So... How Are You Meant To Count Avengers Issue Numbers Now?

So… How Are You Meant To Count Avengers Issue Numbers Now?

Posted by November 20, 2018 Comment

Last week, Marvel Comics published Avengers #10. But it also had the legacy numbering #700 and they made a big deal of it.

But the new Avengers solicitations for February 2019 are weird.

We have Avengers #14 and #15 which we presume will be legacy numbered as #704 and #705.

But it also lists the weekly Avengers series Avengers: No Road Home. With #1 also being specifically legacy-numbered as Avengers #708, #2 as Avengers #709 and #3 as Avengers #710.

What happened?

No Road Home writer Jim Zub tried to illuminate.

Okay, so that means that Avengers #706 and #707 will be Avengers #16 and #17, published in March. Before Avengers: Road To Nowhere #1 which will be Avengers #708 and published in February.

And then in April, Avengers #18 will also be… Avengers #718? And #717 will only be published after that?

The real reason? To convince readers and retailers that this limited weekly series counts if you are collecting Avengers. Basically you have five issues that you have to buy in February. Or our collection will have… a gap.

Maybe they need to call Todd McFarlane up, he went through this years ago with Spawn.

I feel how Hercules looks after writing all that.
