In 2008, Marvel Comics published Captain America White #0 by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. Another of their “colour” volumes that would include Daredevil Yellow, Spider-Man Blue and Hulk Grey, there were sadly no subsequent issues of the expected six-issue series.
Well, at the C2E2 Retailer Breakfast held this morning, and attended by Bleeding Cool’s David Swallow and Peter G, we learnt that Marvel have stated the finished book will be published before next year’s Captain America: Civil War movie, with #1 for September, seven years late.
Also in scheduling news, Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham‘s Miracleman will be republished from September, first the reprints and then brand new issues from the pair,
As well as a jam cover from original artists John Totleben, Garry Leach, Alan Davis and Rick Veitch.
Marvel talked about making more effort to keep best selling backlist in stock, a constantly reported problem by retailers trying to keep graphic novels in stock. It looks like this is a definite change of policy for the publisher as multi-media interest continues to drive sales of collected comic book.
The entire Star Wars line has also seen increasing orders each month, and we will see a lot more of Dr Aphra from Darth Vader. They also expect big things from the 4 issue Force Awakens prequel.
