More Marvel relaunches for the UK
As reported here a few weeks ago, Panini UK's Marvel reprint monthlies are currently undergoing a relaunch. When the stories within the comics reach the 'Marvel NOW!' point (which instigated significant changes in the American originals), each title is being given a facelift and a renumbering at No.1.
The new first issues of Avengers Universe and The Mighty World of Marvel are in the shops now, and on July 17th Wolverine and Deadpool No.1 hits the stands. Two weeks later, on July 31st, a new volume of Essential X-Men begins.
This will only leave Marvel Legends with its original numbering for now, but that title reaches a significant point too, with No.100 published on July 24th. Marvel Legends will also be revamped in a few month's time, when its stories catch up to the Marvel NOW! issues.
All of these special issues have 100 pages for the usual price of £3.50 and are available from WH Smith, selected newsagents, and comic speciality shops.
