Last week, Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski announced plans to sell a million issues of a single comic, referencing the last time Marvel did that with the launch of Star Wars #1. And when new comics hit stores on Wednesday, featuring teaser adds for creative teams that included the return of some big names to Marvel, Bleeding Cool told you that this was all for Marvel Comics #1000, Marvel’s attempt to replicate the success of books from the Distinguished Competition such as Action Comics #1000 and Detective Comics #1000, anthologies featuring creative teams working on short stories as small as a single page. Is it enough star power to drive sales of a million issues?
Well, at 1PM Eastern today, a coordinated social media blast from a bunch of creators hit Twitter, some featuring the creative teams we already knew about, and some new ones as well. And one, posted by artist Adam Riches, reveals that Adam F. Goldberg, television writer and producer and creator of the shows The Goldbergs and Schooled, based on Goldberg’s own experience as a child in the 1980s and 1990s.
