THE SEARCH FOR TONY STARK CONTINUES!
• TONY’S BACK!

Marvel Knights Gets a 20th Anniversary Trade Program

Visionary creators such as Joe Quesada, Brian Michael Bendis, Alex Maleev, Garth Ennis, Christopher Priest, Steve Dillon, David W. Mack, Grant Morrison, Jimmy Palmiotti, Jae Lee, Kevin Smith, Jeph Loeb, and more created the stories that would change the comics industry! And together, with co-founders and editors Quesada and Palmiotti at the helm, they would become superstar legends for their revolutionary work!

With Marvel Knights, Marvel traded traditional style for daring storytelling, creating new and bold tales for Marvel icons such as Punisher, Daredevil, The Inhumans, Black Widow, and Black Panther. By reinventing classic characters and focusing on strong stand-alone story arcs, Marvel Knights nearly recreated the Original Graphic Novel as monthly comic format – and became the industry’s spark that paved the way for the bright and intrepid stories of today’s heroes!

This fall, in honor of the critically acclaimed imprint’s 20th anniversary, Marvel is celebrating the inception of Marvel Knights by bringing fans a uniform set of new trade paperbacks featuring the best of Marvel Knights, as well as two brand new Omnibus editions. Find your favorite in your local comic shop starting this September!

Review: Marvel Legacy #1

It all starts here…

It begins at the dawn of the human race, and ends with a child’s prayer! In between, empires fall, mysteries brew, secrets are revealed, quests are undertaken and legends are forged! All leading up to the dramatic return you’ve been waiting for – and one you’ve been dreading!

After months of build up, Marvel Legacy #1 kicks off the next phase of the Marvel universe much like the numerous “bridge” issues we’ve seen post major events. It does a decent job of setting things up and teasing what’s to come, but as a read on its own, the issue feels a bit lacking.

Written by Jason Aaron with art by Esad Ribic, Russell Dauterman, Chris Samnee, Alex Maleev, Stuart Immonen, Pepe Larraz, Jim Cheung, Daniel Acuna, Greg Land, Ed McGuinness, and Steve McNiven, Marvel Legacy is a bunch of segments acting as preludes as to what’s to come down the road. It’s not a complete story instead catching us up on where characters are and where things will go.

It’s not bad at all and much of what it teases has me excited and wanting to see where it all goes, which is its goal. However, there’s something that feels a bit hollow about it. It doesn’t do much of a job of addressing the social ramifications of Secret Empire, just its impact on institutions and the teases shown will only really excite die-hard Marvel fans.

Infinity Stones are thrown into the mix, Celestials are focused on, and a legacy of characters is presented with an Avengers team from a billion years ago and not a whole lot of explanation about them other than they’re earlier versions of today’s characters. It’s pieces of a puzzle that forces the reader to connect the dots and I’m not sure there’s enough to interest new ones, though there should be enough to interest old ones.

In other words, this issue plays to Marvel’s long history and backstory that only the die-hards will really appreciate. It’s audience are the Wednesday warriors, not new readers. And in that way, it feels like a missed opportunity.

There’s lots of reveals and returns of characters, things I’m not going to spoil in this review like other sites. Instead the primary enjoyment is that discovery but I hope you know your Marvel history to truly get it.

The art is solid and beautiful at times, no shocker with the artistic team assembled, so even if the story falls flat the art is at least great to look at.

Whil not bad, it also feels like it’s a missed opportunity. The issue plays to those who know Marvel’s history with the full enjoyment only really being experienced when you truly understand everything you’re reading. This is the trailer for the film to come and like a trailer, it has me interested in what’s to come but in itself, it’s not a complete story.
