvel Universe” and underscore how “it’s all connected.” The issue will also introduce the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C.
