The Low Down: Marvel Legacy Comics This Week

Posted by on Dec 13, 2017 in Store News

      If you’re not a Marvel Comics collector but have been inside a comic shop this fall, you’ve probably noticed that the issue numbers for many Marvel books are a lot higher than practically every other book on the racks. This is no mistake: this is Marvel Legacy. Marvel Legacy is the promotional campaign name for the company’s decision to renumber many of their comic titles. The idea is that this is being done in recognition of the just how long those titles have been running. Essentially, each issue’s number represents (more or less) how many consecutive months those titles have been running–even though so many of them have been stopped and restarted more than a couple times. In our blog post last week, we detailed the reasons for this change in Marvel’s comic books and provided some extra insight (via this cbr.com article) about the whole Marvel Legacy initiative. Marvel also made some handy information slicks to show readers how they came to decide what issue number each of their long-running titles would start at. I came across all the renumbering information slicks in one spot and was quickly overloaded by all the changes and histories of all the books. Rather than inundate our blog visitors with all the information slicks...

Making Sense of Marvel Comics’ Legacy Issue Numbering

Posted by on Dec 9, 2017 in Store News

      Last month, the entire Marvel Comics line of books did a relaunch …of a sorts. The relaunch was dubbed, Marvel Legacy and introduced one very noticeable change. Marvel makes arguably the best super-hero movies, and they dominate the movie theaters. But their domination of the comic shelves is less assured: Marvel Legacy has barely registered on peoples’ radars in the way that Marvel’s movies do. Had the Marvel Legacy relaunch happened at any other time, it...

The Unlikely Return of Dice Masters!

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in Store News

Post by Kyle It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged about Dice Masters! Though I’m sure today’s blog title makes me sound like not much of a proponent for Dice Masters, I really am! To be honest, I’ve just rediscovered the joys of the game over the last few weeks after playing in some of the store’s events! So why such a back-handed compliment for this game that I supposedly like so much? Well, that will require some...
