Posted  April 23, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Marvel announced more information about it’s Fall event called “Legacy.” The gist is that it seems to be correcting the off-course moves of the past few years, including returning to the numbering of issues from before it restarted at No. 1 for those titles that got that change starting in the “All-New” campaign. The news […]

Spring Super Megafest picked up steam on Saturday, and it continued the precedent of having some of the easiest access to celebrities of any convention.
