Marvel Legacy!! Changing The Comic Book Industry Forever By Releasing No Information (just pretty pictures)

September will see Marvel Legacy. And all that entails. Industry mouthpiece, Bleeding Cool, who seem to side more with DC these days, acts all tough and "bull-shit, Marvel!" while showing every cover it can get its tacky hands on.  Other sites seem to be joining in with various levels of enthusiasm...or lack of it, but being careful in case it is good!

Information on what Legacy entails is in very short supply.  Such short supply that I lost the info I found when I dropped it in a thimble.

Look, with great help from some awful British writers, Marvel Comics as it was died in the mid 1990s. What we have seen since then is one amazing car crash into a concrete wall after another. Kirby, then Lee out of Marvel Comics.  Things got shaky.  Shooter moves in and there was a new found life...then Shooter went. Then Marvel Comics became marvel.

Here is something to show you how much they love their pet piggy banks fans. There was a very drunk Marvel creator at a recent comic event who started talking loudly at another drunk Marvel creator. There were about 20 people in the room including two from a "Marvel mouthpiece" website. The "banter" was over how the next big Marvel event was going to better for Creator 1 and his books than creator 2 and his. Then one says to the other "You **** idiot -I can make changes before 2019" and the other then, seeming to go back to confused drunk conversation, said "I thought it was next year?" Second creator "It can't be next year. No, I'm sure -that's legacy, right?" And at this point someone senior from Marvel stepped in and both men were "talked to" and left quietly.

So, not legacy?  Another big industry changing event in 2019?  Who would have thought? (I was being sarcastic there).  The point is that 20 people involved in comics and blogs witnessed this but not one of them reported on it and it took some of them chatting to friends for the snippet to get out. Says a lot about comics media.  Yes, the twoi men and the Marvel higher up were named but I am not going to repeat those names because I was not there.

Anyway, keep going to for more covers but no information on Legacy....nothing about 2019 just Legacy!
