What's @ Comic Shops: Marvel Legacy #1 Launch Parties on September 27

This fall, MARVEL LEGACY #1 will guide you through the pages of time, back to the dawn of 1,000,000 BC – when the very first Avengers took up the responsibility of being heroes. And this action-packed 50-page issue is just the tip of the iceberg for the coming MARVEL LEGACY, which finds all our heroes on journeys that will change them forever. A time when every series in the Marvel Universe will be an event within itself!

MARVEL LEGACY #1 provides the starting point for more than a year’s worth of stories. Mysteries, returns, and infinite possibilities await Marvel readers. This is the one comic no one will want to miss, and what better way to debut it than with a party!

To celebrate the kickoff to this blockbuster event, Marvel will partner with participating local comic shops to host MARVEL LEGACY #1 LAUNCH PARTIES. In addition to exclusive variant covers, participating local comic shops will receive exciting promotional items.

FOOM Magazine returns, and will be presented in a format similar to the fan favorite magazine of the 70’s. Included within its pages are in-depth articles about the creation of MARVEL LEGACY, an overview of the many EIC’s that have forged Marvel Comics over the years, an examination of the Marvel bullpens of the past, a spotlight on the Infinity trilogy, a guide from Deadpool that looks ahead to his newest Legacy book – and so much more!
