Has it been hours since Marvel changed the comics industry forever with their first set of homage covers and title reveals for their upcoming Marvel Legacy event? Or has it been weeks? We’ve completely lost track of time in the the aftermath of so much industry-changing news in such a short time period. When’s the last time we’ve had anything to eat? Is there anyone still alive out there? Are we all alone?!
The world may be an apocalyptic wasteland with flesh-eating zombies roaming the ruins of what we once called civilization, but we’re going to see this through, god dammit. Somebody has to keep the memory of humanity alive, or all hope is lost!
“A new initiative that will take things back to our iconic history, with a firm eye on the future, MARVEL LEGACY will present stories that remind everyone — newcomers and longtime fans alike — why Marvel stands as the premier name in fiction,” said Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso in a press release yesterday, back when words meant something and we weren’t cowering in the pile of rubble that was once our office, drenched in urine and stinking of fear. “Our titles will unearth gems from Marvel’s rich history, remind readers of connections between characters, and usher in the return of some major characters who’ve been missed. Above all else, we want to inject our comics with a massive dose of fun!”
In this latest round, either Marvel or Marvel media partner The Nerdist decided that the artists of these cover homages weren’t important enough to list, so your guess is as good as ours. Check out the covers below for Black Panther, The Mighty Captain Marvel, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Generation X, and The Unbeatable Squirrel-Girl:
